General Montgomery was a leader on the American side in the War of Independence and as well as counties that were named after him there are many towns and cities named Montgomery, such as the state capital of Alabama. President Andrew Jackson, the son of Ulster-Scots parents, said of Montgomery, 'he will ever live in the hearts of his countrymen.'
However the Presbyterian congregation can be traced back to 1723 and the ministry of Rev Hugh Conn, who was born in Magilligan, county Londonderry, in 1685. He was a graduate of Glasgow University, which he entered in 1707 as Scoto-Hibernus. Conn sailed for America in 1714 and was ordained as a Presbyterian minister in October 1715. He was a founding father of the Presbyterian Church in America and a colonial proprietor of Washington, DC.
This is just a simple example of the depth of the Ulster-Scots influence in America and in 2013 the US Open will be at a location in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
