The Logan Iowa (Harrison County) area was where Far Guys Grandparents were born and raised.
This photo was most likely taken about 1889, I think it may be an engagement photo or wedding photo as her ring is featured prominently.
She died in 1944. This photo was not dated, but I suspect it was taken in the late 1930’s or early 1940’s. I think this photo was taken near her house in Logan with the cemetery in the background.
This was Martha’s house in Logan Iowa, I took this photo in 1986. That same day we visited the cemetery in Logan. I took a few photos but not many. I should have taken photos of grave markers.
Evelyn, Aunt Charlotte, Far Guy and by the tree Marvin and Uncle Herman. When I found this photo I wondered what they were looking at near those trees. A grave marker maybe.
The last few times we were that way we didn’t have time to stop. Too busy, had to be home for something or it was winter time. ( Our oldest Daughter used to live in Elkhorn Nebraska a suburb of Omaha. Logan Iowa is about 30 miles from Omaha Nebraska.)
I didn’t realize that the Lincoln Highway went right through downtown Logan. The Lincoln Highway used to be the East West route between New York City and San Francisco…at one time it would have been a wagon road. They have a wonderful history center in Logan and I would like to see the old train depot.
I sense a spring time trip to Iowa coming on to answer a few questions and visit some relatives. It should be on the list of things to do!
