Glimpses of Wythe Co. Va.

Glimpses of Wythe Co. Va. Vol. 2
compiled by Mary B. Kegley pg 63
(bio written by Agnes Graham Sanders Riley)

Borrowed from online source:
Our Family...from Roots to Nuts
********************************

"James and Ann Montgomery with their six sons and one daughter and James' sister Catherine Calhoun with her husband."
"came to Augusta County, Va by way of Lancaster Co. Pa. where they had arrived about 1733."
"however by 1752 John Montgomery was living in the area of Augusta that was eventually to become Wythe Co."
************************************************

I will say that for the most part, these are undocumented.

Paragraph 2 is the only exception as proven by the 1795 Depositions taken in Wythe county for James Montgomery Jr. and his brother Joseph Montgomery.
It is in these two depositions where it is said that this family came to America in 1733.
*******************************

I will ask, how does Riley know that James had six sons and one daughter? Can some one show me this documentation?

I will ask, how does Riley know that Catherine was the sister of James Montgomery? Can someone show me this documentation?

I will ask, how does Riley know that John Montgomery found in the southern most area of Augusta Co. in 1752 was the son of this James Montgomery? Can this Documentation also be proven?
**********
Why so many implications with out any documentation?

Why are your assumptions any better than anyone else's?

All Best
