WILLIAM MONTGOMERY


William MONTGOMERY3(John2John1) was born 1772 in Lancaster County, South Carolina and died 1835 in probably Texas. As a young man, William moved to Blount County, Tennessee, USA where he married Mary "Polly" James, the daughter of Jesse James and an aunt to the famous outlaws, Frank and Jesse James.  William and Polly made their home on a farm located next to the farm of Elizabeth Paxton Houston, the mother of Sam Houston on Baker's Creek a few miles south of Maryville until he moved in the summer of 1816 into northern Alabama.  Six years later, in 1822 William arrived in Texas with all his family with the exception of one son, Andrew who had arrived earlier.  They settled on the Red River at Pecan Point where his wife, Polly was killed by the Indians that same year.
