My name is Regina Montgomery. I am doing research on the Montgomery family. Do you have access to probate records or death certificates on microfiche for Jack and Hester Montgomery?
According to the 1880 Federal Census Jack and Hester Montgomery settled in Precinct 1, Wood County, with their seven children. Jack owned his farm.
I believe Jack died between 1900 and 1910 because Hester is noted as a widow on the 1910 Federal Census. She is accounted for on the 1920 Census (age 77).
