RE: James Ellis M. Logan
Hi Catherine,
I'm related to James through his son John Logan who had a son John Robert Logan, who had a daughter Ella Lenmare Logan who was my great grandmother. I have contacted a second cousin that is 81 years old that has given me a family tree book written by our cousin Rhonda. It is a substantial book, and will take me a while to get through. My cousin also submitted yDNA and that has helped me verify my genealogy research has been correct so far. I also highly recommend joining the pre1800Logan group on yahoo if you haven't already. They have a lot of files that have helped me. I put James Ellis M Logan's military record on there and pictures of my cousin Douglas Logan and my great grandmother Ella Lenmare Logan Wilson.

I'm not sure how closely related we are, but if you are a descendant of James Ellis than we are cousins, so it is wonderful to meet you cousin. And I will share any information I can find with you.

Thanks again,
Jennifer Palmer

RE: James Ellis M. Logan
Hi Catherine,
I agree, it makes more sense for him to be buried at Andrews Chapel in Coosa County. However, there is a record on that listed his military service and that checked out to be correct. It also listed Andrews Chapel UMC cemetery in Newnan Georgia as where he was buried. I assume and I may be mistaken, that if one record was correct on that site the other one is as well. And I may very well be wrong in assuming that. He might be buried at Andrews Chapel in Coosa county Alabama, and it was just too early for them to have a record of it. Until there is documented proof it's still a mystery where he is buried. I have his estate record and there is nothing about his burial in it. If you find out anything on this please let me know. And I will be happy to do the same :)

Found Patrick Smith's Death Date!
I just found Patrick Smith's death date as Jan. 1870 in the wee hours of the morning from the 1870 Mortality Index of Coosa Co, AL. It shows he was 81 b/ VA (b/ 1788) and widowed. Previously, I only had estimates of d/ bet 26 Jul 1867 and 1870 for Patrick and bet 1866 (AL State Census) and 1870 for Mary Lindsey Smith.

Note that the transcriber (Ancestry) interpreted the age as 87 with a birth of 1783, but I think it is 81.

This is our best clue to narrowing down where he and Mary might be buried, but there are some discrepancies or some things unclear in the source material.

I created an online memorial (#105763326) for him despite the missing grave which has all this information.

It's rather long & detailed, perhaps for a memorial, but I felt it was one of the best ways to reach a larger audience of Smith / Coosa Co. researchers. Maybe if we researchers pool our resources and experience, we can further pinpoint a probable grave location and hopefully find his grave.

I'm in the process of getting documentation together in hopes of joining DAR under David Lindsey, so I might be taking a break from the other line that I've been working on for 2 yrs and working at least a little more on the Smiths.

Lewis Parrish
Your turn to play with it & change the info by transferring the ownership over to you.

RE: Transfer of Lewis Parrish
Transferred. Apparently I have my lineage messed up somewhere, because I have Lewis as one of my great grandfathers? I am from John Julian Parrish lineage.

I am sorry, but I don't have any contact information for his family. Good luck with your research!

Re:Re: Lewis Hammond
My great, great grandfather Robert R. Mitchell who I was named after served with Company K., 37th Wisconsin Infantry before that he served with Company G., 7th Iowa Volunteer Infantry. I have been trying to locate the men he served with a small way of remembering the great sacrifice and honor shown by the men of the Union who rallied around the flag.
