Amos K. Monteith (1840-1910)was the son of Thomas Monteith (1811-1858) and Nancy Limerick.  During the War Between the States, he served with the 9th Virginia Cavalry.  In 1868, Amos married the widow Sarah Eliza (Rowe) Jones, the daughter of John G. Rowe and Nancy McGuire.  In 1877, Monteith was overseer of the road for an unspecified section.  By 1882, he was overseer “from White Oak run to the run ab Babcock’s hill.”

In 1889, Amos was arrested and harged with taking money from a letter.  The newspaper reported, “Upon information lodged yesterday through Commonwealth’s Attorney W. S. White, of Stafford, Officer Robinson arrested Mr. Amiss Monteith, of Stafford, charged with abstracting $84.73 from a letter belonging to Mr. James Bloxton, of that county.  When arrested the prisoner was at the R. F. & P. depot, on his way to Washington, and denied the charge.  He was taken to the Mayor’s Office, and telegrams sent to Stuart & Co. of Washington, who is claimed to have sent the money, but at the hour of going to press nothing had been heard, and the prisoner is still in custody.  William A. Little, Jr., Esq., has been retained as counsel for the accused.”
