I am seeking information on the parentage of Joseph Montgomery and Charlotte Arter. This couple was married in Botetourt County on April 21, 1837. Both appear to have been born around 1815 in Virginia. Both appear to have had fathers from Ireland and mothers from Virginia.
The first 4 or 5 children of this family were born in Botetourt. They were: Mary, born circa. 1838; Elizabeth, born circa. 1840; Minerva R., born Feb. 1842; Martha Francis, born Apr. 1845; and James Madison, born Aug. 1848 or 49 (James may have been born in Rockbridge Co.)
This family moved prior to 1850 to Cabell Co. then on to Ky. for a brief time, then to Lawrence and finally Jackson Counties in Ohio.
I strongly suspect links to the families of Samuel and Lucy Montgomery of Botetourt Co. and of Hugh and Sarah Montgomery of (both) Botetourt and Rockbrigde Counties.
Thank you for your time.
