Newton “Newt” Logan, son of William Logan and Permelia Neece Logan, was born in Lincoln County, Tennessee. His twin brother was Jasper Logan. (This is yet another way the once-highly popular name “Jasper Newton” was used: Jasper and Newton.) Newton Logan married Belinda Ashlock. He served in Co. F, 11th Missouri Infantry Regiment, Parson’s Brigade, Smith’s Corps, Confederate States of America. He was wounded at the Battle of Prairie Grove, Arkansas, and his right leg was amputated. He was not quite 20 years old.
