ALLEN, LOGAN, MCCAMPBELL posted by James Allen Smith on Wednesday, October 1, 1997 

My gg-grandparents, James ALLEN and Elizabeth LOGAN, were married in Rockbridge County, VA, in 1801 and migrated that same year to Shelby County, KY, about 30 miles east of Louisville near the Ohio River. An old handwritten document states they traveled with Alexander LOGAN and Jane MCCAMPBELL and James McCampbell and Margaret LOGAN. They arrived by water above The Falls of the Ohio (Louisville) and traveled the short distance to the Shelby County area to join those who had migrated from Rockbridge County (through the Cumberland Gap) by land. James McCampbell and Margaret Logan remained near the landing site and eventually settled across the Ohio River near Charles Town. Would anybody suggest the most likely migration route they would have taken in 1801 from Rockbridge County to a point on the Ohio River?

The BURT - SMITH family had roots in the Simpsonville, Ky., Shelby county area, and/or Crestwood, Ky., Oldham county area. Thomas P. BURT could have possibly been from Indiana. The BURT family moved to Sangamon county, IL., in the New City area, which is just south of Springfield, IL., where they resided on a farm. I do not know the exact date, but I estimate around 1900-1903 Their daughter, Clinte BURT, married Royal H. White in Springfield, IL, at the First Christian Church, estimated date, 1905-06. They had 7 children: Hiram E, Harwood, James, Ruth, Ester, Leah, & Marjorie. Would appreciate any information on these family members, or any suggestions that might help me to research them.
