Michael or Montgomery Greer, b. 1876 TN

Posted: 1137255234000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Greer, Grier, Grear, Worthington
Michael/Montgomery/Mike/Mont Greer used these four first names seemingly at random. He was born in TN 25 Nov 1876. His mother supposedly died when he was born. I have no record of his father, except Mike's only living daughter thinks he went to KY and might have been a teacher. According to Mike's census information his father was likely born in MO and his mother in TN, although his father may also have been born in TN.

Mike married Minerva Ola Worthington (b. Aug. 1877, TN, d/o Polk (J.A.) and Martha Worthington) in Montgomery County, TN at Center Point Church on 22 or 23 Dec 1897. They were living in Montgomery Co., TN for the 1900 census, living in Central City, Muhlenberg Co., KY in 1910, and Port Clinton, Ottawa Co., OH in 1920.

Mike left Minnie in the early 1920's and went to Chicago. They eventually divorced, perhaps 10 years later. He had a girlfriend, likely did not marry her, and supposedly died in Chicago. He worked for New York Central Railroad at the time of his WWI draft registration.

I would appreciate any information or clues to Mike's parents, or what happened to him after he left Ohio.
