South Carolina Land Grant referencing William Logan and Thomas Logan, Buffalo Creek, York County, South Carolina, 1790

Our thanks to Kay Dawson for sharing this grant from South Carolina Land Grants. “Buffillo” is Buffalo Creek in York County, South Carolina. York County is continuous with North Carolina. “Archilos” Holt is Achilles or sometimes Akilles Holt. Achilles Holt and William Logan were York County neighbors. The Achilles/Akilles Holt Cemetery is extant, although in rough condition when I was last there. There are pictures of the cemetery in “Logan Connections.”

Deeds for Elijah B. Logan, Spartanburg County, South Carolina, 1825 and 1826

Our thanks to Kay Dawson who uncovered two more deeds for Elijah B. Logan in Spartanburgh District, South Carolina. In Logan Connections, we have an 1822 deed to Elijah B. and another to him in 1833 and again in 1836 (pages 114 and 115). Our additional information is as follows for 1825 and 1826:

28 Nov 1825, Thomas Thomas (Spartanburgh Dist) to Elijah B. Logan (same) for $85 sold a certain tract of land in said List. on the waters of Thickety Creek, containing 45 acres land. Witness George Richards, John R. Richards. Signed Thomas Thomas. Witness oath by John R. Richards 9 Mar 1826 to F.W. Robertson J.P. Rec. 31 Dec 1833.

6 Nov 1826, Ephraim Smith (Spartanburgh Dist) to Elijah B. Logan (same), for $25 sold a certain tract of land in said Dist., containing 50 acres more or less, on the waters of Thickety creek. Border: Preuet, Frances Little, Lee Linder, Ephraim Smith, Lick Branch. Witness George Richards, Moses Webber. Signed Ephraim Smith. Witness oath by George Richards 2 Mar 1827 to Geo. Camp J.Q. Rec. 31 Dec 1833.

The source for the above deeds is: Spartanburg County/District South Carolina Deed Abstracts, Books A-T 1785-1827 by Albert Bruce Pruitt, 1989.

Elijah B. Logan was the son of William Logan and Jane Margaret Black of York County, South Carolina, born circa 1788. He married Patsy _____.

Joseph Logan (1823-1893): additional information

Paulette Johnson-Powell added additional information about the Joseph Logan line in an email to several of the researchers who have helped along the way and/or who are researching this line. I’m lightly editing that portion of Paulette’s email, with her permission, for the Logan Connections website:

“I can tell you beyond a doubt that Nancy/Nannie Logan was a daughter of Joseph Logan (b. 11/11/1823 York, SC – d. 4/25/1893 Cherokee County, AL).  Joseph was married two times.  The first was to E. Caroline Francis Stroup and the second was to Catherine Lankford.  He had six children with E. Caroline:  (1) Martha Jane Logan Lankford (2) Fanny S Logan Helton (3) Anacondie “Anna/Mandy” Logan Kines (4) George Washington  Logan (5) Benjamin Logan (6) Nancy/Nannie Logan Wood.
Joseph and Catherine had seven children:  (1) Josephus L Logan (2) Lucy Logan (3) Charles Henry Logan (4) Abraham “Abe” Helton Logan (5) Reuben “Riley” Wright Logan (6) Josephine “Josie” Logan Mobley (7) William M Logan.
The only possible child that Joseph had that some might disagree with, was his and E. Caroline’s son, Benjamin Logan.  Almost all of the trees in Ancestry have his parents as Andres J. (Jackson) Logan and Sarah Ann Thompson.  They are wrong!  There is a span in his life from 1880 when he was 10 yrs old, until he married on 9 Dec 1900, that I have been unable to find him.  The trees that are wrong have him listed as Benjamin W. Logan.  He is listed like this in the 1860 Census.  They also have Benjamin W. digging for gold in CA in 1888, 1890, 1896.  In Mar 1900 they have him living in Los Angeles, CA.  On 9 Dec 1900 they have him marrying Sallie Treadway, who was the wife to my Benjamin Logan.
Looking at the Cedartown Standard 2/23/1922, there is a one liner that says, “Mrs. Mae Merritt, of your city, spent the week-end here as the guest of her Aunt, Mrs. M. C. Wood”.  Mrs. Mae Merritt was Ida Mae Logan, Benjamin and Sallie’s oldest child.  Mrs. M.C. Wood was Nancy/Nannie Logan Wood, Benjamin’s sister.  Additionally, a descendant of Benjamin and Sallie has taken a DNA test and he matches [a known descendant] with 260.9 cM, 2.9 gens.  I am very confident I have the right Benjamin Logan.

Change of plans (the people have spoken!)

Well, it only took a few minutes after posting Paulette’s outline to hear from several of you who said — paraphrasing — that it is the weekend and this is when you have time to do your genealogy work and that you are excited about what Paulette has done! Would I please go ahead and post her more complete work now. (And not torture/tease you any longer.)

Yes, of course! Thanks, as always, for the input. I forgot a basic rule: Never stand in the way of ardent genies and information that can help further their search! Here ’tis (part 1): (The format is a little askew because of WordPress.)

Joseph Logan, York Co., SC — Cherokee Co., AL (1823-1893) Descendants

Paulette Johnson-Powell has focused pretty much non-stop for a year-and-a-half on Joseph Logan (11/11/1823, York County, South Carolina–4/25/1893, Cherokee County, Alabama) and his descendants. Paulette’s work is masterful. Many of you on the Logan Connections website have worked with Paulette to accomplish this. All of you have helped advance our knowledge of this line. Thank you, Paulette, and thank you all.

This first post is an outline of the Joseph Logan family researched by Paulette. Later, after we’ve had time to study and digest this a bit, we’ll post Joseph Logan’s detailed tree. Unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t transfer the computer program’s normal indentations, but the numbers still allow us to follow the line.

Much appreciated! More to follow soon.

Rutherford County, North Carolina, tax list, showing William Logan, 1782

William Logan was one of the four Logan brothers who fought at the Battle of Kings Mountain in 1780, two years prior to this tax list. His adjacent neighbor, Gabriel Washburn, was, like William Logan, a church official for Buffalo Baptist Church in York County, South Carolina.

Note how slaves are counted in the tax list along with horses and cattle as “things” to be taxed, denying them their humanity.

Obituary: Sarah “Sallie” Rowell Logan, spouse of Lt. David Jackson Logan, killed in Civil War, McConnellsville, York County, South Carolina, 1836-1904

Sarah “Sallie” Rowell, daughter of Benjamin D. Rowell and Elizabeth “Eliza” Catherine McFadden Rowell, was born 15 February 1836 in York County, South Carolina. She married David Jackson Logan, son of John Randolph Logan and Sarah Patterson Jackson Logan. He was killed by a sniper in the trenches surrounding Petersburg, Virginia, 18 June 1864. Sallie Rowell Logan died 26 April 1904. She and David Jackson Logan are buried at Bethesda Presbyterian Churchyard, York County, South Carolina.

(Note: David Jackson Logan’s first name and middle initial are incorrect below.)

Buffalo Baptist Church records, originally York County, now Cherokee County, South Carolina, 1803-1860

The earliest records of Buffalo Baptist Church have long been lost. The church is thought to have been founded circa 1770-1772. In 1860, Buffalo Church appointed R.E. Porter to locate and transcribe all existing church records. Porter was able to find records from circa 1803 to 1860. The Broad River Genealogical Society Quarterly (Vol. X, Nov. 1990) printed some of these records “transcribed from the microfilm copy of Porter’s transcription of the church records of the Historical Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention….” by Roy M. Brooks.

We shared the Logan names in an earlier post (Anthony, William, Esom, Green, and John Logan). One of them, William Logan, the Logan brother who fought at the Battle of Kings Mountain, was a “Judge of Temporal Controversy” and “Judge of Temporal Disputes” for Buffalo Church. In this post, we’re highlighting individuals — members of Buffalo Baptist Church — whose family names have been associated with our Logan family.

Among the earliest Elders found in the Buffalo Baptist Church records are James Bridges and James Byars. As researcher Beverly Logan Craig points out, Bridges and Logans are closely associated. We find them as neighbors, coreligionists, and in deeds and other documentation. So far, we haven’t found any intermarriage, which is a little surprising.

The Byars, Byers, Bias, Byas (etc.) name is even more closely affiliated with our Logans. William Logan’s brother, Joseph, married Anna “Annie” Bias. There are several Bias and Byas and Byars Logans. The name “Bias” continues down through the generations in, especially, the Joseph Logan line.

Gabriel (various spellings) Washburn is an early deacon of Buffalo Church. It’s not surprising that “Gabrael” Washburn sold land to William Logan and that Washburn was a chain carrier for William Logan’s survey in 1783. They were neighbors and church officials, after all.

In addition to William Logan, Peter Quinn was a Judge of Temporal Controversy for the church. Peter Quinn was a former Tory in the Revolutionary War, demonstrating how communities, neighbors, and churches were split by that war and how, later, they had to learn to reconcile.

Another intriguing name is Charles Hester, a fellow Judge of Temporal Disputes with William Logan. A Charles Hester, who died in 1828 in nearby Spartanburg District, was Thomas Logan’s stepfather. Is this Charles Hester one and the same?

Here are some names of Buffalo Baptist Church members from 1803-1860 with brief comments:

  • Abednego Adams — Was a witness to several deeds involving William Logan
  • Aaron, Amelia, Catron,  Elizabeth, Fanny, John, Lindia, Moses, Nancy, Patsy, Robert, Sarah, Stephen, Susanna, Sylvira, Unicy, and Wilis Bridges — Along with James, more members of the closely-affiliated Bridges family
  • Byars — In addition to James Byars, Ann, Elizabeth, Francis, James, Joseph, Kisiah, Rhoda, Prudence, and Thomas  Byars were church members.
  • Able, Isac, Guinna, and Polly Black — William Logan’s wife was Jane Margaret Black. Are these Blacks related? (The Blacks were also Loyalists in the Revolutionary War.)
  • Hugh Kerr — A neighbor of William Logan
  • Raney — James, Louise, and Saray Raney; and Lucinda Rany — William Logan’s son, John Black Logan, married Lois “Lou” Rainey. Are these families related?

 

 

 

Photograph: Four generations of Lowry/Vassey family, Cherokee County, South Carolina

Zulia Pacolet Vassey Lowry — what a wonderful name! — the woman in the center of this photograph (below), was the daughter of William Vassey and Nancy A. Logan (Vassey). Zulia Pacolet Vassey married John Green Lowry. Nancy A. Logan’s father was Elijah B. Logan, son of William Logan and Jane Margaret Black Logan. William Logan was one of the four Logan brothers at the Battle of Kings Mountain in October 1780.

Elijah B. Logan was born in York County, South Carolina. He married Patsy ______. Nancy “Nannie” A. Logan was born in Spartanburg District, South Carolina. She married William Vassey. Zulia Pacolet Vassey was born in Spartanburg County, SC. The family lived for a time in Union County, then Cherokee County, SC.

This four-generations family photograph consists of, from left to right:
