Montgomery Family in Mississippi

Surnames: Montgomery
I am looking for the ancestors of Peter H. Montgomery. According to his death certificate and his military records he was born July 29, 1834 in Lawrence Co., TN. The census records of later years indicate that his father was born in Tennessee and that his mother was born in Georgia; however, there is also an indication that his mother was born in North Carolina and Tennesse. I believe that his she is listed in the 1860 Greene County Mo Census with Thomas Montgomery. She is listed as E. Montgomery.

Peter married Catherine McBee in Polk Co., MO on November 5, 1857. Peter moved to Newton Co., MO in the mid 1860's
where his family still lives today.

The following family sheet is not verified but was constructed from information that seems to fit. If anyone can add to or correct anything, I would appreciate it. Use this information as a starting point unless you can verify with official documents.

==========================================================
Thomas Montgomery, born 1790-1800, died about 1840 in Lawrence Co., Tn.

sp. Elizabeth ?, born about 1790, I believe she died in Green County, Missouri. She is in the 1860 Greene County Census.
(see below)

Children:

1. David J. Montgomery, born 1815-1820 married Martha McHughs Aug 23, 1840 in Lawrence Co., TN

2. William C. Montgomery, born 1815-1820, married Susannah Cook Sep 26, 1839 in Lawrence Co., TN (Lived in Polk

3. Matilda Montgomery, born 1815-1820, married Daniel Green on Sep 20, 1832 in Lawrence Co., TN.

4. James C. Montgomery, born 1820-1825, married Mary Hefley on Jan 14, 1841 in Lawrence Co., TN.

As you can see the information that I have shows that there was a female in the Thomas & Elizabeth Montgomery family. I have another person in this spot; however, the individual I have in this spot is only based on the fact that she was a Montgomery and was married in Lawrence County, TN.

Any information on this family would be appreciated.
