Obituaries From the Genealogical files of
Harry H. Wagner

The purpose of this Web-Site is to display the obituaries for genealogical research of the people that are buried at Logan Cemetery. When obituaries were not available, I tried to write a small biography for that person. Logan Cemetery is a small historical cemetery located about one mile north of Winslow, Nebraska and 3/4 of a mile east of US highway 77. It is located in the NW1/4 of Section 11, Township 19, Range 8 of Hooper Township, Dodge county, Nebraska.

In 1864 George Wagner Sr., my great-great-grandfather, donated 2 acres of his land to be used for the cemetery. He died in 1865 and is the first person to be buried there. In pioneer times this was one of the few cemeteries available in this area. Some pioneers were buried on their farms and many of those gravesites are now lost and forgotten. Logan Cemetery is also known as Logan Valley Cemetery, however the cemetery overlooks both the Elkhorn River valley and the Logan Creek valley.

Logan Cemetery is still in use and visitors are welcome. The cemetery is well maintained and an annual cleanup is conducted by volunteers. Visitors will be rewarded with a terrific view of the Elkhorn River valley and the Logan Creek valley. A gazebo, donated by the Edmund Wagner family, is located near the center of the cemetery. A printed copy of the obituaries is kept in the gazebo.

The Logan Cemetery survey made by Clarabelle Mares and Kathrine Petersen on June 15, 1975 was a very valuable aid in assembling the obituaries and biographies for the people buried here. Thanks to them for their survey. Thanks also to the Hooper-Scribner Rustler- Sentinel for their permission to use their published obituaries. Much of the pre-emigration information from Germany for the Wagner and Uehling families came from research material provided by Steven Pueppke. The information on the Jacob Edelman family was furnished by Diane Bay Gilligan. Many of the obituaries for the more recent burials was provided by Betty McMaster. So, thanks also to Steven, Diane and Betty.

For many of the people buried here I could find little or no information. If you have information (especially obituaries) that is not shown here, please share it with me so that I can include it in a future version of this Web-Site.

Four pairs of my great-great grandparents are buried in this cemetery; George & Christiane Wagner; George & Christena Weigle; Henry & Katharina Schwab and John (Johannes) & Cordula (Elise) Uehling.

The Logan Cemetery is located in a rural area of Dodge county, Nebraska known as Logan Creek or Logan Mills.
