Biographical Information

  • From "History of Kentucky and Kentuckians: Biography of Daniel Boone Logan"
    • He found much to do in the new country besides winning a homestead from the wilderness in fighting the Indians for the Redskins at that time had not given up their claim to the state as their own hunting grounds. He participated in the battle of Blue Licks, now in Nicholas county, Kentucky, and was severely wounded in the engagement. Subsequently he located in that part of the state, in 1790, the section with which he was most familiar being now divided into Rowan, Fleming, Carter, Lewis and Boyd counties. He took as his wife Caroline Elizabeth Hughes, a young woman of Keystone State stock. They reared a family of fine sons and daughters, the sons being William, Moses, Abraham, Edward, and Tobias, the latter grandfather of Daniel Boone Logan; and the daughters were Julia, Susan, Sarah, and Elizabeth.
  • James' pension application for the Revolutionary was was disallowed by the Federal Government because his service was in 1792, after the end of the Revolutionary War.
  • Relocated from Pennsylvania to Kentucky ~1794




  • "The Lawyers and Lawmakers of Kentucky" gives the name of the father of the younger James Logan as William Logan and gives says he settled in North Carolina rather than Pennsylvania. Bruce Logan's document however states that he proved the younger James Logan came from Pennsylvania, leading more credence to the James Logan ancestry and story rather than the William Logan ancestry, so I'm going with that here.
  • Bruce Logan's document says that James is "from" Washington Co, PA. I am taking that as meaning "born", but that is not certain.
  • Bruce Logan indicates that the evidence for the second marriage is "questionable".
  • The History of Kentucky source lists another daughter "Susan". Since the listing of children later in the Bruce Logan document is more detailed, I'm going with that listing and assuming "Susan" was just mixed up with one of the other daughters.
  • The second child's name is apparently "Julian" even though she is female, although some sources list her as "Julia".
