Montgomery was a member of Captain William Gilmer's command of Tennessee Volunteers, when he enlisted in the Volunteer Auxiliary Corps at Nacogdoches January 14, 1836. Shortly after he joined the Texas Army and was a member of the crew that manned the Twin Sisters Cannon at the Battle of San Jacinto .
Thomas Green later made the statement: "Baxter was member of the Artillery and acted very gallantly in the Battle of San Jacinto - from the excessive fateague of that day (21 Apl 1836.) he was taken sick at the camp near the Battle ground - and died at Harrisburg perhaps a week or two after the Battle when we camped there on our way to the west." The only family known to exist at the time of Montgomery Baxter's death, were his Brother Nathaniel Baxter, and sisters still living in Tennessee.
