Luke Munger, 4/7/1812 - 12/9/1863, was married twice
   
LUKE MUNGER AND EUNICE LORETTA REED
   
Luke and Eunice were married in Milan, Huron County, Ohio, on March 29, 1835. They remained in Ohio for a short time, their first two children being born there. In the fall of 1839 they moved to Michigan, where Eunice bore three more children. She died at the age of 32, on June 18, 1847, in Porter, Van Buren County, Michigan.
   
Luke Munger and Eunice Reed had five children (from the Munger book and the biography):
   
Esther A.b.Milan, O.,Dec. 6, 1835d. Oct. 9, 1906
Russell V."""Aug. 22, 1837 
LaFayette"Porter Twp., Mich.,Jan. 27, 1840  
Abner M.""     "     "Feb. 7, 1842 
Eliza A.""     "     "May 14, 1844  
   
The Munger book gives no further information about these children, but it has been possible to expand their lines with the help of material written in a history of Berrien and Van Buren Counties, and with census documents and other sources.
   
ESTHER A. MUNGER: The presence of a death date for Esther might lead one to think that she had died unmarried, but that is not true; she married Leonard Monroe Harris (Dibean marriage list) and bore him at least 3 children; see the line below. Most of this line stayed in Michigan, but Floyd, son of Lafayette, took his family to California. I have not been able to confirm the death dates of either Flora or Esther Harris. I do not find either of them in the 1900 census.
   
RUSSELL V. MUNGER: Russell's story, and that of Abner, are linked with Luke's story in Michigan. Both requested that their biography of their father be added to the Berrien Book, and it was. Three of Russell's children died young. It is not known what happened to Charlotte and Alberta.
   
LAFAYETTE MUNGER was killed by lightning on August 7, 1861.
   
ABNER M. MUNGER: Marrying and having children in Michigan, Abner is the subject of a separate biography in the Van Buren book. Sometime before 1900 he left Michigan, for in 1900 he and his wife are in Township 3, Fresno County, California. The two of them remain in California at least until 1930; in 1930 they are in Oakland, Alameda County, and Abner, age 88, is a retired fruit grower.
   
ELIZA A. MUNGER: It was LDS that provided the name of the man she married. Further confirmation could be found by studying the civil war pension files, for Joel D. Monroe filed for a pension, and Eliza filed as widow after Joel's death. I have not obtained those files, but there is other evidence, and the identification does seem to be accurate.

LUKE MUNGER AND REBECCA HARRIS
   
After Eunice's death on June 18, 1847, in Porter, Van Buren County, Michigan, Luke married again about nine months later. Rebecca Harris was the daughter of Amos and Sally Harris. She was born in Ohio, but her father became an early settler of Kalamazoo County, where he appears on the tax rolls at Prairie Ronde in 1838, along with Luke and Russell Munger and Abner Mack.
   
Luke Munger and Rebecca Harris had nine children (from the Munger book and the biography):
   
Eunice A.b.Porter Twp., Mich.,Feb. 20, 1848  
Sarah M."   Nov. 7, 1849  
Mary E."   Sept. 30, 1851  
Salvador R."   Aug. 15, 1853  
William H."   Oct. 10, 1855  
Cynthia I."   Feb. 28, 1858  
Luke W."   Jan. 30, 1859  
Eva Augusta"   Nov. 29, 1861x
Frank"   Apr. 21, 1864  
   
With one exception (Eva Augusta), neither the History of Berrien and Van Buren Counties nor the Munger book gives further information about these children, but it has been possible to expand their lines through the contributions of Thomas Beard, and the use of census records and other sources.
   
EUNICE ALMIRA MUNGER, MARY E. MUNGER AND FRANK MUNGER: Three of the children died in childhood.
   
SARAH and her husband and small daughter were living with her mother in 1870. Her marriage is dated to September 2, 1866, by LDS, but it is not mentioned in the Dibean list, which is surprising, considering the number of Mungers from that family who are listed. The rest of the data came from the census records.
   
Census records provided the line information for WILLIAM and for CYNTHIA, whose marriages are recorded by the Dibeans, and for LUKE, whose marriage appears in LDS. The census also establishes the childlessness of SALVADOR.
   
EVA AUGUSTA is assigned a number and a place in the Munger book.
   
   
The rest of the information about Eva Augusta has been contributed by Thomas Beard.
