Joseph MONTNEY and his wife, Margaret FRANK lived in Montgomery Co. after the Revalutionary War. He died there. They had 4 children-John (born 1786 in Montgomery Co.), and Joseph (born 1788 at Mohawk Flats in Montgomery Co.), and Mary and Albert, who were probably born there. Joseph is said to have served under Lafayette and the 3 boys fought in the war of 1812. Joseph died in Montgomery Co. Would like to verify all of this. Surname may be spelled differently.

Mr Anderson:
I am researching material for an article I am writing about an Island , part of Prince Edward County in Lake Ontario, directly across from Oneida County NewYork. In the 1700s it was part of an Indian Reservation. On this Island is an old stone house of French Architecture that was built by a French Fur Trader named Joseph Monteney. In 1820 a family arrived from Ireland named Shannon and either purchased it or simply moved in. The first official records have that family as the first registered owners. I have pictures of the house if you need to see it.
When I looked into the history further I see that his son Albert lived on the Mohawk Reserve, very close by and in fact died there and is buried at Napanee just down the road. I am sure that this Joseph Monteney was closely connected to the local Indians as he needed them to acquire furs as this was his business.
Please contact me if you have any further information. My telephone # is 613-476-6065 and email is
Bill Cowan
PS: Other settlers on the island are linked to New York state.
