Addendum to Montgomery House Site

The site plan and house dimensions shown here, in concert with the General's 1825 Probate Inventory and the Daybook, continue to round out the life of the family in the early years of the young Republic.  In addition to the buildings currently noted, the inventory mentions a 2nd barn (with "5 swine, 5 pigs and 1 bay horse") and a blacksmith shop, as well as the contents of the store. Not surprisingly the most expensive item listed was an eight day clock valued at $20.00 ( New post to follow.)
