Hi, Ginette. This is very useful. This tends to make Robert the son of:

ISAAC LOGAN b. ca. 1827-9, baptized Westfiield Parish, Kings Co., NB 5OCT1827, m. 1st FRANCES (FANNIE) WILSON (b. ca. 1825); m. 2nd MARY WAGNER (b. ca. 1841), d/o George and Mary Wagner.

with Isaac the s/o:

ROBERT A. LOGAN b. ca. 1797-8, d. Lands End, Westfield Parish, Kings Co., NB 3JUN1878 age 81 years, bur. by the Rev. E. S. Woodman, Westfield Parish, Kings Co., NB 5JUN1877 age 80 years, m. CATHERINE _____

and Robert very likely the son of the Loyalist, Robert Logan.

This is a bit speculative, but it fits very well in terms of timing and location. So much so that I have assumed it to be the case.

For Robert d. 1927, so far, I have:

ROBERT LOGAN b. 25NOV1851 (28NOV1850 in death record), d. 80 Adelaide St., Saint John, Saint John Co., NB 11AUG1927 age 76 years, 8 months and 17 days, buried Cedar Hill Cemetery, Saint John, Saint John Co., NB, m. MARY ANN (E.) GILLEN (b. 9OCT1847.)
In 1881, Robert Logan , b. NB ca. 1853, lived in Ward 5, Portland Parish, Saint John Co., NB. He was English, a labourer and Methodist. His wife, Mary (b. ca. 1848) was also b. NB, English and Methodist. Children were: Walter (ca. 1870), Fannie (ca. 1872) and Ida (ca. 1875.)
Living in Stanley Ward, Saint John, Saint John Co., NB in 1901.
Robert's death record most likely has his date-of-birth correctly as, in 1851, in Westfield Parish, Kings Co., NB, Isaac (24) and Frances (26) Logan had not yet any children.
Mary may be Mary Gillen b. ca. 1844, d/o John and Elizabeth Gillen (b. Ireland, arrived 1828) of Studholm Parish, Kings Co., NB in 1851.
1211. ARTHUR LOGAN (1st) b. ca. 1850-1
1212. WALTER LOGAN b. Harding's Point, Kings Co., NB SEP1870, m. Saint John Co., NB 7NOV1895 BERTHA CARVELL (b. Saint John, Saint John Co., NB 26JAN1873), d/o Lewis and Augusta (Saunders) Carvell.
Living in Stanley Ward, Saint John, Saint John Co., NB in 1901 'next door' to Robert and Mary Logan; therefore assumed to be their son. Walter Logan gave information for Robert Logan's death record and was given as his son.
Bertha may be the Bertha Carvill b. ca. 1870 living in Rothesay, Kings Co., NB in 1881 with her parents, Louis (Lewis?) and Augusta Carvill. A Carvill family was connected to the Capson family as a Lewis Alfred Carvell/Carvill m. Emma Capson.
12121. ROBERT LEWIS LOGAN b. Saint John, Saint John Co., NB 20MAY1901
1213. FANNIE E. LOGAN b. ca. 1872, m. Saint John, Saint John Co., NB by the Rev. J. H. Hughes 27JUN1894 EDWIN (EDWARD) B. HUMPHREYS (HUMPHREY.)
When married, Fannie is given as a d/o Robert Logan of Millidgeville.
Edwin or Edward may be the Edward Humphrey who d. Saint John Co., NB 18JUN1944. When married, he worked for the Saint John, ‘The Daily Telegraph’.
12131. FLORENCE MABEL HUMPHREYS b. Saint John, Saint John Co., NB 22FEB1896
1214. IDA LOGAN b. ca. 1875
1215. ARTHUR LOGAN (2nd) b. Millidgeville, Saint John Co., NB 12SEP1884.
Arthur gave Milledgeville as his birthplace and residence when he enlisted in the CEF in WWI in Saint John 23OCT1917. He was single, worked in a saw mill, was Church of England, and gave his next-of-kin as his mother, Mrs. Robert Logan of Millidgeville. He was 5 feet 4˝ inches with ruddy complexion, blue eyes and light hair. He apparently was taken on 9MAY1918.

Again, speculative in places.
