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.
