Henry Dorman Hello! I can add info about Henry's 2nd wife, Margaret Montgomery (Maggie).Born Dec 18, 1854, and died 13 Jan 1936 in Apalachicola, FL, where she was born. She resided in MA in 1900 with Henry and his daughter from his first marriage, Elena Cora Dorman and her husband Walter Benson. Maggie Montgomery's parents were Peter Montgomery and Mary Catherine McNulty, both born in Ireland. I don't know how Maggie met Henry and ended up in MA.In 1885 she was a household servant in Pensacola, FL.I am not related to Maggie. Her family married into my husband's line in Florida. Thank you for transcribing records! C. Murat Added by Remember on Jun 27, 2012 11:27 PM
I'd be looking for other IRE-born Montgomery families using the name Samuel/Peter.
The Tithe Applotment Books covered 1823-1837.They give a good look at where people were living in that timeframe. It does not include urban areas ... so no Montgomerys in Galway?

1850 - possibility ignoring the date of birth .. same county -- though a see an ancestry tree that has him arriving in 1853, based on a passenger list (which I think you have to take with a grain of salt).

--The Apalachicola (Fla.) Times says: ‘ On Wednesday last, the 2d inst., a sad casualty occurred in this place, resulting in the death of Mr. Peter Montgomery. It seems that a distress warrant had been served on Mr. H. D. Darden, by Edward Carpenter, Coroner, and by virtue of his office, acting Sheriff of the county in the absence of the Sheriff; and that he (Carpenter) and Montgomery, bailiff, entered the premises of Mr. Darden, and while there some difficulty occurring between Mr. Darden and the officers, the result was the shooting and killing of Montgomery by Darden. An examination was had before the committing Magistrates, which resulted in the requirement of ball on the part of the defendant in the sum of $4,000, to appear before the next term of the Circuit Court.
