From the notes of David A. Stumpf of Evanston, Illinois: 

Samuel Loggins [brother to William] was born about 1776 in North Carolina, His family were among the Holston settlers. He married Martha (last name probably Scott) in about 1810. She was born about 1795 in Tennessee. He served in the War of 1812 from his enlistment on January 24, 1814 until May 19, 1814 under Capt. Archibald McKinney in the Calvary. He died March 18, 1826 in Wayne County, Tennessee. He left behind 6 young children who were placed under the guardianship of his brother Martin by the Maury County court. Martha is found in the census records in 1830 in Wayne County and in 1840 and 1850 in Hardin County. In 1850 she lived next to her daughter, Jane Bivins and her large family in Hardin County.

In June 1769, Joseph Colvin 'alias Corbin' was sued by William Spiller in Augusta Co., VA for a debt contracted by Joseph in 1760-1761 while Joseph, having 'joined the Regiment,' was living in King William Co., VA in the household of William Loggins. The suit stated that Joseph Colvin had since married a widow, had several children, and had taken up residence about 6 miles below Staunton in Augusta Co., VA. [Augusta Co., VA Court Records A William "Login" also appears in these early court records from 1741 thru 1748. In 1748 and 1749, numerous suits of debt appear against William Login who did not attend court to defend himself. He may have been the William Loggin of King William Co. who brought suit in 1769 against Joseph Colvin for debts incurred in 1760-1761.
