The Index figures at the end of the volume refer to the pages on which the names of descendants will be found. Females are always given under their family (not their married) names. Asnames of the same persons, and persons in the same families, have been frequently found differently spelled, variations of the same family names are placed together in the index. For the benefit of other genealogists, some information con cerning other Monroe families is given in the appendix. I desire to express my sincere gratitude to the many who have so cheerfully aided me in this difficult undertaking. But most especially are we all indebted to Professor Will S. Monroe of Montclair, New Jersey, who has spared neither time nor expense in advancing this work; and has himself collected and arranged the material in Chapters II, VI, VII, VIII, IX, XIV, and whose friendly counsel and experienced advice I have frequently avail ed myself of.
