|Zachariah||and||1. Margaret "Peggy" (nee Brown ) Logan
2. Margaret _______ (nee Wilson ) Logan
Zachariah and Peggy and their growing family lived in Allen County, Kentucky, after
their move from Tennessee until they moved to Illinois in the late 1830s. A daughter,
Levina "Vina" Logan married William B. Cockrill 2 May 1826 in Allen County. William
Logan, a son, married Matilda Thackston (also spelled Thaxton) 14 January 1834 in
Allen County. Another son, Carrol Bias Logan, wed Lucy Ann Venable 26 September
1835 in Allen County. A third son, Joab L. Logan, married Telitha Dodson, his cousin,
24 March 1838 in Allen County. All of these families would also move to southern
Illinois. The last tax listing for Zachariah Logan in Allen County, Kentucky, was in 1838.
On 1 September 1838, he sold three tracts of land in preparation for the move to Illinois.
The second documentation of early Logan residency in Illinois is land records. William
B. Cockrill bought 40 acres, SE NW, Section 10, Perry County, 16 January 1839. Joab
Logan (misspelled "Jacob") purchased 40 acres of Section 13, 4S 4W in Township 3,
Perry County, for $1.25 an acre 16 November 1839. Drury (misspelled Drewry) Logan,
another son of Zachariah and Peggy Brown Logan, bought 80 acres in the same section
and township on the same date. Drury Logan also bought 40 acres in St. Clair County 22
July 1839, Section 27, 3S 6W, Township 3.
The third source documenting the settling of the Logans and extended families in Illinois
is the 1840 Federal census. Only the "head of household" was documented by name.
"Zacharia" Logan was enumerated in the 1840 St. Clair County census. Son William
Logan and his family were enumerated in the same census. (Carrol) Bias Logan was
found in the 1840 Perry County, Illinois, census as was "Wm. B. Cochrel." Enumerated
adjacent to the William B. Cockrill family was Luther Garrison. Luther Garrison married
Mahala "Milly" Logan, another daughter of Zachariah and Peggy. A brother of Matilda
Thackston or Thaxton Logan, John Thaxton, was listed in the Washington County,
Illinois, census in 1840.
Also in 1841, son Drury Logan married Sarah Ann Lyon in St. Clair County.
