An alternative path was to look for Samuel's father in 1790. Guessing the first name of John, which would be true if Samuel followed Scotch-Irish naming convention for his own children (and turned out to be true), I searched on John Montgomery, finding 23 in all states, namely:

So I looked at the census records for our best guesses. For each head of household, there are five numbers, the first three showing respectively free males at least 16 years old, males less than 16, and free females.
These are the three numbers for each John Montgomery, 1790:
Iredell Co., NC     101
Mecklenburg Co., NC 101
Mecklenburg Co., NC 133
Rowan Co., NC       131
Chester Co., SC     131
I.e., none has a son older than 16 (as necessary if Samuel were still in the household).
