I am looking for information on David Logan from the Chicago area.
He was born February 1835 and was married to Edmonia (b. 1856-need maiden name).

They might be these people, years are correct, locations are not.  This Edmonia died between 1900 and 1910 census, maybe you'll strike it rich and locate a death record in Lawrence, Douglas, KS for her? No marriage record found.

In 1880, David's sister-in law Mary Taylor is living with them.  There are 2 possibilites for Edmonia Taylor in 1870 census - one living with Drake family in Lawrence township and one in a different township- that happens to have a sister of the correct age to be Mary?  Might be a place to start.  PS this region of KS was very active in abolitionists, underground railroad activity, establishing free state etc.
