Pet er Morway here in 1887, so the family didn't just "pass thru". Since Pet er Morway was from Cheboygan, it's probable that the families knew each ot her. There 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 Ann ie's marriage to Peter Morway.
