Joe Logan's Genealogy Site


The purpose of this web site is to share my research into my family's history. Feel free to browse the web site and contact me if you think we may be related or have information we can share.

I started this web site in July 2007 and have only begun to add information to it. So check back over time for more updates. I hope to eventually post all my family research on the site.
Most of my ancestors for the last couple of hundred years have lived in Cleveland, Lincoln, and Rutherford counties of North Carolina, and York county of South Carolina. The primary focus of my research is on my LOGAN family ancestors, but I am gathering information on a number of families as follows:
BRYANT, BUFF, COSTNER, GOINS, GRAYSON, HOUSER, LOGAN, LONG, MCCALL, MCGLAMERY, MOORE, NEWTON, PARKER, PROCTOR, SELF, SIMS, WHITE, WILLIS.

Drury Logan
One focus of my family research has been my gggg-grandfather Drury Logan who is my earliest known Logan ancestor. He was born in Halifax County, VA in 1762 and lived most of his life in Rutherford County, NC. He served as a Private in the Army of the American Revolution, and his Revolutionary War Pension Application provides many details of his service.
