Thank you for all your help. I had forgotten I posted this message. After posting this message I did find the obituary for Florence and did write to one of her daughters but have yet to hear back from her. See Amy was a sister to my Great Grandfather John Alvin Monness. The Monness family is kind of a mystery to me I get little bits and pieces here and there but still digging. I do have great aunts alive but they know very little or are not willing to share what they know.
As for this Grace Durgin I have no clue how she fits in.
There are other Monness' out there, their father was John Martinus Jonasen (Johnson). From what I have found out they changed their name to Monness after coming to this country. I know they lived by Martell, Wisconsin, which is where I believe the John Martinus is buried. John Martinus's father was Martinus Jonasen (Johnson).
I appreciate any help that you can provide me.
