  • Notes 
    • He married the daughter of Philippe Duval and Jane Scott.

      William and his family owned a schooner which was lost off the coast of Africa in a storm. This loss placed them heavily in debt so they imigrated to the United States from Paspebiac, Quebec, Canada.

      Their first U.S. home was in Hudson, Wisconsin.

      DEATH: William George Munro, died 27 March, 1914, age 75. Buried at Fairview Cemetery, Stillwater, Minn.

      From: St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Hudson, Wisconsin; Burial Records, Vol III. Church History published Sept. 15, 1984, Hudson, WI.

      St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Hudson, Wisconsin would have been the church of choice for Celina Duval Munro as she had always been listed on Canadaian census records as "Anglican" or "Episcopalian" and their children had been baptised in St. Andrew's Anglican Church at Paspebiac, Quebec. The Munro's, as well as the Sherar's, Caldwell's and all the other Scottish Colonists at Paspebiac and New Carlisle preferred their own Scottish Presbyterian Church and attended as long as it was available. Later it merged with the other presbyterian churches and became the "United Church." By the time William George Munro emigrated to Wisconsin his family was attending this church and the transition to the St. Paul's Episcopalian in Hudson, Wisconsin was a natural choice. This was the predominent Protestant church in Hudson, as the Episcopalian ministery was established at Hudson by 1860 and continued to grow and prosper. There were Munro children married from this church (Sarah, Emily, Margaret, Jane and Albert) as well as baptisms of some of their children, and finally the funerals of both Celina and William G. Munro in later years.
