Dear All:

Please start a separate sub-thread under this
thread ( just do a reply) for each Clan ancestor.

The thread on this board (and the mailing list) is intended for
comments, hints on how to locate, and discussions
on those distant ancestors ( sometimes brick walls) that are
very hard to locate. Anyone with knowledge of the
Clan Ancestors or searching for ancestors and especially
the Clan Genealogist are especially encouraged to post
their finding on the Clan ancestors.

Please do not use this board for merely looking for
recent descendants. That function is better in the
Surname message boards and mailing lists.

Use the standard procedure in the subject header of
inserting your family ancestor information in the following format
NAME > location > dates

Best Wishes and Happy Hunting to All

I've hit the proverbial 'brick wall' with my great great great great grandfather Isaac Montgomery. Rumor has it that he arrived in Maryland circa 1775 (age of 5 or so). The only definite information is his marriage to Ruth Hargrove (or perhaps Hardgrove) on 1 October, 1798 in Harford County, Maryland.

Isaac and Ruth eventually settled in Chippewa Township, Wayne County, Ohio.

Children were

John 1799
William 1800
Isaac 1802
Richard 1804
Thomas 1808
Polly 1809
George 1814

All of the children migrated to Sullivan County, Missouri except for George.

I'd appreciate any leads on Isaac's pedigree.
