Parents unknown.

August 21, 2012 note from Jerry Reddell [Jared], "This is a man. His name was Lorenzo Dow Monroe. He married Amanda Melvina Cotton about 1874 in Milam County, Texas.

"Please add a link to his wife, Amanda Melvina Cotton Monroe Wilkerson, Find A Grave Memorial# 16339551.

"Unfortunately there is a duplicate memorial for him... One of them should be removed and the information combined, since it is very confusing when two memorials exist for the same person and FAG rules prohibit it."

Note: I question this link to wife, as Amanda Wilkerson's Death Certificate # 51708, born Dec 11, 1864 in Milan Co., TX and died Nov 19, 1946 in Maryneal, Nolan Co., TX is the daughter of L. D. Monroe & Sara Smith. Unknown why her stone & death certificate have different birth years. I also found a Death Certificate for Lorenzo Dow Monroe born Dec 30, 1876 in Goldthwaite Co., TX and died Apr 5, 1960 in Sweetwater, Nolan Co., TX who is the son of James L. Monroe & Armanda Cotten. Are both DC in error?

30 years, 8 months, 5 days.
