About Joseph Logsdon

Joseph Logsdon served as a guide for General George Washington. ____________________________________________________________________________

In (George) Washington's diary for 1784, dated in September, he speaks of stopping at the house of Joseph Logsdon for the night. Leaving Mr. Logsdon after an early breakfast, Washington crossed the Alleghenies and arrived at Fort Pleasant, Joseph Logsdon acting as his guide.

An old history published in 1840 gives an account of Joseph and Mary Logsdon and their son, Joseph, who were among the frontiersmen who settled near the Green River in Kentucky, in 1185. Joseph, the son, was employed by the federal Government as an Indian Scout in this territory and his name is on the original 'Roll and Muster of Scouts and Spies in the Service of the U. S.'


Joseph Logsdon was a member of the Regulars, a very necessary organization, following the great war. He was killed in a skirmish with Indians.
