Note by John Paul Grady, a Montgomery descendant:  “This photocopy is of the family record of Hugh Montgomery and his wife Jane.  Tradition in our family is that Jane was an Indian.  The first two children, Margaret and Jane, probably were born at Danville, Kentucky.  Hugh was a tailor at Danville at this time as proved by Mercer County records.  Hugh died in 1827 per Green County records.  David Montgomery was born in Washington County according to the 1850 census of Green County.”

  1. David and Tabitha Montgomery were my 4th great grandparents. Their daughter Margaret married Judge David T. Towles. They are also buried there also. Towles is a notable figure in Green County history.
    From Adair Co. News, 1898: (He participated in…) “The
    war with Mexico and the civil war. He has served as clerk of the Green County Court, Judge of the Green County court, and was Master Commissioner of the Green Circuit Court for the last five years. He was elected by a safe majority at the last election for County Court Judge over a very popular nominee for the republican party.”
