Jane Harper of Chatooga County, Georgia

Published under African Americans on 10/02/2011

Gibson “Gib” Montgomery was born a slave around 1850 in Chattooga County, Georgia. Gib married Jane Harper on December 23, 1869 in Chattooga County and they had two sons before what descendants describe as a stormy marriage ended in divorce. When the 1880 census was taken in the Texas Valley area of Floyd County, Georgia, Gib Montgomery is described as the brother-in-law of Essex Freeman. Essex had a wife and four children and had taken in Gib, his two sons, and Mary Montgomery (age 17), who is described as the unmarried sister of Essex Freeman. The census says that Gib, age 30, was married and working as a laborer. His first wife, Jane Harper Montgomery, could not be found living immediate area of what was then Freeman Town or in her native Chattooga County. Gib Montgomery married Henrietta Freeman, sister of Essex Freeman, on February 27, 1885 in Floyd County, Georgia.

So what happened to Jane Harper Montgomery? Are her descendants correct in stating that she left or divorced Gib Montgomery? Did she marry again?
