    • (Notes from Pamela Cranston)

      According to the Peter Montague Family Genealogy p. 189. The Rev. Abraham Montague and his wife Jane Lee Montague were both drowned at the same time about the year 1825 while on their way to attend an evening meeting while crossing Moratico Creek which divides Richmond Co. from Lancaster Co., just north of Montague Island. They were crossing the creek in a boat that proved to be too heavily loaded. The boat capsized. Mr. Montague was an expert swimmer and could have saved himself and his wife but she frantically seized and clung to him, making it impossible for him to use his arms. They were both buried in the same coffin. [1]
