William Logan, son of Zachariah Logan, applied for membership in the Cherokee Nation with the Dawes Commission in 1896. William Logan was 83. William made his mark for his signature, being unable to write his name. Like all our Logan family’s applications for Cherokee Nation citizenship, William Logan’s was rejected (“demurred” in the legal language of the Dawes Commission). The document which follows is William Logan’s affirmation of his son, Drury Logan’s, eligibility for Cherokee Nation membership.
