This information was transcribed from a Montgomery family bible, the location of which, I do not know. It was physically located in Saline Co., KS in the 60s. So, essentially it is family tradition which I'd love to prove, but have been unable to. The following is a copy of a query I placed on the Montgomery GenForum and all I have on my maternal grandfather's side. This was a combination of oral history and the family bible transcription:
"Thomas William MONTGOMERY, b.1818, Edinburgh, Scotland, d.1908, Dana, LaSalle Co., IL and Mary FARLOW, b. 9/24/1821, Tyrone, Ireland, d. 1905, Dana, LaSalle Co., IL were married on 7/24/1844 in Glasgow, Scotland. They came to Philadelphia in 1845. Moved to Peoria Co.,IL in 1855. Moved to Dana, IL in 1867 and
remained there. They had 10 children, only 3 lived to adulthood;
William Thomas MONTGOMERY b. 1850 d. ??
Edna b. 7/2/1880 d. 1952
I am interested in all branches and information. Everett Leo MONTGOMERY was my grandfather. He married Florence Josephine PETERSON on 12/18/1918, Saline Co. KS. Thanks for any help."
