In Reply to: Re: CHARLES PORTER TOOLEY--ELEANOR MONROE by Connie Paris of 837

Hi Connie,
Thanks for your information on William Tooley. One more question about him, though. Who did he marry?
Eleanor M. Monroe (Munro) was one of seven children of WILLIAM M. MONROE (b. 25 May 1784, Ky?; m. ca 1806, Warren Co., Ky; d. 4 Feb 1847, Howard Co., Mo) and JERUSHA WILLIAMS (b. 25 Nov 1790, Ga; d. 10 Jan 1851, Howard Co., Mo). Among Eleanor's siblings was James Stewart Monroe, my gg grandfather who moved to Oregon in 1852 and then to California in 1865.
I don't know anything more about Jerusha Williams, but William M. Monroe's parents were DANIEL MONROE (b. 1751, Va; m. ca 1777; d. 8 Aug 1824, Howard Co., Mo) and ELEANOR OR SARAH FRAZIER (b. 1758; d. 1834, Howard Co., Mo). Daniel Monroe was a veteran of the American Revolution.
Some researchers think they can trace Daniel Monroe back further, but I am doubtful of their results. So, for the time being that's as far as I can go with the Monroe line. Although, I do know the family came from Scotland.
Stewart Monroe
