Birth: Oct. 27, 1805
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Aug. 4, 1878
Shelby County
Missouri, USA

Family tradition says his middle name is Pierson (or some variation of that, most likely Pearson). After working on his line for several years now, I don't believe that was his middle name.

His wife, Nancy Varble, is a descendant of the Clifford line and her grandfather is Jacob Pearson Clifford. The names Varble, Clifford, and Pearson are passed down through her line.

Since I can find no documentation with James having a middle name at all and his wife has several Pearson connections, it is unlikely that James' name was Pearson.

Per the family bible transcript (available online), married Nancy Varble 29 August 1827 in Oldham County, Kentucky; married Mary Ann Watson 19 March 1843 in Jefferson County, Kentucky; married Mary DeGaris 19 February 1852 in Jefferson County, Kentucky.

Children with Nancy Varble:
Pearson Clifford Montgomery (1828 1892)
James Augustus "August" "Gus" Montgomery (1830 1865)
Theodore Montgomery (1831 1862)
Sarah Catharine Montgomery (1833 1835)
John Young Montgomery (1840 1878)

Children with Mary Ann Watson:
George Washington Montgomery (1844 1845)
Martha Jane Montgomery (1846 1847)

Children with Mary DeGaris:
Joseph Montgomery (1852 ?)
David Montgomery (1854 ?)
