I have been in search of "a truth" about an individual
whom lived on Fishing Creek.
His name was James Montgomery.
This James Montgomery is whom had the land application
dated 3 May 1736 for 30 acres of Vacant Land.
The Penn Land Proprietors wrote out this application
which includes the words, this 30 acres has been cleared
up to 5 years before, and adjoined James Montgomery's
This Document clears up what has long been published as
the same James Montgomery whom went to Catawba Creek in
Augusta County, Virginia.
If one does use this Document and what it tells, then it
should be said that the James Montgomery whom lived on
his lands near Fishing Creek, did live here as of 1730,
and perhaps even before.
This also leads me for another "truth" to be found about
the "whom" is buried at Chestnut Level Cemetery.
I can find a list on-line that tells of a Joshua Montgomery
whom is found buried at Chestnut Level in 1744 aged 65 year
I am told that the stone has the name of John Montgomery
chiseled on it. I am also told that it is not that clear.
I believe that the person whom was buried in Chestnut
Level Cemetery in 1744 was none other than this James
I base this on the land records of James Montgomery of
I base this on the people whom surrounded this James
Montgomery as he lived in Pennsylvania.
In 1725, James Mongomery is found near Walter Crocket,
Walter Denny, James Patterson and others.
In 1726, James Montgomery is found next to Widow Crogett,
near Walter Denny, James Patterson and others.
I am told this is not the same James Patterson whom was
a brother-in-law of this James Montgomery.
I think this, if he was not the brother-in-law then this
James Patterson is still the one found on the banks of the
Susquehanna River and known as "indian trader" with son
named James Patterson.
This still lends credence to the fact that this James
Montgomery of 1725 and 1726 was the same whom is found on
the Land Records of the Penn Land Proprietary in 1736 and
as early as 1730 on adjoining lands.
Walter Denny left his LW&T dated 1752.
William Montgomery was Witness to this LW&T.
This William Montgomery applied for a Warrant/Grant from
the Penn Land Proprietary in 1743. His eldest son was named
James Montgomery. This Wiliam Montgomery was also father of
David Montgomery born about 1736.
This William Montgomery also owned lands that adjoined the
lands of Thomas Montgomery, James Patterson, James Ramsey,
William Whiteside and others.
I ask for your help on this matter, as it does need a
