    Andrew joined the South Carolina State Militia as a boy of 16 and later applied for a pension for his service during the Revolutionary War. Some details of Andrew's life can be gleaned from his pension application. He was awarded a pension at two separate times in his life. Andrew is also on a list of men who rode with Francis Marion.

    Andrew Logan married Ann Nancy Meriwether about 1794 in South Carolina. She was the daughter of Zachary Meriwether and Jane Lewis. Through this marriage, Andrew and Nancy's descendants are connected to the Meriwether and Lewis lines.

    In his will, Andrew lists the following children:
    Zachary Logan, John L. Logan, Francis Logan, Tyler Logan, Leroy Logan, Willis Logan, Huldah Logan Crawford, Frederick B. Logan, and Isaac Logan. Andrew appointed his oldest and youngest sons, Zachary Meriwether and Isaac Logan, as well as his nephew, Dr, John Logan as executors of his estate.

    Below are some brief notes about each child:
    1) Zachary Meriwether Logan, with several other family members, moved to Greene County, AL, just after 1820. His final resting place lies in Jasper County, MS.
    2) John Lewis Logan moved first to Greene County, Al, then on to Jasper County, MS, with wife Elizabeth and children.
    3) Tyler Logan was living in Lafayette County, MS by 1840. He married three times and raised a large family. His youngest son was born when he was 72.
    4) Huldah Logan married Robert Crawford. They moved first to Georgia, then on to Nacogdoches County, TX before 1860.
    5) Willis Logan also moved to Greene County, AL where he married Priscilla in 1828. By 1860 they, too, were living in Mississippi.
    6) Francis Logan remained in Abbeville and married Mary Buchanan. His will was proved in Abbeville, SC on 14 Nov. 1850.
    7)Leroy Elisha Logan was also in Greene County, Al before 1830 when he married Eliza. Letters of Administration of his estate were granted for probate in Oct 1854.
    8) Andrew J. Logan and family remained in South Carolina. He is buried in the First Damascus Baptist Church Cemetery, Phoenix Community, beside his mother and father.
    9) Frederick B. Logan and wife, Elizabeth Ray, also remained in South Carolina. Fred is shown to be a farmer in census records. Upon Fred's death, his estate was valued at $18,432. This was a nice sum at that time, so Fred appears to have been a succesfull manager.
    10) Isaac Logan married Sarah Sanmple, remained in South Carolina and raised at least 6 children.

    Andrew was a respected member of his community and church. The city of Greenwood now stands on land that was settled by the Logan's. His original log home, discovered inside another that was built around it, was moved to Ninety-Six National Historic Site. It stands as a monument to Andrew Logan's character and perseverance. His accomplishments within the Abbeville & Greenwood communities stand as a shining example of the strength and dedication, not just of Andrew's, but to all of early pioneers who built this country.
