Personal Information:

Caleb Logee Jr. was born 23 Mar 1796 in Glocester, Rhode Island3. He was the son of Caleb and Rachel (Battles) Logee. As he reached adulthood he began to establish his position in the community of Burrillville. On 8 Oct 1818 Caleb Jr. concluded two land transactions. He first purchased 9 acres 94 rods of land in Burrillville from James King, James Paine and Mary Paine4. He also leased to "Caleb Logee, father" for $100, a farm for Caleb to "occupy for the rest of his Natural Life.5" The process of becoming an established voting member of the community was completed when he was voted free at the Burrillville Town Meeting on 31 Aug 18196. Sometime before 1821 he married Sarah Paine7. Sarah was born 16 Apr 1798, the daughter of the Reverend Moab and Sarah Paine8.

In1822 and 1825 Caleb Jr. was elected as auctioneer in Burrillville9. Following his father's death in 1825, he was no longer noted as Jr. He continued to serve as auctioneer for Burrillville from 1827 to 1830. In December 1830 fortune turned against Caleb. On 11 Dec 1830 he sold 55 acres to Duty Lapham for $30010. This was followed on 6 Jan 1831 with a sale of his interest in the "Schoolhouse standing on Land belonging to Dorphin Logee" to his brother Daniel Logee of Douglas, Mass. for $37.8011. On 7 Jan 1831 his financial world crumbled and he filed for bankruptcy with the State of Rhode Island12. Among the causes he listed for his financial troubles were: "Sickness of his wife and loss of time in consequence and being obliged to neglect his business for a long time in consequence of breaking his arm in two places and two of his ribs and the attendant expenses." His financial situation was so severe that he sent his two sons, aged 5 and 7 years, to work in the cotton mills13.

At some time before 1845 Caleb and Sarah separated or divorced. On 29 Mar 1845 Caleb Logee was married to Eliza Albee in Thompson, Connecticut by Vernon Stiles, Justice of the Peace (Her maiden name listed as Keith in most other records)14. Eliza was born 8 Dec 181415. In 1850 Caleb's family was residing in Smithfield, R.I.16 and by 1860 they had moved to Bellingham, Norfolk County, Massachusetts17. Caleb's occupation was listed as "farmer" or "farm labor" in those census records.

Sarah (Paine) Logee did not remarry. She maintained the Logee surname and was listed as residing in Blackstone, Worcester County, Massachusetts in both the 1850 and 1860 census18. In 1860 she was residing in the household of her daughter, Mary (Logee) Brown w/o Alexander C. Brown.

Caleb's second wife, Eliza, died on 17 Sep 1870 in Globe Village, Providence County, Rhode Island19. Her age was listed as 55yr 9m 9d. The cause of death was "liver complaint." Her parents were listed as Keith. The 1875 Rhode Island State Census listed "Caliph Logee" as an "inmate" residing in the Poor Farm in the West Side of Town, Burrillville20. On 5 May 1878 Caleb died in Burrillville of "Old Age.21" He was buried in the Logee Cemetery, West of Hill Rd. in Burrillville beside his parents22.

Sarah, Caleb's first wife, spent her last years with her daughter Sarah A. (Logee) Thayer in North Smithfield, Rhode Island23. Sarah died on 13 Dec 188124. She died in North Smithfield of a tumor. She was buried in Paine Lot, South of West Rd, Burrillville25. Her tombstone inscription was transcribed as: Sarah Paine Logee wife of Caleb, daughter of Rev. Moab & Sarah, born 16 Apr 1798, died 13 Dec 1881. Two of her daughters, Maria and Ellen, were buried in the same family burial site26.
