    Biography
    • JOE A. LOGAN. We are pleased to give a short sketch of the popular and talented editor of the Miltonian. This is one of the best weekly papers of the Seventeenth Congressional District; it was established in 1816 as a strong Whig paper by Gen. Henry Frick. The first number was issued September 21, 1816, and the paper has continued since under the same name. Since Fremont's campaign it has advocated the principles of the Republican party and has been owned and published by the following persons: Gen. Henry Frick; Robert Frick; Robbins & Brown; L. H. Funk; Morton & Mervine, with whom F. Bound was later associated; P. L. Hackenberg; L. B. Housel; and in 1880 Strine & Logan.

      Our subject succeeded his partner in 1882. The paper has heen enlarged and its circulation has been increased to 1,200. It is a fact worthy of special mention that the office and printing establishment has always been located within half a square of the present location.

      Joe A. Logan, our subject, was born in Milton, Pa., January 12, 1846, and is a son of Samuel and Rose (Sties) Logan. The former was born in Philadelphia and there married his wife, who was a native of Germany. They settled in Wilkes Barre, but in 1840 removed to Milton.

      Our subject attended Milton Academy until he was fifteen years of age, when he enlisted in Company E, 131st Reg., Pa. Vol. Inf., and later in Company E, 51st Reg., Pa. Vol. Inf., and served until the close of the war. He is a past commander of Henry Wilson Post, G. A. R.; and is a member of Milton Lodge, F. & A. M. He is a stockholder in the Milton Trust Company, the Milton Safe Deposit Company and the Milton Driving Park & Fair Association. He has taken such an active interest in the general improvement of his native town that he has gained much prominence in the community. Since 1880 he has devoted most of his time to his paper and his fellow citizens show their appreciation of his efforts by subscribing liberally. The year 1882 marked an interesting event in his history, i. e., the celebration of his marriage with Lulu Tilden, a daughter of Enos and Isabella Tilden, who were natives of Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, respectively. Our subject and wife are the happy parents of three chiltlren : Bolton, Inez, and Joe A., Jr. Mr. Logan was postmaster under President Arthur and has served as a member of the town council.
