Hello! Welcome to our family website. On these pages you will find information about our family and ancestors. Please feel free to kick off your shoes and make yourself at home while browsing!! The main names of our research are Logan, Day, Wicker, Shanding/Schanding/Johnting, Gerdts, Paarmann, Edwards, Hartman(n). There are many others in the list as well.

The Gerdts information that I have was provided primarily by Kaye Strause. The Paarmann information was provided by Eleanor Arey. The Schanding information was provided by Kaye Johnting and her daughter, Deb, and along with that family is the Sellers family, whose information was given to me by James Sellers. Please contact me privately if you would like any of these e-mail addresses.

Many of our roots originated in Germany. The Logan family is probably Scot-Irish. The Logan family of Thomas, Mary, and theirs sons William and John, came to America aboard the shp Chichester from Belfast about 1767. They arrived in Charleston in January of 1768. They quickly moved west to the former District Ninety-Six, later divided and re-named Laurens County. About 1800, the sons, William and John, moved west into the Northwest Territory, the part that would later become Franklin and Union Counties of Indiana. Our line had been here almost 200 years. The original settlement is no longer standing as the area is now a reservoir, but some of the original cabins still stand in a museum, just north of the lake, in Dunlapsville. Please e-mail me if you are also researching this or other Logan lines.

Thanks for visiting!
