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

      ĞiğJohn D. Monroe, MD was born in Pontiac above the Fire Barns and then lived at 68 Norton Avenue and also on Neome Drive, Pontiac, Michigan.. He attended Pontiac schools, and graduated from Detroit College of Medicine and Surgery (now Wayne State Medical School) in 1917.

      He entered the military in the Army Medical Corps, and served in France and Germany in WWI. He returned to Pontiac in the General Practice of Medicine. In 1926 he took the position of Oakland County Physician, and in December 1927, he organized Michigan's first County Health Department in Oakland County. He was the director for 36 years until his death in December 1963. He died of a ruptured Aortic Aneurysm.

      Although he never formally adopted Mary Turner Monroe's son, Charles "Jack" Turner, he accepted him into the family and always treated him as a son.Ğ/iğ
