-> Samuel Montgomery (ABOUT 1761 - AFTER 1830 ; of NC and TN)

I made major updates to this website August 28, 2005 after my discovery of firm links between Samuel Montgomery and his father, John. My update of October 28, 2008 included a major review of DNA analysis. A significant step, discovering that the wife of John was named Isabell, caused the update of December 11, 2008. The update of September 2, 2014 ties a knot on my pursuit of a DNA connection.
