We know that John Logan was Rutherford County’s Treasurer of Public Buildings from as early as 1822. There are several Google Books references to this fact as well as references in an earlier receipt called Jail Tax Receipt January 27, 1822 and the receipt Robert McAfee Receipt for putting steps to the Court House December 14, 1822. It appears that John Logan was still in this role through at least 1835.
