About James Logan of Scotland Family
PLEASE keep in mind that any data submitted needs to be accurate, no guessing at names and dates.

 We would like to acknowledge the significant contribution made by DOTTIE {LOGAN} SHUMAN - 1937 - 2014

This site originated predominantly documenting the DOUGLAS and MARGARET (McGonigal) LOGAN Family, who emigrated from Scotland with their ten children to Quincy, Massachusetts in 1920. There are now over 9000 ancestors and descendants covering fifteen generations from the year 1577 to present.   

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 Old Kilpatrick Dunbartonshire Scotland. 
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. 

Douglas's Father James was employed as an ironworker. James was born in Duntocher, the family eventually moving to Whiteinch. James found work in the Govan shipyards and settled there. 
He married Agnes Reid and had three children. His wife Agnes tragically died on Christmas Eve 1871, leaving behind three young children aged between one and four years. 

James moved away from the Govan area, and relocated to Port Glasgow which was around 20 miles  down the West coast of Scotland, on the River Clyde. His three children remained in Whiteinch with their Grandmother Ann Bow.  

James re-settled in Port Glasgow where he met and married Matilda Kitchen. They had three children Lindsay, Marion and Douglas.
His son, Douglas was born and raised in Port Glasgow, 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. The end of the first world war resulted in a downturn in shipyard orders leaving many men out of work. This was probably the main reason why Douglas and his family emigrated 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 and KITCHEN families and their relations 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 certifications of  birth, death, and marriage records, as well as a variety of other historical documents in reference to our ancestors.
There are also, where possible, various photographs, and family stories/memories which give us a glimpse of how they lived.

My name is Steven John Logan (Stevie) - My grandfather John Archibald Logan 1898-1983 was the only member of the entire Logan family from Port Glasgow, who remained in Scotland. The remainder of his family emigrated to Quincy, Massachusetts between 1914 and 1928. The present day Port Glasgow branch of the family is naturally decreasing although there are still around twenty or so descendants remaining in or around the Port Glasgow area. 
I have been researching the LOGAN family history since 2002.

A family's history is something to be cherished for eternity. It is my hope that this site will be updated and maintained by future generations, not only as a testimony to those who came before us, but also for our descendants to explore.
