Mrs. Edith Andrews Logan, 89, wife of the late Major John A. Logan Jr. and daughter-in-law of General John A. Logan of Civil War fame, died Sunday at the Red Cross Terrace home of her daughter, Lady Maxwell Scott. She had been ill since 1951, when she came to Newport for the summer season and was stricken with a cerebral hemorrhage.

Mrs. Logan was born in Youngstown, Ohio, a daughter of the late Chauncey and Louisa Baldwin Andrews and was a member of one of the Connecticut families that had emigrated to Ohio in the post Civil War era and settled in the Western Reserve.

She was active in business for many years, being President of an Ohio firm that operated limestone quarries. In 1912 she moved to Paris and lived with Lady Maxwell Scott there until her return to this country in 1937, when she made her home in New York.

Her early days were spent at Calumet Place in Washington which the nation gave to General Logan for his distinguished service in the Civil War. It was Logan who promulgated the first declaration for observing Memorial Day honoring Union dead of the Civil War.

Mrs. Logan's husband, who won the Congressional Medal of Honor in the Cuban campaign, was killed in the Philippine Insurrection in 1899. Besides Lady Maxwell Scott, Mrs. Logan leaves two other children, John A. Logan of Tucson, Arizona and Mrs. Dewees W. Dilworth of Lakeville, Connecticut; a sister, Mrs. Leslie Bruce of Greenwich, Connecticut and seven grandchildren.

Burial will be in the Logan mausoleum in Youngstown.
