Originally called Sarber County when formed in 1871, Logan County was renamed in 1875 in honor of early pioneer James Logan who participated in the first territorial and state legislatures. Logan County was formed from Johnson, Yell, Scott and Franklin Counties. The county has two courthouses, Paris, and Booneville. Paris was incorporated in 1875 and Booneville was incorporated in 1878. Major towns within Logan County include Blue Mountain, Booneville, Caulksville, Magazine, Morrison Bluff, Paris, Ratcliff, Scranton and Subiaco. There were courthouse fires in 1874 and 1877.

I was surprised to come up on this Census of Martha having more children. So Hiram died between 1893-1900. Mary his first wife is buried on Mason Creek. I was told they have built a building over her grave. I guess the headstone had been removed and the fence around the small cem. Jessie Coe Combs
