Montgomery Co., NC
Montgomery County was formed from Anson County in 1779 and was named in honor of General Richard Montgomery, who had been a distinguished British soldier for 16 years. He sold his commission in 1772 and came to America. He soon became a staunch supporter of the rights of the colonies. When the Continental Congress at Philadelphia commissioned officers for the army with General Washington in 1774, Richard Montgomery was among those commissioned a general. He was killed leading his men in the attack on Quebec.
In 1841, that part of Montgomery County west of the Pee Dee River became Stanly County.
