Drury and Sarah Ann Lyons Logan’s Children

Four of Drury and Sarah Ann Lyons Logan’s children — three sons and one daughter — are buried in Old Salem Cemetery in Washington County, Illinois. Jane A. Logan died in 1851. Robert and Joseph Logan died 4 days apart in 1852. James H. Logan died in 1855. We don’t know the cause of death of any of them, but suspect cholera in the 1852 deaths. In Illinois in 1850, children between 1 and 5 years old accounted for 19 percent of all deaths.
