His wife was also born in the year 1812, and by birth is a Virginian, although she moved to Kentucky when quite young, only remaining there a short time when she removed to Missouri, and there has since remained, being now in her seventy-seventh year.   She remembers and can tell many interesting anecdotes connected with the early settlement of the country, and can remember when the Indians were almost everyday visitors.  Mr. and Mrs. James Logan are the parents of one child, Eugene M., who after completing his common school education in Iron County public schools took a two years course in the Westminster College, at Fulton, Mo.  December 30, 1880 he married Miss Fannie L. Reyburn, and to this union were born three children: Jennie E., Lemie and Annie B., all now living.  Mr. Logan was, for a short time, engaged in merchandising at Belleview, after which he engaged in agricultural pursuits. He owns ninety acres of land; sixty being under cultivation, and aside from this, he owns several other farms throughout the county.  The old homestead, where Mr. Logan now lives is a very beautiful place, being situated about one mile from Belleview.  Mr. Logan is a member of the Masonic fraternity, and he and wife are members of the Presbyterian Church.
