Thomas LOGAN (Edward)

Thomas LOGAN came to Manitoba in 1868 from Aurora, Ont., via St. Paul and the Red River to Fort Garry, arriving in Portage la Prairie in 1869.

Charles LOGAN followed him in 1870 or 1871, and the two brothers built a flour-mill in the west end of the town, operating it for a year and a half, and then selling out to the late Billy Smith. The two brothers then moved out on the farm about three miles north-west of town, where they farmed till 1881, when Thomas LOGAN moved back into Portage la Prairie, his brother Charles retaining the farm.

Thomas went into business in that year - general store on Main Street, under the firm name of LOGAN & HENDERSON, at the same time carrying on a considerable business in real estate. The subject of this sketch married Jane HENDERSON and there were seven children, four boys and three girls: Edward, now living in Montreal; Walter, of Portage la Prairie; SHERMAN, who was killed in action on the 8th of October, 1916, at the Somme, and Gordon, of Drumheller, Sask.; Joey (Mrs. R. G. Taylor), of Swan River; Margaret, who died in 1895; and Mary (Mrs. J. R. Walker, of this city). And there are also ten grandchildren.

Thomas LOGAN opened the first Methodist Sunday School in Portage la Prairie, 1872, in the house of John Dougald McKie, at the west end. He took a very active interest in the affairs of the Methodist Church, continuing as superintendent of the Sunday School for many years and taking duty in the district as a very acceptable local preacher.

Walter James LOGAN (Thomas, Edward)

Walter LOGAN, worked for the Telephone Office. < From Ralph Walter Logan, Walter's son> Except for the time working in the Telephone trade (I imagine that some of that would sort of be training on the job) when he worked in such places as California, San Francisco, New York City, Montreal, and B.C.: he lived all his life in Portage la Prairie. When his father died in 1902, he would have been 18. So I do not know for sure when he was doing telephone work before the war.

When the war started he would be 30, and in the army, that age results in a nickname of 'Pop', since most of his buddies would be in their late teens, or early twenties. He was not exactly wounded in the army, but suffered a broken nose (soup bowl) (a couple of fellows were fighting over a bowl of soup, and it hit him in the nose. - he recalled it himself.) A dislocated shoulder, which was a near thing (I never saw him throw anything overhand, he could not raise his arm above shoulder level (He was invalidated out of the service in 1916 with stomach ulcers. Medical and living conditions in World War I were very poor compared to World War II, and since then.

He worked a couple of years at the home for incurables - now called Manitoba School in Portage, and then started again with Manitoba Telephone System, and worked at his trade as a wire chief at the Portage Exchange until he retired. <Note that he never had a phone until he retired>
