Logan Family Genealogy Forum
I have some info about this man. He had a child born in the McKinley blockhouse. I am very interested in his relationship with the McKinleys. Would appreciate any info that anyone could give in that regard.
There are some indications that he may have been related to David Logan and Jane McKinley, parents of a very distinguished line of Kentucky patriots.
These are just random facts that I have gathered. I make no guarantee of their accuracy.
