============= Naturalization witnesses Wm. N. Cross and Wm. F. Pew; li sts him as nati ve of Great Britain ============ Chippewa Co, Michiga n (Rosedale) - James b. here in 1874 and Annie m. Pet er Morway here i n 1887, so the family didn't just "pass thru". Since Pet er Morway wa s from Cheboygan, it's probable that the families knew each ot her. Th ere is a Morway family living next to George and Susan in 1871 cens us . Perhaps the Montgomery family moved to Cheboygan Co as a result of A nn ie's marriage to Peter Morway. Family appears on 1900 census.
