    Notes 
    • After marriage, settled in Randolph Co., lived awhile in Barbour Co., and finally located on Allegheny. [Price, p.456]

      1857: John W. & Rachel Logan bought land from Nelson Wanless on Greenbrier River and Greenbrier Mtn in Pocahontas Co. [Grantee Index)

      In father's will in 1865, Rachel is not named, although other living daughters and John Logan are named, yet she's still living in 1870 census; how odd.

      CENSUS:
      1850 VA, Barbour Co, p.73 , #979
      John W. Logan 32 house carpenter, r.e. value: 800, all b. VA
      Rachel 25
      Prestin 5
      Nancy J. 3
      Eliza Ann 2
      Mary E. 6/12

      1850 VA, Randolph Co, 52nd Dist. (p.29) July 5, 1850
      Logan, William 63 r.e.value: 3050

      William E. 20
      Robert A. 25
      Edward Irvine 68 physician
      Absalom Stalnaker 34 farmer
      -- I'm including this entry here because I believe that William & Rebecca are John Logan's parents, given the next census entries. Potential brother Alexander C. Logan & family are on p.27, 2 pages earlier.

      1860 WV, Randolph Co, Mingo Flat P.O.(roll 1374, p.31) June 25,

      Mary 11
      Rebecca 5
      Almina J. 3
      Edward Ervin 77 carpenter
      Rebecca Logan 60
      Neighbors: 2 houses away is Alexander (45) and Mary A. (39) Logan & kids. Some Arbogasts nearby, and John (49) and Mary (44) Leonard. Seems like I've seen Leonard name somewhere, and Alexander Logan is probably John's brother.
