Bio: Sophia is the daughter of William and Anna (Sleyster) Munson. Louis Grotjan was Sophia's first husband, they were married 30 Dec 1875 at Brunswick, Chariton, MO.

His wife was Sophia Munson, the oldest of three Munson sisters who married three Grotjan brothers. Despite the differences in the spelling of this surname, their father William Munson was a brother of Caroline Mensen, the first wife of Lewis H. Grotjan. William and Caroline were both children of Minnie and John Henry Manson. These German natives came to the United States with their children on a sailing vessel, a voyage which required nine weeks. The Mansons settled in Brunswick township in 1840, among the first settlers of that section. In the month of August that year this colony of Germans was only the second influx of that nationality in Chariton County's history. Their names included Frederick Fieker, Charles Fieker, and John H. Munson -- all of whom settled up the bottom south of Brunswick
