T he descendants of John and Isabella Montgomery have gone to the four corners of the earth in their pursuits, and in service to their country.  A far distance from the rural "local" lives of the 1700's, 1800's and early 1900's.

We remember our ancestors traversed this America to reach Illinois, crossing mountains, hills, prairies and rivers, all in search of better tomorrows, in search of happiness.

A bit of wanderlust lives in all of us, still.

A Montgomery Family Genealogy
As recorded and developed by W.J. Montgomery
Regarding the version of the MONTGOMERY COAT OF ARMS shown on the Opening / Index page:
Working in graphics in 1972, I shot 2 black and white line art negatives of the Coat of Arms which appeared on a flyer, dated June 25, 1926, which solicited the sale of Montgomery Genealogy books.  This flyer was passed down to me by my father, James Robert Montgomery.
I hand-opaqued all of the black lettering which overprinted the red COA art, leaving only that which appeared in red ink. Red ink was same as black on a negative. From the second negative, I needed the "Montgomery", so I repeated the process in reverse, opaqueing away the red image, leaving only "Montgomery". (Today this could be considered a lost art.)
The first colorized versions were done with colored markers on black and white prints made from the opaqued negatives. Later, I added the coloring permanently by scanning the original print and creating multiple overlays.
