About Francis Logan

From McCrady's "South Carolina in the Revolution, 1775-1780" quoted by Mrs. John A. Logan.

"A return of the militia and volunteers on duty in the fortified camp at Ninety-Six, the 17th day of November, 1775, under command of Major Andrew Williamson, by order of the Honorable Provincial Congress; commanding officers, sergeants and privates- - - Captain Francis Logan, two officers, three sergeants, fifteen privates."

Francis Logan emigrated to Virginia from New York, then to Berkley County, South Carolina.

"Major Francis Logan, a Revolutionary War Veteran of Old Ninety Six. The Tories were observed to be headed toward's Hannah's home to harm Major Francis. He hid under a nearby bridge. Hannah invited the Tories into the house to search for Major Francis & became upset when they began tossing her belongings around and creating a mess. Hannah quietly slipped outside, cut the reins to the Tories horses & set a pack of hounds chasing them. The Tories stopped their destruction of Hannah's home 7 left in pursuit of their horses. Hannah's actions kept her husband from being detected & harmed & kept her house in order!" (http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=eddiebradley&id=I1966)
