Daughter of William, Esq, and Sally Bush of Glasgow. Married Stephen Trigg Logan on June 25, 1823; mother of four sons and four daughters. (Sarah "Sally" Lamon, Jennie Coleman, Mary Hay and Kate Littler)
LOGAN, STEPHEN T., was born Feb. 24, 1800, in Franklin county, Ky. His parents moved to Lincoln county in 1802. Stephen T. attended school at Frankfort, and became a clerk in the office of the Secretary of State, under Martin D. Hardin, the father of Col. John J. Hardin, who fell at the battle of Buena Vista, Mexico, in 1846. Although Stephen T. Logan was but thirteen years old at the time, it so happened that in the discharge of his duties he issued all the commissions to the officers under Governor and Gen. Shelby in his campaign to the northern frontier in the war of 1812. The office of the Secretary of State was kept in the third story of the capitol, which was burned soon after, and S. T. Logan came very near being burned with it. In 1817 he went to Glasgow, Ky., studied law and practiced there.
He was married in Glasgow, in June, 1823, to America T. Bush, who was born there in 1806. They had four children in Glasgow, two of whom died young. Mr. Logan moved his family to Springfield, Ill., arriving May 16, 1832. They had four children in Springfield. Their children were two sons and four daughters. Both sons and two daughters are dead.
Mrs. America T. Logan died Feb. 24, 1868, and Stephen T. Logan resides in Springfield. He has lived in the same house forty years.
Stephen T. Logan was elected Judge of a circuit that included about one-fourth of the State. After serving a short time, he resigned in 1837. He was again elected, in 1839, without his consent, but resigned in a few weeks, both times because he could not live on the salary, and could do better by private practice. Judge Logan served four terms in the State Legislature, and was a member of the State Constitutional Convention of 1847. early in life he established a reputation as one of the most able lawyers in the country, and long enjoyed a lucrative practice. He retired several years ago, and is now in his seventy-seventh year.
He was at one time a partner with Abraham Lincoln. Success never affected him injuriously. His whole life has been plain and unostentatious.
