Marion County

Father, Alexander Daniel McIlvoy
Mother, Mary Magdalene McConley

Married William B Logsdon on June 2, 1840 in Springfield, Washington Co, KY.

Alice and her family arrived on the shores of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania aboard the "North Star" out of Liverpool, England on 28 August 1818. Regardless of what Alice's headstone says, she was NOT born in 1818. She arrived in 1818 as did a younger sister. Her obit says she was 90 years old when she died in 1903. (b. 1812-1813)

In 1840, when Alice was about 27 years old she married William B. Logsdon. She was William's second wife. His first wife, Nancy Ann Worland, had been dead almost 2 years and William already had 10 children when he and Alice were married at St. Rose Church in Springfield. Before 1860 Alice would give William ten more children! Their large family lived for many years on a farm known as the Horse Shoe Bend Farm on the Little Beech River.
