Surname Saturday: The Monum Family from The Centennial History of the Town of Springdale, Dane County, Wisconsin, 1848-1948

Over the past few months, I have been posting articles from the Centennial History of the Town of Springdale,  Dane County, Wisconsin, 1848-1948.  Sometimes these articles are about my McPherson family, but many times not.   The Monum Family came to Springdale years after the McPhersons had passed on or moved on.  Nevertheless, I continue to  hope that these stories will bring forth more contacts, family, friends and history of my McPhersons and the town of Springdale,  and to, perhaps, provide a link for those who had family in Springdale during those early years in Springdale.

THE MONUM FAMILY
as presented on page 135,
Centennial History of the Town of Springdale
Dane County, Wisconsin, 1848-1948
 
Mr. and Mrs John E. Monum and their five children, namely Garnet, Alice, Arthur, Harold and Jeannette came to Springdale in the spring of 1920, and resided on the Oti's farm near the Springdale Lutheran Church.  The family took an active part in all church and community affairs.  Mr. Monum, who took a special interest in civic affairs, held several public offices and took part in debates on political problems and other topics of interest to the Springdale community.  Mr. and Mrs Monum know as "JOHN and LENA" in Springdale, now live in Mt Horeb, Wisconsin, but their son Harold, and his wife, Evelyn, and daughter Carol Jean are operating the Monum homestead, and are generous contributor to Springdale affairs.
