Notes for PATIENCE MARVEL:

Montgomery, Patience Marvel, settled Gibson County 1807-08, previous residence Georgia.

Reference to Patience Marvel marrying Robert Montgomery.

Patience was living with son Samuel and Phoebe Elizabeth Pruitt when they decided to move to Illinois. She did not share the enthusiam of the young people to move to Illinois, so she moved in with her youngest son, Thomas, in Gibson County, Indiana. She was buried at Antioch in Gibson County.

Robert Montgomery was a soldier in the War of 1812, and in after years when she applied for a pension, she failed until Nathan Knowles, the only living witness to the marriage, testified to the facts.

Patience was the first of the children of Prettyman and Lavina Rogers Marvel to leave the family home. She and Robert Montgomery were married on April 30, 1913, by the Methodist Circuit riding minister, Rev. Benjamin Edge. This was said to be the first marriage in the Black River Basin in the Indiana Territory.

Notes for ROBERT "ROBIN/YOBIN" MONTGOMERY,SR.: SUBSTANTIATED RECORDS OF PROOF --

The following notes reflect the course of investigation on Robert Montgomery.

Sometimes his name will be written as - Robert Montgomery; Robert "Yobin" Montgomery; Robert Prettyman Montgomery. I do not know if the middle names or nicknames are correct. Montgomery, Robert b. Delaware ca. 1780, settled Gibson Co. ca. 1811, previous residence Georgia. (1)

Roll of the Army Commanded by William Henry Harrison from September 6 to November 24, 1811 - William Hargrove's Company of Infantry (Knox County area) - Private Robert Montgomery, discharged September 19th. (2)

The Montgomery family are among the oldest residents and settlers of Gibson Co., Indiana. Robert came to the county while he was yet a young man. In 1812 he married Patience Marvel, who was the daughter of Prettyman and Lavina Rogers Marvel. She was born in Delaware, and came with her parents to Gibson County, in 1811. She died in December, 1883, at the advanced age of 92 years. Robert enlisted twice as a soldier in the Indian wars of the Northwest. He served at the Battle of Tippecanoe, in 1811. (3)

A Robert Montgomery, from the south-west part of the state, shot an Indian White Loon the morning after the battle. The Indian rode off and was never seen again.

Robert Montgomery died April 15, 1846 and was buried in the family cemetery on the farm of his son James, near Cynthiana, Indiana.

FAMILY TRADITIONS --

According to family tradition and Hounds, "John Tipton's Memoriers", Robert Montgomery was the last man to shoot at the Indian Chief called, "The Prophet." (Great grandson, Robert Montgomery of Cambridge City, Indiana had the powder horn that Robert carried as well as some papers with signatures on them.) His widow Patience, did receive a pension for his service at Tippecanoe. A granddaughter told how Patience scared away the wolves from the cabin door of an aunt by burning the end of a broom, while Robert wasaway. Finally, tradition claims that Robert was an orphan, leaving behind a sister and a brother in Greene County, Georgia. Upon hearing that the Marvel family had arrived in Indiana, Robert came down and lived with them; working for Prettyman Marvel, Sr.

Patience Marvel spoke with a lisp.

Around April 3, 1812, Robert followed Patience to where she was milking cows and held them while she milked. He suddenly asked, "Patia, will you milk my cows?" A quick answer was "No, Yobin, I won't milk your cows." After realizing what he said, she said, "Say that again, Yobin." He said, "say what?". She said, "what you said." He asked again and this time she said, "yes, Yobin, I'll milk your cows." They were married April 30, 1812, and first lived in Gibson County and later moved to Posey County, Indiana.
