Surnames: Montgomery Myers Marsh Boyle
I am connected to Alexander & Juda (Myers) Montgomery through their daughter Sarah Louise. She married a William Marsh and their d Rebecca Ann Marsh m my grgrgrandfather John James William Boyle of Dawn Mills Kent County ON Canada on the 5th March 1843.
I am researching the Boyle family and trying to discover where John's grandfather William Boyle d 1813 in Chatham and his son James b abt 1779 came from. I have not been able to clarify William's U.E.L.status yet and simply have the following source: from Cathy Knight http://boards.ancestry.com Date: 19 Oct 2006 10:38 AM GMT In Reply to: William Boyle d 23 Feb 1816 in Amherstburg ON Canada from Publication: In The Valley of the Lower Thames
Appendix A. page 338 Howard – Lot 13 – William Boyle. No Improv’t. Lives in second township
Appendix B. page 341 Chatham – Lot 11. William Boyle, 1802, loyalist, came to Detroit in 1785.
Appendix B. page 342 Howard – Lot 13. William Boyle, 1789 (John Julien in 1811), see lot 11,
Chatham Surrogate Court Records - Western District BOYLE, William, administration of estate given to eldest son James Boyle: 1816 File # 127
From this information I now know that William died in 1813 in Chatham and his eldest son was my James. I am now trying to find out where Wm Boyle came from. Some records say James was born in 1779 River Raisin Michigan and another suggests County Antrim Ireland but no sources were provided. Did the Marsh and Boyle names appear in any Montgomery research? Looking for leads and will highly appreciate any information.

Surnames: Montgomery, Higgins, Miller
I am also descended from Alexander Montgomery and Juda Myers. Our family information is that our branch is through their son John A. Montgomery and spouse unknown. John A. and spouse had a son named John Willison(Willson?) Montgomery who married Marie Higgins(she was from England). They migrated south to the U. S. and eventually landed in Texas. They had six sons-Richard, Alfred, Edwin, John, George, and William Archibald from whom I am descended. Thanks to the work of my Mother's cousin Roger Montgomery (who is now deceased) we have a wonderful record of the family line.
William Archibald Montgomery married Isadore Francis Miller and they had 6 children. My grandfather, George Alfred Montgomery was one of those children.
I live in Texas .

The story of Montgomery Loyalists was told in detail by Dr. William R. Marsh, one of Sarah's descendants, in a book he published in 1990. His data was based on serious research in North Ireland, Connecticut, New York State, New Brunswick, and York Town, which became Toronto, Ontario. Dr. William Marsh served as a Board member of the New England Historical and Genealogical Society and is respected for his solid research over many years. Bill Marsh lives in Grand View, NE. Searching for family members who remained in New Brunswick.

I'm a descendant of Alexander & Juda(h), too & live in Louisiana. I had no idea we were Scotch-Irish til now. It's a bit of an emabarrassment since my mom's side of the family are Catholic from the West of Ireland & my daddy's mostly Highland Scotch-or so we thought-& all a bit down on the Scotch Irish.Just proves if you go back far enough there are all sorts & kinds of ancestors.
I see Juda spelled different ways-what kind of a girl's name is "Juda???"
