Them Medfords & other mountain folk

This blog is dedicated to my ancestors, to the ancestors of my wife, and to the people that interacted with them. The blog is currently focusing on a series called the Logan Project.

The Logan Project

I possess a box of 170 documents passed down 6 generations in the Logan family that originate from John Logan (1775-1841) of Rutherford County, NC. These documents are mainly receipts that show the various business and legal dealings of many different families from Rutherford County, NC. I will be posting these documents on this blog in chronological order. The scanned images of these documents are the copyright of Jonathan Medford. Do not redistribute these documents for the purpose of commercial gain without his expressed written permission.

My freshmen year at East Carolina University I took a class called Marriage and Family Relations that required me to research my family history and well…the rest is history.  I’ve been addicted ever since.  I hope that through this blog I will inspire other people, young and old, to take an interest in their family’s history and preserve information that future generations can cherish.

I own a successful marketing firm in Wilmington, NC called Inspire and a SaaS company called College Inbound.  My dream job is to work full-time as a professional genealogist.
