I have 7 James Montgomerys - none with middle initial "R". This must be my GGGGF James Montgomery, Sr. m. Elizabeth Downey. His son, James, Jr. was old enough for the Civil War but wife was Marrhenia Jones. James Sr. b. 1793 would have abt. 70 yo - 5 sons b. 1819-1933 . Plenty old enough to be in military too and all a little old to be called "boy" in 1862. Stranger things have happen: my dad apparently received his draft notice for WW II. His younger brother went to draft board and pleaded to take him instead as dad was the oldest (responsible) son of a widow - draft board took them both!
