    • Researchers had surmised that Nancy Jane Axtell died before this marriage took place. New information tends to refute this as she received the sum of $58 from her father through his will in 1855. This was four years after the birth of George and Esther's son Christian William. It is believed that he left Jane in Ohio and traveled with the children to Indiana.

  • Notes 
    • Most of this information was handed down to Joseph Jacob Loghry, the great grandson of George W. Loghry and Esther Schock from family, mainly his Aunt Sarah Loghry Eutsler, daughter of Joseph Leander.

      Aunt Sarah was born 10 years after her grandfather (George W. Loghry) died and she was born in Gravette, Arkansas. She had lived in Page County, Iowa long enough to be familiar with the area. She drew a map of the area on the back of a calendar, showing all of the places where the kinfolks lived. When Joseph Jacob Loghry later went to Page County, he found a school map in the library at Clarinda that still had many of the names on it in 1906. There are not many public documents about his life. According to his death certificate he was 74 years 5 months 21 days old when he died August 29, 1886. The census of 1850 shows him to be 36 years old. He could neither read nor write. He signed with an "X."

      Jackson's history of Steuben County, New York mentions him by name only and then sans "no record." Joseph Leander Loghry named him in his will in 1830 to receive five dollars. One other account simply says he went west. Sparkle Albert Loghry, a grandson of George Edward said that his father George W. told him that he left New York with two of his brothers but they got separated (probably by their marriages) and he never saw them again. The 1840 census for Fountain County, Indiana shows the George Loghry family consisting of father, mother, one daughter, born in Ohio. He married again by 1850, still in Indiana. He must have been in Indiana for at least 14 years. In 1854 his son Joseph was born in Illinois.

      Came to Page County in wagon train in 1868. Bought 44 acres in Page County on February 26, 1867, later adding on to this land three miles north of Hepburn. George was 17 when his mother died and 18 at the time of his father's death. Because he didn't have an education there were numerous spelling of the name, due to errors of others.
