|About James Logan of Scotland Family
PLEASE keep in mind the data needs to be accurate, no guessing at names and dates.
This web site was initiated by Bruce Logan in 2014.
It started out with the Douglas and Margaret Logan Family. It now has both ancestors and descendants totaling over 5600 people from the year 1690 to present, and covering nine generations.
Douglas Logan was born in Port Glasgow, Scotland in 1878.
He was the youngest child of James Logan and Matilda Kitchen.
His father James was born in 1846 in New Kilpatrick near Dunbartonshire.
James's parents were David Logan and Ann Bow, the family resided in Whiteinch which was on the opposite bank of the river Clyde from Govan. Both areas are approximately six miles from Glasgow.
James Logan was employed as an ironworker and settled in Govan close to the shipyards He married Agnes Reid and had three children. Sadly his first wife Agnes Reid, died on Christmas Eve 1871.
James moved away from the Govan area, and relocated to Port Glasgow which was around 20 miles downriver, just before Greenock. His three children remained in Whiteinch with their Grandmother Ann Bow.
His son, Douglas was born and bred in Port Glasgow, however he moved to Govan soon after completing his apprenticeship and worked as a ship plater in Fairfields shipyard. It was during this time that he met and married Margaret McGonigal.
They raised ten children in Govan before emigrating to Quincy, Massachusetts, USA in 1920.
An eleventh child was born in Quincy, Massachusetts, where Douglas had found employment as a ship fitter with the Naval shipyard at Charlestown, Suffolk, MA.
This website maps the Logan family and their relations predominantly from their roots in Scotland and those who emigrated to the United States. There are a few entries from Canada, England, and Australia as well.
It contains verified birth, marriage, death, and a variety of other documents.
There are photographs, and family stories/memories which give us an insight to our ancestors lives.
My name is Steven John Logan (Stevie) - My grandfather John Archibald Logan 1898-1983 was the only member of the Logan family from Port Glasgow,who remained in Scotland. The entire Logan family emigrated to Quincy, Massachusetts between 1914 and 1928. The Port Glasgow branch of the family is decreasing although there are still around twenty or so descendants who still live in or around the Port Glasgow area. There are many more members of the family in the United states.
A family's history is something to be cherished for eternity. I hope that this site will be updated and maintained by future generations, as a testimony to those who came before us, and for our descendants to explore.
