Biography of Beaty Logan

Beaty Logan was born August 1, 1788, on the Danville Road, five miles from Stanford, Kentucky.  He removed to Marion County about 1810, returning to Lincoln County in 1832.  He was a soldier in the War of 1812, with General Hopkins, in the Northwest.  He was a member of the Reformed Church; in politics a Democrat; a farmer, losing about thirty slaves as the result of the late war, and, dying August 13, 1872, was buried at Danville.  He was the son of Captain James Logan, who, a valiant soldier from beginning to end of the Revolutionary War, was with General Greene in the South and afterward removed from Virginia to Kentucky in an early day and located near Stanford; was a relative and friend of Colonel Benjamin Logan, and was associated with him in many conflicts in pioneer days.  Ready as he ever was to do battle for his country in all her conflicts for liberty and justice, he was noted as a peace-maker in the civil walks of life, and was greatly esteemed and generally sought as an arbiter among neighbors, securing them against litigation and its evil consequences.  He was a member of the Presbyterian Church, in politics a Democrat, and lies buried at Stanford.  He married Sarah Beaty, of Washington County, Virginia, and from their union sprang Robert, Matthew, Sally (Dawson), and Beaty.  Beaty married Patsey, daughter of Martin Everheart, of Marion County (born November 17, 1796, died June 8, 1870), and to them were born John F., Sarah E. (Walters), Rose Ann (Ray), Matthew D., Elwiza (deceased), Allison E., Robert D., Victoria (Hunley) and Jennie (Prewitt).  Matthew D. was born in Marion County, January 8, 1822, and enlisted in Captain Doherty’s company, Second Kentucky, Colonel McKee’s regiment, in the Mexican War.  He commenced the study of medicine with Dr. Huffman, of Stanford, graduated in 1850 at the Jefferson Medical College at Philadelphia, and practiced at Lancaster, Kentucky, until the commencement of the late war.  In 1861 he was elected captain of Company I, Forrest’s cavalry; was captured at Fort Donelson and remained a prisoner of war at Johnson’s Island seven months.  He was exchanged at Pittsburg, Mississippi, reported to escort for that general; was assigned to Morgan’s command and appointed major of Gano’s regiment, in which he was early promoted to the lieutenant-colonelcy.  He was captured in the famous Ohio raid, consigned to the pen at Columbus and exchanged before the close of the war at Charleston, South Carolina.  Here he secured the release of a number of war prisoners of the One Hundred and Fifty-Seventh New York on account of kind treatment of himself and others by officers of that regiment while prisoners.  Colonel Logan is still a consistent Democrat.  Allison E. Logan was born May 4, 1826, in Marion County; early in the late war enlisted in Company A, Sixth Kentucky Confederate Cavalry under Colonel Grigsby, Morgan’s command; was captured on the Ohio raid; escaped from Camp Douglas by permission of the guard, constructed a raft and placed General Morgan across the Tennessee River on his escape, for which service he declined a captain’s commission and served in the last battle of the war.  In politics he is a Democrat.  Captain Robert D. Logan was born January 20, 1829, in Marion County, Kentucky; was captain of Company A, Sixth Regiment, Kentucky Confederate Cavalry, remaining in the service until the final surrender.  He was captured on the Ohio raid but was exchanged at Hilton Head, South Carolina.  He and his brothers formed a part of the escort of Jefferson Davis at his attempted escape.  They with others proffered to conduct him out of the United States, which offer he declined in words of tender sympathy.  They each received a portion of the Confederate specie at its final distribution, which they retain as valued relics.  From a part of it a very handsome silver fishing reel has been constructed, which is highly prized by the brothers.  They are now engaged in farming, with marked success, all living together, happy, genial and intelligent gentlemen, whose hospitality is of a kind that still reminds the stranger of the “old Kentucky home”.  None of them have ever married, and they all cling to the tenets of the Democratic party.
