    Biography
    • Robert was born on the old homestead in Lewis Township, and received a common school education, and was engaged in farming from boyhood up to taking the office of Sheriff in January, 1891. The family are adherents of the Presbyterian Church, and Democratic in politics. For 18 years Mr. Montgomery served as the school director in Lewis Township, and has always taken a deep interest in educational matters. He was a delegate to the state convention that nominated Heister Clymer for governor, served in the Legislature in 1870-71, and in November 1890, was elected sheriff of Northumberland County, which office he is now filling. In fact, he has been one of the active hard-working Democrats of the county since early manhood, and has won hosts of friends who remain true to him in the close political battle of last November.
