Benedict E. Montgomery was the son of Charles Montgomery and Mary Ann Elder, born in Charles County, Maryland, October 16, 1792.  He came to Washington County, Kentucky, with his family about 1795.  Bianna Wight was also born in Maryland, March 14, 1795, to William Wight and Rebecca Blandford.  Yesterday I posted their marriage bond dated September 2, 1817.  Together they had fourteen children:  Elizabeth Jane, Rosella, Isabella Catherine, James William, Mary Lettie, Julia Ann, Margaret Ellen, Martha Frances, Charles Thomas, Hetty Ann, Richard, Susan Mary, Emily Polin and Ann Catherine Montgomery.  Benedict died at the age of 80 October 22, 1872.  Bianna died September 14, 1885 at the age of 90.  They are buried in St. Rose Catholic Church Cemetery.

Benedict was an elder brother to my 3rd great-grandfather William Peter Montgomery.
