Abstract Thomas Muldrup Logan (1840-1914), a native of South Carolina, was a Confederate officer and later a lawyer and railroad executive of Richmond, Va. He married Kate Virginia Cox, daughter of James H. Cox of Chesterfield County, Va., in 1865. The antebellum papers are Cox family letters, including two from Kate Cox while at school. Papers, 1861-1865, consist of correspondence of Kate with young women and soldiers, including one who went to Bermuda by blockade runner, and a few military papers of Logan. Among the postwar papers are scattered correspondence of the Cox and Logan families and letters to Logan from business and former Confederate associates. Letters of the 1890s are from Mrs. Logan in Europe. Later papers are those of Logan's daughter, chiefly about her father's career, with letters and a biographical sketch of his friend, Charles Woodward Hutson, teacher and painter. Volumes include a diary, 1856-1860, of Kate (Cox) Logan and her memoirs of the Civil War years in Virginia, written in 1890 (later published as My Confederate Girlhood). Also included are copies of two letters, 1814, from soldiers camped near New Orleans, La., during the War of 1812.
