As the younger son of Eldred "Monk" Menser, I find this thread rather interesting! My understanding is that my father was called "Monk" because he used to sing a song that contained the line "What became of the monk, the monk, the monk..." when he was a boy. Since I have been researching the family history, I have heard that his grandfather Marion was also called "Monk." Because Marion lived with my grandparents when my father was young, I have wondered whether their common nickname was more than just coincidence.
