     GEORGE LOGG, who is a native of Scotia's rugged hills, and filled with the indomitable spirit of that leading race of people, now lives three miles west from Baird, where he has a nice large estate and where he devotes himself to general farming and stock raising.  June 24, 1850 marks the date of his birth and his parents were John and Jennie (Jemison) Logg, both natives of Scotland.  He was educated in the public schools of his native country and there grew to manhood, coming to Canada in 1872.  In a short time he returned to Scotland, where he remained until 1875.  In that year, he came to the United States, settling in the mining districts of Colorado and embarking in the mining industry until 1888.  That was the year in which he came to Douglas county, settling his family in Waterville to school the children, while he took a pre-emption and timber culture, where he now resides.  After improving the claims in good shape, he brought his family in 1890 to the new home and then located his homestead.  He built a nice large two story house and made other improvements commensurate therewith and since that time has steadily gone forward in the way of the agriculturist, gaining a good success as is proper and meet to his industry and painstaking care.
     Mr. Logg has one brother, John, and one sister, Mrs. Jennie Lloyd.  On December 25, 1882, at Georgetown, Colorado, occurred the marriage of George Logg and Mrs. Emilie, daughter of Johannes and Ingrie K. (Nilson) Peterson, natives of Sweden.  Mrs. Logg was born in Sweden also, the date being March 18, 1858.  She has the following named brothers and sister, Nels P., John E., Karl G., living in Sweden; Frans, Enoch and Theodore, living in Colorado and Mrs. Amanda Solomon, living in Sweden.  The children born to Mr. and Mrs. Logg are named as follows, William J., George E., Ernest M., Clarence A., David G., Charles P. and Frank S.
     Our subject and his wife are adherents of the Presbyterian church and are known as very substantial and thrifty people.
