I think it was Emil Vogl who wrote that Logy originally came from  
Since 1512 the region of Chiavenna (Cleven), Veltlin (Valtellina) and  
Bormio (Worms) were part of the "Drei Bünde", who were associated  
with the Eidgenossenschaft, but not member if it. After Napoleon the  
Drei Bünde lost these three regions. So Plurs (today Piuro) was then  
really a part of one of the associated "countries" – but not member –  
of the Eidgenossenschaft (today Switzerland).

I made some research and in 2006 it was Dr. Martin Bundi who wrote me  
that the family "Lossi / Lossio" probably came from Italy as  
protestants and lived in Plurs and then came to Poschiavo (today in  
Switzerland) where the family was first mentioned in 1581, then in  
1593, 1639 and so on.
The Lossios were important political persons in this region.

Perhaps we know really more after this congress in Plurs?
