      (The following is from "Descendants of John Munro" - by W. M. Roeser)

      «i»Charles A. Monroe was born March 15, 1885 on the second floor of the Central Fire Station in Pontiac, Michigan. He graduated from Pontiac High School and Ferris Institute at Big Rapids. He had been employed as Assistant Superintendent of the Pontiac Water Works under H. L. Monore.

      W. O. Roeser and Min Osmun frequently told a story of accompanying Charles to Chicago. While in a "speakeasy" they saw two men in dark coats enter with a hand inside their coats who looked around the room. They left and returned with another dark coated man. He immediately came over to greet Charlie, and WOR and Min were introduced to Musolini who was the alleged hit man for Al Capone in the "St. Valentines Day Massacre" in Chicago. Rumor had it that Charlie made occasional deliveries of booze from Chicago to Michigan for Capone.

      He lived at Oxbow Lake and died of pneumonia at age 45 on 5 Apr 1930.«/i»
