Samuel Hunt Logan and Mary Clark Collier Logan came to Texas in about 1790 with their three sons and two daughters.
Sam was son of John Hunt Logan and Lavenia (Moseley) Logan.Jack was born in NC about 1802 and Lavenia was born in Edgefield District, SC, about 1805.They both came to Cahaba County, Alabama about 1818--Jack with his maternal uncle after whom he was named, John Hunt; and, Lavenia with her father Joab Moseley.Hunt and Moseley land joined and was on the county line after Bibb Co. was formed--but in Perry County.John Hunt was one of three men selected to decide upon a location in the "center" of the county, to become the county Seat for Bibb Co; and, he was the first of two men to purchase a lot in the land surveyed for the town of Centreville.
Jack Logan became the "Captain of the Flat Boats"; i.e., shallow draft barges 12' x 40' that could hold as many as 300 bales of cotton (twice the amount of the largest steamer when this mode of transportation was tried in the 1820s).After 25 years, he devoted himself totally to farming.
Trying to locate the father and siblings of Jack Logan has not been successful to date.Family legend is that his father's name was John and there was a John Logan married a Polly (Mary?) Hunt in Cabarrus Co., in 1797.The family moved to Tennessee before Jack came to Alabama and it is not known if the family remained in Tennessee; or, according to one account, moved on to Ohio.
