    Notes 
    • Margaret was the daughter of John MONTGOMERY and Jane Carr SCOTT.

      Besides their own children, John and Jane MONTGOMERY adopted Elizabeth Osborn EAST and Chestina. Elizabeth was 3 years old at the time of Jane's death in 1873 and was presumably the 13 year old living in Margaret NORSWORTHY's home in the 1881 census. Elizabeth married Thomas POWELL in Brandon, Manitoba and had two daughters, one of whom was Lena Grace, who married a Percy TOPP on 29 December 1917 in Elkhorn, Manitoba. Chestina married Ed SEARLES. Neither Elizabeth nor Chestina were mentioned in John MONTGOMERY's will when he died in 1876. (Personal communication) [1, 2, 4, 5]
