Logan D. Mitchell
b. 4 June 1864, Heltonville, Lawrence County, Indiana, to Alexander (1832-1879) and Susannah (Norman) (1840-1917) Mitchell
d. 18 July 1944, Jackson County, Kansas

Anna “Annie” Moore

Children with Anna “Annie” Moore:

  • Grace (1891-1892)

Logan left Indiana (the only one of his siblings to leave the Hoosier state) sometime between 1880 and 1890. He married in Jackson County, Kansas, in 1890, and his children were born there, but by 1900, they were in Bloomington, McLean County, Illinois, where he worked for the railroad. After his wife died in Blaine County, Oklahoma, in 1909, he returned to Jackson County, Kansas with his youngest son and moved in with a relative.

Family tradition said Logan had to leave Indiana because of a fight while playing cards. In a photo, his right arm appears to be damaged or paralyzed.
