Name of creator
Alexander Loggie, son of Alexander and Helen (Murray) Loggie, was born in Alnwick parish, Northumberland County, New Brunswick, on 26 November 1813. He married Catherine Morrison in 1838, and they had three sons and five daughters, including Donald, Catherine, Margaret and Jessie.
Involved in both the lumbering and fish processing industries, Alexander Loggie was in partnership with his cousin John Anderson and, for a short time, with another cousin George Loggie in the firm of Loggie & Anderson. The business was established in the early 1850s and operated until John Anderson's death in 1874. In that year it was split into two firms: A. & D. Loggie and J., W. and J. Anderson.
A. & D. Loggie owned a lobster canning factory at Tracadie, was one of the principal shippers of Miramichi smelts, operated as general and lumber merchants and conducted woods operations on the Burnt Church and Tabusintac rivers. Alexander Loggie died at Burnt Church on 29 April 1897 and was succeeded as head of the firm by his son Donald Loggie. Following Donald's death in 1918, his son Leonard took over the business. When Leonard died in 1944, there was no family member to take over the business, so it ceased operation.
