History

Logan is the county seat of Cache County, Utah and the central community of Cache Valley which extends into south-eastern Idaho. The Native American population, made mostly of bands of Shoshone, have lived in the region since prehistory. The first Europeans in the area were early trappers such as Peter Skene Ogden and Jim Bridger who explored the Logan River and surrounding regions as early as 1825.[2]

The first permanent European settlers entered Cache Valley on July 20, 1855. These early settlers were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (or Mormons) and sent by Brigham Young. The LDS faith is the predominant religion to this day. Logan was first settled in April 1859 and named after the Logan River that flows through the city.[3]

City founders, rooted in the LDS faith, are responsible for two of the great architectural landmarks in Logan: the Logan LDS Temple and the Logan Tabernacle. Logan is also the home of Utah State University, a land-grant university founded in 1888. Old Main, another architectural landmark in Logan, is perhaps the best known structure on the university campus.

The city celebrated its sesquicentennial in 2009. In 2010 the population totaled over 48,000, according to the census of that year.

Historical Overview

The recording of land on a local level began in 1885. Records back to that year are available by contacting the Cache County Recorder. Records before 1885 should have been recorded in a US federal land office; however, there was no federal land office in Utah until 1869. Records from about 1869 to 1885 and possibly earlier are housed in the National Archives, the closest branch of which is in Denver, Colorado.

Vital Records

While white permanent settlers began to enter Cache Valley in 1856, Logan was founded in 1859 and incorporated in 1866. Vital records from that time period until public records were kept may be found in alternative sources: newspapers, church records, family records, cemetery records, etc.

Logan Births and Deaths

Reliable birth and death records in Logan begin in 1898. In that year the Cache County Clerk began to keep a vital record register or ledger. This practice continued until 1905 when a state-wide registration of both births and deaths began.

Logan Marriages

Marriage was seen as a religious ordinance early in the history of Cache County. With the passage of the Edmund’s-Tucker Act, federal regulators outlawed polygamy, a common practice among pioneer members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). The act also mandated a territorial registration of marriages which began in 1887.

Earlier records of LDS marriages for persons living in Logan may exist in church temple registers. These registers are held in the Church History Library.
