Passport Application - Mary Taylor Logan - 1923

Mary Elizabeth (Taylor) Logan, born at Hartford on 20 July 1863, widow of Abram Winter Logan, applied for a passport to travel to Italy, Great Britain, France, Switzerland, Egypt, Belgium, Germany, Holland, Greece, Constantinople, Japan, China, India, Ceylon, Manila, and Strait Settlement (now a part of Malaysia).

Mary's husband, Abram, was born in Canada 7 October 1835 and died in Ohio County 17 March 1922. They were married in 1913. Note the 28 year age difference between Abram and Mary. Abram had previously been married and had a daughter named Florence, born about 1879-1880.

Mary was the daughter of Dr. Henry Pirtle Taylor and Sarah "Sally" Mildred (May) Davis. She was the granddaughter of the famous Harrison Taylor, and it was she that was responsible for the wonderful book about Ohio County titled "Ohio County, Kentucky, in the Olden Days" that was first published in 1926. The introduction to that book notes that Mary's parents died when she was a small child and that she was raised by her grandfather. Mary died 2 July 1941. She is buried in Rosehill Elmwood Cemetery in Owensboro.
