      From Dictionary of Miramichi Biography:

      Loggie, Alexander, fish processing and lumber company head; b. Alnwick parish, 26 Nov 1813, s/o Alexander Loggie and Helen Murray; m. Catherine Morrison; d. Burnt Church, 29 Apr 1897.

      Alexander Loggie was a partner of his cousin John Anderson, and of a short time of his cousin George Loggie, father of William S. Loggie, in the firm of Loggie & Anderson, which was in business from the early 1850's until Anderson's death in 1874. It was then split into two firms: A. & D. Loggie, of which the partners were Alexander Loggie and his son Donald, and J., W., & J. Anderson, of which the partners were the three sons of John Anderson.

      A. & D. Loggie owned a lobster canning factory at Big Tracadie Beach at which they canned 60,000 pounds of lobster during the 1876 season. They had a fleet of "codfish schooners," and they dried cod at Neguac and Burnt Church for the overseas market. In 1877 a large part of their business was in fresh salmon sales. In 1879 they were one of the principal shippers of smelts having responsible for about fifteen percent of the Miramichi catch. They were also general and lumber merchants and conducted woods operation son the Burnt Church and Tabusintac rivers.

      Loggie was a respected businessman, who was "distinguished for his geniality no less than for his integrity." He and wife, Catherine Morrison, had three sons and five daughters. Following his death, A. & D. Loggie was headed by their son Donald Loggie, who lived until 1918. It was then taken over by Donald's son Leonard Loggie. When he died in 1944 there was no family member to continue the business, and it thus came to an end, roughly ninety years after it had been begun.
