Douglas Logan was born in Port Glasgow 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 and his family resided in Whiteinch, near Partick approximately six miles from Glasgow. James settled in Govan close to the shipyards and had been married with 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 with the Quincy Fore River shipyard.
Port Glasgow and Govan, located on the banks of the river Clyde, and the Fore River Shipyard in Quincy, Massachusetts are rich in shipbuilding history, and between them have built and launched a number of the world's most iconic ships.
