Personal Information:

Daniel Logee was born 25 Jul 1780 or 1781 in Glocester, Rhode Island3. He was the son of Caleb and Rachel Logee (His surname was entered as Loge in birth record). On 22 Jan 1804 a marriage intention was recorded in Douglas, Massachusetts for "Daniel Loge of Glocester" to "Mary Holbrook of Douglas.4" Mary Holbrook was born 16 Oct 1784 in Massachusetts5 (probably Douglas), the daughter of Sylvanus Holbrook and Mary Thayer6.

By 1810 Daniel Logee and his family were residing in Douglas7. Daniel and Mary Logee had nine children. Seven of their children's births and the death of their son, Ira Sales Logee, were recorded in Douglas (Surname listed as Logea in birth records8). When Daniel's brother Darling died suddenly in 1816, he served for a period of the time as the guardian for Darling's son, Leonard Logee9. On 11 Jan 1830 Daniel sold 1/3 of Darlings Logee's home farm to Leonard Logee for $215.10

Daniel Logee was also involved in land transactions with his brothers. In 1831 Daniel purchased an interest in the schoolhouse which was on Dorphin Logee's farm from his brother, Caleb Logee Jr.11 On 26 Feb 1839 Daniel and Mary Logee sold 5 acres of land in Burrillville to his brother, Burrill Logee.12

Family tradition related that Daniel was a carpenter by trade and was employed in the Cotton Mills13. Carpentry was an occupation followed by several other Logee ancestors. The 1850 Census for Daniel Logee in Guernsey County, Ohio confirmed this tradition14. Daniel Logee Sr. spent most of his adult life in Douglas, Massachusetts. Family tradition also indicated that Daniel Logee was a member of the Congregational Church and served as deacon for several years. The tradition of his service in the Church has not been proven by documentation.

On 15 Aug 1844 Mary (Holbrook) Logee, his wife of 40 years, passed away15. The cause of her death was listed in Douglas records as Heart Disease. She was buried by in the South Street Cemetery in Douglas.

On 22 May 1847 Daniel Logee executed his will in Douglas16. Between that date and 1850 he moved to Guernsey County, Ohio to be near several of his children. On 1 Feb 1854 he died in Guernsey County. The will of Daniel Logee Sr. mentioned each of his surviving children. It was witnessed by Joel Taft, Charlotte Taft "now Charlotte Meyer formerly of Douglas now of Burrillville, and Warner Humes of Douglas. His children were listed as Joseph H. Logee, Mary Ann Wallis w/o John Wallis, Phebe Southwick w/o Lovil Southwick, Rachel Sherman w/o Horace Sherman, Clarisa Tisdale w/o John Tisdale, Harriet McLane w/o Albert McLane, Daniel Logee (Jr.) and Sylvannus Logee. His will stated that only Daniel Jr. and Sylvannus had not received their share of his estate. He therefore left his entire estate to Daniel Jr. and Sylvannus and made them the executors of his estate. From that document it can be assumed that eight of his children survived until at least 1847..

Daniel Sr.'s grandson, Norval Logee, later wrote that Daniel Sr. was buried in "Our Old Family Graveyard at grandfather John Emerson's farm.17"
