Montgomery County was formed from Clark County after creation on 14 December 1796.
Its county seat is Mount Sterling.
Records were destroyed by fires on 4 Mar 1851 and 2 Dec 1863.
Montgomery County was possibly named in honor of Richard
Montgomery, an American Revolutionary War Brigadier General killed
in 1775 while attempting to capture Quebec City, Canada. Another
story states that the County was named for Thomas Montgomery, from
Virginia, who served in the Revolutionary War. In 1793 Thomas
Montgomery settled in Mt. Sterling. In 1805, Thomas Montgomery moved
on to Gibson County, Indiana.
