Pueblo County, Colorado

Contributed by Karen Mitchell.

The subject of this sketch is descended from one of the oldest families of Pennsylvania. His ancestors came from Ireland to America in 1732, and settled in Pennsylvania. Their descendants have become quite numerous, and now among the prominent people of the State. David Montgomery was born in Northumberland County, Penn., March 20, 1833. He received his education in the high school at Wyoming, Penn. In 1855, he went to Minnesota, where he entered a body of land and engaged in farming. He was married, at St. Paul, Minn., in 1855. In 1864, he returned to his old home in Pennsylvania, where he lived for years and pursued farming, until coming West, in 1877. In November of that year, he located at Pueblo, Colo., where he has since resided. Mr. Montgomery has been liberal in investing his means. He now owns much valuable property at Pueblo, having himself erected a number of buildings.  History of the Arkansas Valley, Colorado O L Baskin & Co., Chicago, 1881
