The Loggie Name in Muirkirk

from George L Gray of Massachusets (November 2014)
Many generations of my Loggie family came from Muirkirk.  My grandfather James Loggie was born there in 1888, married in 1911 and emigrated in 1928 to America.  His parents were John Loggie and Grace Bryden Ferguson, both born in Muirkirk.  John was born in 1866, married there in 1888 and died in Rigside.  John’s father James was born in Muirkirk in 1843, married Helen Kennedy Swann in 1864 and he died there in 1915.  Each family had many children born in Muirkirk.  Obviously, Muirkirk features very proudly in my heritage.
