Montgomery

Trip Planner USA  /  Texas  /  Montgomery
Montgomery is a city located in Montgomery County, Texas, a part of the metropolitan area. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 621.HistoryThe town of Montgomery was founded in the middle of the Lake Creek Settlement by W. W. Shepperd in July of 1837 on 200acre of land that had originally been part of the John Corner League. Shepperd had established the first store in the Lake Creek Settlement in 1835. W. W. Shepperd and his partner John Wyatt Moody named the town Montgomery.Montgomery became the first county seat of Montgomery County shortly after the county was created on December 14, 1837.Origins of the city's nameLocal histories and accounts by 20th century historians held that the city and county of Montgomery were named after a family of early settlers to the area: Andrew Montgomery and Owen and Margaret Montgomery Shannon. However, recent evidence provided by Carrol Cagle and Kameron Searle suggests that, while there were residents of the area with the surname "Montgomery" living in the area, it is more likely that the town and county were named after Lemuel P. Montgomery, a major of the U.S. Army during the Creek War. According to Cagle, John Wyatt Moody, one of the founders of Montgomery, was the County Clerk for Montgomery County, Alabama, before moving to Texas. Montgomery County, Alabama, is named for Lemuel Montgomery. Furthermore, Cagle also states that Lemuel Montgomery died in the arms of Sam Houston during the Battle of Horseshoe Bend (1814). Sam Houston was the President of the Republic of Texas when the town and county of Montgomery were founded.
