The Joel Montgomery family is listed in the1860, 1870, and 1880 Federal Census records of Franklin Co., Va.
The 1850 Federal Census for Franklin Co., Va. records Samuel Montgomery, age 57 with Elizabeth, age 57, Elizabeth (40), Elias (20), and Sarah (18) as neighbors of Andrew Montomery, age 32, Sarah (20), Mary M. (7), Henry (5), Michael (3), and
Owen (2). The 1860 census records Samuel and Andrew as neighbors to Joel Montogomery and family. All respective family members, and additons, are listed appropriately. The 1870 census does not list Samuel Montogomery; however, Elizabeth, age 78, is living in the home of Hannah Naff as a neighbor of Andrew and Joel. The 1880 census reecords Elizabeth, age 88, living with Joel and is listed as his mother. It is resonable to conclude that Samuel and Elizabeth are the parents of Joel Montgomery.
