States: Indiana: Washington
I am hoping someone in or near Salem will be able to find a biography or genealogy or at least a mention in a History of the county on Ezekial D. Logan born about 1798 in Kentucky and lived in Jefferson County, Indiana then from about 1830 on in Washington County, Indiana. He was married to Nancy Caress and from the 1850-1870 census it looks like he opened his home to many others.
His daughter, Jane was married to my Spencer Botts Peugh. I have heard many family stories about Janes family but cannot seem to find documentation on them. Nancy died in 1862 in Washington County and Ezekial in 1875. I cannot find a listing of their children.
Also family stories have many connections to the Caress families in the area. I find lots of Caress children in various homes which leads me to believe the parents died leaving several children but again I cannot find proof they all belong to the same family. Spencer Botts Peugh and Jane raised at least two of the Caress children, Elizabeth and Sarah. There are so many of the Peugh descendants still living in Washington County, I am hoping one of you will see this and respond. Darline Duncan dad1037@Yahoo.com
