CELESTIA (FIELDER) LOGAN , 83, passed away quietly at her home in Lexington at 6 a.m. of November 14, 1945 after an eight weeks illness. The fourth child and third daughter of the late John S. and Mary P. Fielder, Mrs. Logan was born September 20, 1862, in the same home in which she died. She was at the time of her death the oldest native citizen of Lexington, and to the end of her life remained interested in the progress and prosperity of the community. In April 1883, she was married to the late W.T. Logan, lawyer and former attorney-general. Mr. Logan died in 1894 and a daughter, Elizabeth, and a son, John passed away in 1905 and 1919 respectively. Mrs. Logan is survived by a daughter Mrs. Henry D. Barry and by two grandsons as well as by a number of nephews and nieces. Funeral services were conducted in the home with the Rev. Edwin E. Deusner, pastor of the First Baptist Church, of which Mrs. Logan had been a member for 68 years, officiating. She was buried in Lexington Cemetery beside her husband, parents, children and the seven brothers and sisters who always knew her home to be theirs. Pallbearers were D.G. Hudson, a true friend always faithful and true, Joe V. Holmes, A.H. Joyner, A.S. Stanford, John A. McCall, J.W. Stewart, John H. Wadley and W.A. Lawler....

Her devotion to brothers and sisters was remarkable, and the three brothers, Tom, John S. and Roy, who preceded her, seemed to her almost as her children and she was looked upon by them almost as their mother. Of all who survive her, no other can have as full sympathy as does Mary, her only child, the wife of my son Henry D. Barry, who has neither known nor desired any home other than that of his beloved mother-in-law. (W.V. Barry).

JOHN FIELDER LOGAN , only son and eldest child of the late W.T. Logan and Mrs. Celestia Fielder Logan, was born in Lexington February 12, 1884 and died at 2:20 o'clock a.m. Wednesday, April 9, 1919, following an operation for appendicitis in a sanatorium in Greenville, Mississippi. He was stricken on Tuesday last week at Scott, Mississippi, where he moved and located last summer holding an excellent position with the Mississippi Plantation Company, and on Wednesday was carried to Greenville where all that medical and surgical skill could suggest was done to save his life but in vain. His mother, Mrs. Celestia Logan, his sister, Miss Mary, and his uncle John S. Fielder, left Lexington on Thursday of last week and the mother and sister remained with him until the end. At one time there was hope of recovery and Mr. Fielder came home, but bad news soon followed him and he returned Monday night. Jack Logan was married November 29, 1909 to Miss Dixie, only child of Mr. and Mrs. J.F. Winslow and Mrs. Logan, with her little son Dick, survives the husband and father. Jack Logan was for a considerable time assistant Cashier of the Citizens Bank and in that position showed a wonderful capacity for meeting the people. He was generous to a fault, full of energy and peculiarly devoted to his people, his family and his friends, while noticeably undemonstrative. Once your friend, all Jack Logan could do, and all he had was at your command. He was wholly unselfish - reading at all times to sacrifice his own pleasure for those he loved. His death so young and a time when he was exceptionally well placed in life, falls as a hard blow on his mother, sister, wife and all who loved him. Those who were with him to the last say that for three days, he made a brave fight for live with hardly one chance in ten for his recovery. He knew those about him and talked to within five minutes of the separation of soul and body and almost in his last moments his questions were asked in a way to cause his mother the least clam. The funeral was held in the Logan home in Main Street at 3 o'clock, Thursday afternoon, Rev. Fleetwood Ball, the family pastor officiated assisted by Rev. S.F. Wynn. In speaking of the character and attributes of John Logan, Bro. Ball was able to speak from personal knowledge, having lived here for 15 years and being the pastor of the mother of the deceased. The floral offerings, coming from a host of friends and relatives, were many and beautiful and were indicative of the love and esteem in which Jack Logan was held. Immediately after the funeral service the remains were laid to rest in Lexington Cemetery and the following were pallbearers; J.W. Potts, John H. Wadley, John A. McCall, A.H. Joyner, H.D. Barry and Jack Hennessee.

W. T. LOGAN - After a long illness W.T. Logan quietly passed away at 7:20 a.m. Sunday the 18th of March 1894. Dick Logan is dead. Never again will his genial presence, his always kindly smile and cordial handshake greet us. In our mind's eye we see him - vigorous and cheerful, as we so long knew him, but the stern reality forces itself upon us forever on this earth. Logan was a man of whom it will always be a pleasure to think; so full of good will toward all men was he, and so warmly attached to the great multitude of friends with whom he was blessed. We see now, as we always do when death robs us of a loved one, times and places when and where we might possibly have more forcibly shown our regard for his notable nature, his kindly and self-sacrificing personality. Blessed as he was with more and warmer friends than are given to the majority of good men, we can all look back now and remember that a request or an appeal from even the smallest of them was never ignored by Logan. For twelve years since we first knew him as a struggling young lawyer, practicing in Decaturville, we had no warmer friend than Dick Logan. Now that he has gone to the Great Beyond, we can pay his memory no higher tribute than in saying, “He lived to bless mankind.” To the faithful wife, who loved and cheered him in health, who for nearly ten long weeks of his illness watched his every motion, answered his every call and from those whose hand he took every dose of medicine, and who now wears the weeds of widowhood our heart goes out in sympathy as deep as humanity can feel. The three little children are saved from anguish by being too small to fully realize their irreparable loss. Our feelings toward Mr. Logan and our grief for his death are the feelings and grief of hundreds of others--nay, of almost all who knew him. His ability as a lawyer, his worth as a citizen are well know to all. His remains were interred at Lexington Cemetery Monday afternoon, Rev. A. J. Barton conducting a short but touching service at the grave.--W. V. Barry
