Volunteers Dedicated to Free Genealogy



This county is available for adoption.


We're looking for folks who share our desire to put data online and are interested in helping this project be as successful as we can make it.

If you are interested joining our group as County Host for this website, or any of our websites, view our
Volunteer Information page . A desire to transcribe data and know-how to make a basic webpage is required.


In the meantime, we'd be very happy to accept any data you'd care to contribute and would like to see displayed on this site. We're looking for the birth/death/marriage records, obituaries, cemetery headstone readings, biographies, county histories, census data, pensions and other military data.

Email your transcribed data to me Christine Walters and I'll take care of putting it online.

WE REGRET THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO DO PERSONAL RESEARCH FOR YOU.
All data we come across will be added to this website, so please keep checking back.



Montgomery County was founded in 1796. It was named in honor of Col. John Montgomery. He explored the Cumberland County in 1777. He participated in the punitive expedition against Dragging Canoe in 1779; he accompanied John Donelson on his river voyage to Nashborough. He was a signer of the Cumberland Compact, the first sheriff of the district and founder of Clarksville. He commanded territorial troops in the Nickajack Expedition in 1794. He was then killed later that same year by Indians.
