1. James Monkman, son of Isaac Monkman, was born in 1774 in Knapton, East Riding, York, England and died on Mar 31, 1852 in Albion Twp, Peel County, Ontario aged 78.

General Notes: According to an obituary in the Christian Guardian of May 5, 1852, James Monkman was born in Knapton, East Riding of Yorkshire in 1774. At the age of 33 he was converted to Wesleyan Methodism (in England) and appointed a class leader in Allerston.
He emigrated to Canada in 1819, and his application for land states that he was accompanied by his wife and 5 children. He stated that two of his sons were of age, the eldest being married. Because the latter's wife fell ill she and the two eldest sons stayed in Cornwall temporarily while the rest of the family continued on to York. The petition for farm land states that James was willing to pay for the land, and asked that land be set aside for the two grown sons adjoining what he might be granted. the petition was read in Council on Oct 15, 1819 and 100 acres was granted to James, probably in Albion Township on the 7th concession. No provision seems to have been made at that time for land for the sons. James signed his land petition by mark, indicating he probably could not read nor write. The Christian Guardian obituary suggests that the Monkman family went to Newmarket before settling in Albion. One son, John, was granted land in Tecumseth Township but no proof has been found of any stay at Newmarket. Just a few months before James made his application for land, a petition was made by a William Monkman, also from Yorkshire, and he was granted land in Tecumseth Township. As yet no evidence has been found to link William with James' family, although census information indicates he was born about 1790-95, the right age to be one of the older sons, and he does seem to have brought his wife (Hannah Dale) with him from England.
On settling in Albion, James Monkman became a member of the Methodist class of "Father" Roadhouse. Meetings were held alternately at the Monkman and Roadhouse homes. Later the group divided and James was appointed leader of the class in his neighbourhood. His daughter Nancy married James Roadhouse, probably a son of "the Apostle of Methodism" mentioned in the Christian Guardian obituary. James died March 31, 1852 in Albion, aged 78. when and where his wife died is not known. The Monkman home was on Lot 17, Conc 7, Albion. This is the lot on which the old Wesleyan Methodist burying ground was situated

Death Notice for Alice Parker Monkman, Christian Guardian, June 12, 1839
Died, in Albion, April 4th, Alice, wife of Mr. J. Monkman, aged 25 years. Her maiden name was Parker - daughter of William and Ruth Parker. She was born the 22nd of November, 1813, near Mohill, county of Leitrim, Ireland. At the tender age of eight years she lost her mother, who died in the triumphs of faith, near Toronto, 1821. She was married March 3rd, 1829. From early youth she was the subject of religious impressions. After her marriage her convictions became more deep and pungent; in the summer of 1829 she joined the Methodist Church, but did no experience relief from the burden of sin until near the close of the year. Constitutionally diffident, she often felt and expressed herself with fear and sometimes with doubt in regard to her state, until she obtained a blessing which filled her heart "with joy unspeakable and full of glory" at a Camp meeting held on Mr. Thos. Coxford's farm, near Yonge Street. Her natural disposition was amiable, but her constitution feeble; her piety was deep and uniform; her attendance upon all the means of grace was regular and punctual; her attachment in the Church of which she was a member was established and strong; she was the instrument of her husband's awakening and conversion; a most amiable and valued wife, and the affectionate mother of three children. The last days of her life wren scenes of holy triumph in the God of her salvationl and of affectionate and devout counsel and prayers for her husband, children and relatives, which will long be treasured up by them. She gave signs of victory through the blood of the Lamb after she lost the power of speech, and among her last words were: "Yonder's my house and portion fair; my treasure and my heart is there, and my abiding home"

General Notes: 1881 Census - ON Bruce Cty Arran - age 24 living with parents
Elizabeth had 2 children before her marriage to Wren Silaway. The first child, a daughter Julie, was raised in the Tara area.
The second child George caused quite a sensation in the papers of the day, as Elizabeth named James Mathias Monkman as his father. James was the teacher at Arran Lake School. He was widowed with a small son at the time. He was not hired as teacher again, and in later years became Clerk of Arran Township.

"In 1885 Elizabeth gave up her children, moved to Michigan and married Wren Silloway. We don't know who got the daughter Julia who was by then eight, but the Hunt family adopted George. Elizabeth and Wren had a daughter. Although they would come to Allenford to visit her family as far as I know she never saw my father or his siblings. Elizabeth's daughter by her husband wrote to her first child Julia over the years, but I've not heard of any contact with George. My father did not know the Michigan family existed until the year he died, 1979."

"Wren wouldn't take the two children so Julie was placed with an unknown family and all trace of her was lost until 1900 when she married and the announcement was in the Tara paper. When she was admitted to hospital in Saskatchewan, several years later, she gave her mother's name as Elizabeth and gave her grandfather's name as her father. George was given up for adoption to Richard and Georgeanna Petty Hunt. Georgeanna Hellier Petty was a niece of Tom Dornan's wife Jane Hellyer. Tom and Jane were Aunt and Uncle of Elizabeth. Elizabeth and Wren Silaway lived in the Sparta area in the state of Michigan. At least two of her sisters had married and lived in that area as well.
Alfred Hunt was told by Mary Aiken that Elizabeth was alive in 1927 when his father, her son by James Monkman, died. Mary attended the funeral and spoke to Alfred. She told him that the reason she had taken Milton in was "because of the relationship". She would have told him more but other family members stopped her. Alfred never had another opportunity to speak to her about his grandmother."

Death Notes: "Albert Monkman, who died at his home in Winnipeg, was a native of Albion, county of Cardwell, Ontario, where he was born in June 1850. He was educated in the public schools of Bruce county and afterwards by private tuition in Toronto. He commenced the study of law in 1871 at Walkerton and soon after as a student joined the staff of Cameron, Macmichael & Hoskin, barristers, in Toronto. He was called to the Bar in 1876 and started the practise of law with the firm of Morphy & Morphy, and continued with them for three years when he left the city of Toronto to come to Winnipeg. His first law practise in the latter city was in partnership with the present Lieutenant-Governor, Sir James Aikins. This partnership lasted for several years, but was broken up finally when Mr. Monkman became head of the firm of Monkman, Dingman & Jameson. At different times until 1893 Mr. Monkman was in various legal partnerships, but in that year he established business for himself and thereafter practised alone until the day of his decease, with the exception of about two years during which time he acted as District Registrar at Morden. At the time of his death he was the senior practising member of the Manitoba Bar. Mr. Monkman gave considerable time to fraternal orders. He was a member for very many years of Prince Rupert's Lodge, No. 1, G.R.M., A.F. and A M., and was also a prominent member of the Canadian Order of Foresters, joining that order in 1880 and becoming the first District High Chief Ranger of the order for Manitoba. He has been District High Auditor of the Canadian Order of Foresters since 1903. He was also a member of the Ancient Order of United Workmen, in which society he held several of the most important offices. He was married in 1876 to Martha A. Taylor of Toronto, who, with six children, survives him. The children are James E., now with the J.R. Kirk Commission Company of St. Paul; Annie T., at home; Charles A., manager of the Manitoba Steel & Iron Company of Winnipeg; Mrs. R.W.

My father and grandfather, Don and Louis Monkman, operated the general store on the southwest corner of Queen and King Streets. (Cookstown) At one time, I worked there as well. The store had groceries, hardware, guns and pain. We also sold cement and lent out a cement mixer, until one time someone took it but didn't bring it back. Eventually, in 1976, when Grandpa grew old and there was no one to run the store anymore, it was sold.
(Brian Monkman; Memories of Cookstown, pg 5, Innisfil Historical Society)

My father, Don Monkman, owned the garage on the northeast corner of Highways 27 and 89 for about 30 years (Cookstown), beginning in the mid 1940's. The garage was associated with Imperial Oil (Esso) from 1947 until 1976, and with Chrysler Canada from 1946 until 1975. At one time or another, my brother Ted, sisters Bev and
Janice, and I all worked at the garage. (I also worked at the general store and the egg grading station both owned by my grandfather Louis Monkman.) In addition to selling and servicing Chrysler products, we sold Philco radios, stereo living room units, and televisions for many years. (This ended when the Philco company was bout out by Ford and Chrysler forced us to stop selling Philco products.) The garage was a busy place, and some times were busier than others - Sunday nights during the summer months, for example. We were the only gas station open between the lakes and Toronto, and we stayed open until 2 a.m. Snow storms presented a particular challenge, and the worst that I can remember happened in the late 1950's and early 60's. (By that time we were no longer using the small converted half- ton truck with the hand crank winch; instead, we had a three- ton truck.) When the roads were blocked, Dad and I, along with a mechanic (either Doug Campbell or Ivel Wood), went out with long poles in front of the Department of Highways snow blower, looking for cards that were covered with snow, between town and Sharp's Hill. This also happened many times between town and 400. I can remember find an Alliston doctor's car at the top of Clover Hill. Until we put the rods into the four-foot deep snow, we didn't realize that we were standing on top of the car? We had to dig out the back end of the car by shovel, and then pull it out of the snow bank, using the tow truck and cables, so the blower cold keep going through the large drifts. I also recall one very cold Christmas Day. Dad got so many calls from people needing help, that he and I were out in the tows trucks from 10 a.m. until supper time. And we even went out again after supper!

"MONKMAN, James Albert - Suddenly at his home, 166 Annette St., Sunday, April 22, 1945, James Albert Monkman, beloved husband of May Campbell, dear father of Mrs. George Cult (Edna), Mrs. James Donaghy (Lenore), Pte.

Interment Park Lawn Cemetery"

The last name Cult for daughter Edna is likely a misprint. In a later obituary for Lenore Donaghy, Edna's last name is spelled Culp.

Burial Notes: Newspaper clipping states interment at Park Lawn Cemetery. However, a phone call made in 2004 to Park Lawn Cemetery revealed the fact that they were not buried there, rather they were buried in Toronto's Prospect Cemetery - Section 18, lot #658, with his wife May Campbell
Records at Prospect Cemetery indicate that the owner of the gravesite is Margaret Monkman, probably his sister(?)

General Notes: 1881 Census - he is 4 years old living with grandparents (James "Squire" & Catherine)
1891 Census - he is 14 living with father James Mathias & stepmother Margaret Hannah
1901 Census - there is a Jas. Monkman living in Essa Twp. as a boarder (single), and who was a printer by trade. However, the date of birth is recorded as Aug. 10 1880 (age 20), which does not agree to his stated date of birth on his marriage registration. The marriage registration does indicate that he was a printer, however.

Also, cousin Jeannette Rodie wrote on Feb 10, 2012: "My mother however was born in Detroit, as their father had taken a printers job there for a couple of years"

Elyce Gardner (Monkman-Brinkman) remembers that the Monkman family were at one time living on Annette Street, Toronto, in a house owned by an Aunt Margaret, possibly James' sister Margaret, who may also have owned the burial plot in which he was buried(?)

in 1915 (July) James emigrated to USA, arriving at Detroit Michigan, USA, and indicated May was living at 126 Pauline Ave. N. in Toronto. Wife May followed in April 1916 - the family lived at 872 Porter St. in Detroit Mich.

in Sept. 12, 1918, James was drafted into the USA Army for WW I. He indicated his address as 872 Porter Street, Detroit Michigan.

in January 1920 James and May, with 3 children (Ruby - 17; Edna - 8; and Lenore - 3 1/2) were living in Detroit, Wayne, Michigan, next door to May's brother Harry (35); his wife Agnes (33) and daughter Margaret (1) at 872 Porter Street, Detroit Michigan.

   197 M    iv. James Herbert Monkman was born in Jul 1920 in Toronto, Ontario and died after 1982.

Death Notes: date of death and place of burial are unknown

General Notes: 1921 Census - Parkdale, Toronto ON - age 11 months
address was: 66 Moutray Avenue

Sister-in-Law Gail (Gardner) says he went by the name "Herb" and his nickname was "Speed", he worked for a dry cleaners before marriage, at some point worked for Avro, and he was colour blind. He had 3 sisters, Edna, Lenore and Ruby, and was a soldier in WW II.

There is record of a J.H. Monkman who was in the 5th Infantry Brigade Ground Defence Platoon (Lorne Scots - Regimental No. B-149977)
The file indicates that he was "taken on strength" as Private on Oct. 18 1944 and later he was "struck off Strength" as Lance Corporal on Mar 3 1945.
We know that John's father came home from the war on compassionate leave in March 1945 after a house fire in Feb. of that year almost took the life of his firstborn, John Herbert.
Efforts are being made to obtain a copy of the record, but proof of his death is required..

"Speed had a car with a rumble seat. We had gone on a picnic, had a good day, but coming home it poured raining. I remember climbing out of the back soaking wet. Johnny would love to have that car today. Our days became busy with families and we lost track of one another for a while. Speed lived a few doors from Aunt Mary's on Gillespie Ave. He was a good looking man. Johnny looks a lot like him." (note from cousin Marg James July 8/04)

As of 2012 no documentation showing proof or information has been found regarding his birth or death. His parents names were located on his certificate of marriage, but even that is questionable. He indicated that his mother's name was Mary Elizabeth Campbell. However, according to her own marriage registration (York County # 001520), her name was May L. Campbell. Her birth certificate reads "Lenna Winifred May Campbell". The Obituary in the Toronto Star of April 23, 1945 indicates that May Campbell was the mother of Pte. Herbert Monkman and his three sisters, Edna, Lenore and Ruby.
Both his address on his certificate of marriage, and the address on his father's obituary is 166 Annette Street.
These proofs combined are considered sufficient to say for certain that James Herbert Monkman was the son of James Albert Monkman and May Campbell. Nonetheless, research is ongoing to obtain documentation of his birth and death.

"I must confess that I probably do not have a great deal of factual or rather documented proof re uncle herbie as to his birth or death. I know he was 4 years younger than my mom and she was born Dec. 31, 1916. Herb I believe was born in July 1920. Herb also remarried but not until near his own death. He lived with aunt Peggy for many years. They were only actually married a short time when he had a stroke, a very severe one leaving him unable to walk or talk and had to reside in Sunnybrook veterns hospital until his death." (email from his niece Jeanette Rodie February 2012)
