There have been quite a few Moningers born, raised, and buried in Chicago. My father's name was Edward George Moninger, born February 9, 1915. His father was Edward Moninger, married Mae Ryan and had 3 sons and 1 daughter. He died in 1919. My father's grandfather was Valentine Moninger, married to Catherine Schraud, had quite a few children, and died in 1919. He was from Gersheim, Germany with connections to the Moningers in Karlsrhue. There is a Moninger monument in a Gersheim cemetery. There are also Moninger mouments in Chicago cemeteries. There was a second Moninger family that also settled in Chicago that appear to have been cousins. *Coincidentally--or not--there is very sizable Moninger family located in Washington, PA that have very similar names and birthdates to my family's (especially in the mid 1800's to early 1900's). If anyone has any information or would like some, please contact me at email@example.com.
