Correction to Wathen Anthology
Posted by: Carolyn Collins (ID *****8448) Date: November 04, 2002 at 13:18:43

It has come to my attention that there is a bad mistake in "Wathen Anthology", p. 34.

Clotilda Wathen, b. 3 Nov. 1795 in Randolph Co., Va., to Raphael and Margaret Modesta (Coomes) Wathen, married Thomas Francis Montgomery 16 Jan. 1815 in Nelson co., Ky. (Nelson Co. Marriage Bonds), d. 12 May 1860 in Knottsville, Daviess Co. (birth and death dates from tombstone reading), buried at St. Lawrence Cemetery.

The children given on p. 34 as children of Clotilda and Thomas are in reality Clotilda's half siblings, children of Margaret Modestes and her second husband, Zachariah Aud.

Clotilda and Thomas were the parents of:
Pius M. Montgomery, b. 1816, d. San Jose, Santa Clara Co., Calif unknown date, m. Harriett E. Warren
Ausin Montgomery, m. 1847 Sarah Rager, then m. Rose Carrico
Rebecca Montgomery, m. Henry Buckman Wathen 24 Nov. 1840 (St. Lawrence Church records), d. 6 March 1900
Jane Frances Montgomery, b. 28 Nov. 1822, d. 3 Oct. 1862 Hardin Co., m. ca. 1850 Alfred A. Warren
Zachariah Montgomery, 6 March 1825-3 Sept. 1900 Calif., m. Helen Frances Graham
John Thomas Montgomery, 1827-July 1828
Margaret Modestes Montgomery, 15 June 1829-12 Jan. 1914, m. 11 Jan. 1848 Joseph Head (St. Lawrence church records)
Athanatius Montgomery, 5 Aug. 1831, m. 5 April 1853 Mary L. Clements
Benedict Joseph Montgomery, 10 Jan. 1834-
Appolonia Montgomery, 25 Aug. 1836, m. 25 March 1855 Charlds O. Clements
Raphael Lullas Montgomery, 16 Oct. 1840, m. 4 Oct. 1864 Mary Susan Coomes

I'm sorry for the confusion........
