MONTGOMERY, Henry Eglinton, clergyman, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 9 December, 1820; died in New York city, 15 October, 1874. He was graduated at the University of Pennsylvania in 1889, and then studied law for two years, but abandoned it .and prepared for the ministry at Nashotah theological seminary and the General theological seminary, New York city. After receiving ordination at the hands of Bishop Alonzo Poher in 1846, he was called to the charge of All Saints' church in Philadelphia, where he remained nine years. In 1855 he was called to the Church of the Incarnation in New York city. In 1864 a new church building was erected for this parish on the corner of Madison avenue and Thirty-fifth street, which at that time was one of the finest church edifices in the city. In 1863 he received the degree of D. D. from the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Montgomery was always a hard worker ; he had no assistant in his ministry, and, besides the constant demands upon his strength made by a growing church, he had for years been a prominent member of nearly all the missionary and home societies for the advancement of the gospel. His younger brother, JAMES EGLINTON, is the author of "The Cruise of the ' Franklin, ' " a narrative of Admiral Farragut's visit to Europe (New York, 1869).
