I think my grandfather, John Wm Floyd Logan was born in Russell county in 1856. His father was Eusebius Hudson Logan and I believe his mother was Lovina Akers. He also had a sister Lucinda A. Elizabeth Logan born in 1854. Could someone check and see if this family was in the census in either of those years, please? Thanks for any help you can give me. Anna

Hello -- I am working on the Logans who were in Russell County, Virginia in 1850-1860. I have found Eusefius Logan on the 1860 census with children John and Elizabeth (ages 6 and 5). There was a boy, Charles B. Logan, age 4, living in another household, who I think might be a brother. Eusefius and his wife had a child who was born dead on 10 October 1860. The census was taken on 1 August, so it could explain why one of the children (the youngest) was in another household, that of Henry G. and Elizabeth (Hicks) Mead(e). I can't seem to find any connection between the Logans and the Meades, so far. I can't figure out who else Charles B. could belong to....

Can you tell me where Eusebius and his children migrated after 1860. I can't find them on the 1870 census. I also can't find Eusebius on the 1850 census even though his age is given as 40 in 1860. I think he might be the son of James Logan by a first wife. James Logan was in Russell County on the 1830 census and on early tax lists; however, Abigail is on the list in the late 1830s and is the head of household on the 1840 and 1850 census. I think she had a sons named Stephen and Meredith C. Logan.

If you can help, I'd be delighted!!

Thanks.

Hi Teri, I am excited!!!! I haven't found many people working on this Logan family. I had just recently found Eusebius Logan in Russell county with my Grandfather, John William Floyd Logan. Could you tell me the name of the wife of Eusebius in the 1860 census? I have Eusebius with 5 sisters and no brothers, but there could have been some. I also have William McPheeters Logan as his father who was born in Augusta Co Va. Eusebius and his children went into WV. I have a lot of info on this family. Are you descended from one of Eusebius' siblings? E-mail me so we can exchange info with each other. Awharf@aol.com Cousins? Anna

On the 1860, Eusebius is spelled Eusefius Logan. His wife is Leatitia.

Do you have the 1870 census? If so, who are the children living in the home?

James Logan was living in Russell County as early as 1830. He is a likely brother to a man named Eusebius Logan who was born in 1799 and died in 1828 (Augusta County). Among his brothers was James Logan (the oldest).

From the Ancestral File (www.familysearch.org) I found:
John Logan, born 26 Dec. 1767 Rockbridge County, Virginia; died. 10 Jan. 1837, Augusta County, VA; he was the son of James Logan and Hannah Crocket.
Married Rachel McPheeters 30 Aug. 1797, Augusta County.
She was born 28 Dec. 1774, Middle River, Buffalo Gap Area (no county given), Virginia; died. 9 Jan. 1847Lexington, Virginia. No parents given.
Children:
Sophronia Logan, born 19 May 1798.
Eusebius Logan, born 16 Oct. 1799; died 14 Aug. 1828.
Lavina E. Logan, born 13 Jun 1801; died 14 Aug. 1885 (probably Knightstown, Henry, Indiana).
William McPheeters Logan, born 6 Mar. 1803.
Maria Logan, born 27 Mar. 1804; died after 1879.
James Logan, born 27 Jan. 1805.
John Newton Logan, born 24 Sept. 1810; died 18 Jan. 1816.
Robert Logan, born 13 Feb. 1812; died 6 Jan. 1896.
Joseph Alexander Logan, born 22 Aug. 1814; died 3 Oc t. 1878.
Jane Elizabeth Logan, born 11 Nov. 1816; died after 1879.It appears that James migrated to Russell County prior to 1830 and may have had, among his older sons, Stephen and Meredith C. Logan. The tax lists show them in the mid-1840s, probably when they reached the age of 16. Stephen appears to have gone to Letcher County, Kentucky by 1850 where he got married. Meredith C. Logan shows up in the 1850 and 1860 census of Russell County. Eusebius only shows up there in 1860. I can't find him on a census in 1850, so far.

This is not my line, though I do have a Logan line in my ancestry. I will contact you by e-mail.

Hi Teri, I had to find my 1870 census for Eusebius Logan. My Dad had said he thought his grandfather was named Eusephus. I have a picture of him and the name on the picture is Sephus. in the 1870 census it is Eusebius.

1870 census for Raleigh Co WV, Traphill TWP District
Eusebuis H (Hudson) Logan age 43 farming B. Va
Letesia F. age 32 housekeeping b. Va
Lucinda A. E. age 15 b. Va
John W. (William) F.(Floyd) age 13, b. Va
J (James) H. (Hudson) age 6 b. WV

March 1, 1867 there were twin boys born to Eusebius and they only lived one day. They were not named.

I did have a look at the 1870 census today, so confirmed that Charles was not his son.

I do think you have a good case that Eusebius was the son of William McPheeters Logan, though. I found (can't remember where) that he was married to Hannah Hudson. I have no idea where they were in 1850, though -- perhaps Augusta County.

Thanks.

Hi Teri, I also have Wm Mcpheeters Logan married to Hannah Hudson, May 16, 1827 in Augusta Co Va. I also have Hannah dying abt 1849. William was the son of John Logan and Rachael Mcpheeters, married August 30, 1797 in Augusta Co Va. William had a brother named Eusebuis that died when he was about 29 and William named a son Eusebuis or Eusephus as the case might be. His brother was still living when his son was born. William and Rachael had 10 children.

Unfortunately, Russell County is missing some records, like marriages prior to 1853, so I'm not having much success. Your information, though, does seem to eliminate your Eusebius to be the family I'm looking for. I wonder where your Eusebius was in 1850. Do you have any idea?

Teri,
I found some census on line for Augusta county and looked at them but didn't find Eusebuis there. I don't know if it was complete or not. My line had been in Augusta county so I had thought that was where I would find him. William McPheeters had a brother named Eusebuis b. in 1799 and died in 1828. Could he be the one you are looking for? It is an unusual name. Wishing you luck in finding your line. Anna

Did William M. Logan die in 1849? If so, was his wife still living and on the 1850 census?

I don't see a connection to Eusebius Logan to the Logan family (primarily James H. Logan whose wife was named Abigail). It looks like they had Stephen, William P., and a couple of other sons. No will or land recordss have shed a bit of light on this.

Thank you for your help. What were the other names of William and Hannah (Hudson) Logan, if you know?

Teri
