    • (Notes from Pamela Cranston)

      According to the Peter Montague Family genealogy p. 189.

      "Richard Dabbs Montague had a military turn of mind from a young boy. He studied hard and studies medicine. he went to New Orleans in 1834 and began a business there. In 1837, he joined the militia of New Orleans and in 1837 went with his regiment to Florida to fight the Seminole Indians. After the treaty of 1839, while on his way home from Tampa Bay to new orleans, he was kiled by a fly wheel of a steamer. He was observing its mechanism and being naturally near-sighted stood too close to it and was instantly killed. He was of a gay and lively disposition yet tender and gentle-hearted as a woman. He was greatly loved by his comrades in arms and deeply lamented by all who knew him." [1]
