I would like to ask for your help.

I would like to see more about a John Montgomery Sr.,
whom was purchaseing lands in Burke County in or before

His sons would have been Hamilton, Michael, John Jr., James, William, and Robert Montgomery.

Hamilton and his sister Margaret Montgomery were noted
as Bond holders in October 1782 on the Estate of John Jr.
John Sr. was mentioned as Adminstrator.

Between 1782 and 1792 Hamilton had moved to Pendleton District of South Carolina where he was on a list as
Petit Juror.

By 1799, Hamilton Montgomery and Robert were in Jackson
County, Georgia.

In 1793, Hamilton Montgomery and Robert Montgomery were
both living in northern Georgia as a Sheriff from Burke County, North Carolina had tracked them there and recovered some over-due monies from a Burke County resident.

James Montgomery was married to Sarah Varner/Verner and are
found in Pendleton District of South Carolina.

Robert Montgomery died in Amite County, Mississippi.

Hamilton Montgomery dies in Phillips County, Arkansas

Sons; Michael and John Jr. are said to have died early in life, as we see the Estate of John Jr. date 1782, but he was also of the age to purchase lands by 1778 as seen on some land records that are found on-line. The name of
Mickell Montgomery is also found on sam pages of these
abstracted land records, so he would ahve also been of age by 1778,making both of them born by 1757 or before.

So, as you can see, I do need some help here.

What can be found about the land records of this time
When did they sell out and move?

I would also like to know more about the Thomas Montgomery whom was also living in Burke County as early as 1778.
His wife was named Bridgett Montgomery.

Bridgett Wright Montgomery and her husband Thomas Montgomery first appear in Amherst County, Virginia in 1761 when they purchase lands from William Wright on
Davis Creek branch of Rockfish River.
Thomas and Bridgett Montgomery convey 60 acres of this land to their "most dutiful son" Robert Montgomery in the
year of 1768.
Robert Montgomery and Esther his wife, of Burke County sell this 60 acres of land located in Amherst County in 1781.
It is my belief that this family is the same that John Montgomery comes from, he was married to Sarah Moore?

Sure would like to know more about them

Can any one help from the Burke County area?

All for now
