Stick around here and you should be able to find out some things. We've found out some things about the history of the Indian refugees in that locale, plus at least the Logan name is known. A lot of it was posted on another list, let me see if I can post some of that here, or get some of those folks to answer here.

Did you know there were some famous Indian Logans? I've seen some evidence that associates them with the Blackfoot ID.

Okay, I found a good link on the story of Chief Logan. Let me preface this by saying that there were other Logans in this part of the country who were not Native, and also that there might be Native Logan families not related to Chief Logan. It will take a lot of genealogical work to know to whom your people are connected, but this story is a good one in understanding the events of the times. This is from a site coming out of Harvard,
