James Johnston Logan was the manager of International Ice and Cold Storage Company (later called Vancouver Ice and Cold Storage Company). He lived at 1900 Robson Street from 1899 to 1903 and at 1898 Robson Street in 1910.

 

Family Background and Early Life

James Johnston Logan was born in Maitland, Nova Scotia on March 24, 1858. His parents were Robert Logan (1815–1887) and Nancy O’Brien (1819–1891).

In 1872, James began his sailing career, which lasted until 1893. From 1883 to 1893, he was the master of a steamship.

On February 20, 1890, at Clarksboro, New Jersey, James married Sarah Frances Atkins, who was born in Nova Scotia on October 15, 1863. (Clarksboro is just south of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.) Sarah’s parents were John Milner Atkins (1826-1895) and Mary Lydiard Yuill (1836-1903). (Sarah’s brother was John Milner Atkins, Jr., who lived at 1898 Robson Street from 1900 to 1938. Further information appears on the page for John Milner Atkins.)

John Milner Atkins, Senior died in Vancouver on February 12, 1895.

The Chilliwack Progress, February 13, 1895, page 2, column 3.

Mary Atkins died in Vancouver on January 10, 1903.

Vancouver Daily World, January 12, 1903, page 5, columns 6-7.

Vancouver Daily World, January 12, 1903, page 5, columns 6-7.

At the time of the 1891 Canada census, James was living in Acadia Mines East in Nova Scotia. (Although the census information is not clear, it appears that “S.F. Logan” was living in the same household. This person may be Sarah Frances Logan; she was 27 years old (born about 1863 or 1864). The census listed this person as a widow, but that information may not be accurate.)

 

Arrival in Vancouver

James and Sarah arrived in Vancouver in 1893. James first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1895. He was living on Eighth Avenue in Vancouver’s Fairview district.

He was born in Quebec where he received a mercantile education and for years was in business there. When still young he removed to Nova Scotia, where he married Miss Mary Yuill, of Truro. Some years ago he came to Vancouver, where he has since resided. Mrs. Atkins and several of his children survive him, all of whom live in the Province. Three sons, Thos. E., R.O., and James are in business in this City and J. Milner is in Nanaimo. The eldest daughter is Mrs. J.A. Logan of Chilliwack. The other two are Mrs. Capt.

The funeral will take place on Thursday at 2 p.m. from the residence of Cap. Logan.”
