Salmon and Mary MATHEWS MUNGER can be found in the MUNGER Book 1639-1914 that was complied in 1915 by Jeremiah B. MUNGER.

Salmon was the fourth child out of nine for Philip and Mary (unknown surname) MUNGER.

Salmon was born 10 February 1766 in CT. He died near Saratoga, NY on the 8th of May, 1814.

He married Mary MATHEWS in 1786. Mary was born in 1762 place unknown she died the 17th of October, 1836.

They had the following children, who were all born in Saratoga, NY:

Salmon b 18, December 1786 *
Luther b 7 September, 1788
Ruth b 28, October, 1790 *
Gideon b 22, April 1793 *
Rufus B. b 16, May, 1796 *
Samuel b 31March, 1799 *
Calvin b 8, April 1802
Luther b 26 September, 1805*

Salmon MUNGER was a farmer. Luther his second son, was supposed to have been stolen by Indians. He had been with his elders in the forest or field, and when they came in for dinner in response to the horn, he was sent on an errand to the "trip-hammer shop" but never returned. A search of many days and many miles around failed to give any clue to his fate. It is said his mother was never known to smile after this event. She named her last child in memory of the little boy whose fate was never known.

* In the MUNGER Genealogy book it shows the marriages and families of these children.

Salmon MUNGER is my 5th Great Grand Uncle, our common ancestors are his parents, Philip and Mary (unknown) MUNGER. Salmon's youngest brother, Thomas is my 5th Great Grandfather.

I will be more than happy to look up any of the family in the book. Philip served in the French and Indian War.

This MUNGER line is from Nicholas's second son Samuel b East Parish, of Guilford, CT 1662-5, he died in the same place on the 5th of March 1717 at the age of 56 years, he married Sarah HAND, they had eight children.

Surnames: Sayles Sales Munger Monger

In 1812, Deacon Salmon Munger named his newborn son, Darius Sales Munger, b. Hanover. Darius Sayles mentioned as a member of his church in 1811.

Ahab Sales/Sayles
Had 4 children per Letters of Administation dated 26 Dec 1797- Balltown, NY.
Believe his wife must have died about that time as she isn't mentioned in the document.

Delila Sales b. btw. 1780 and 1790
Darius Sales b. abt 1886
Ester Sales b. 4 Jun 1787 (twin)
Elijah Sales b.4 Jun 1787

Phillip and Thomas Monger of Stillwater were assigned as administrators of the children's assets.

Phillip being Salmon's grandfather and Thomas his Uncle.

Was wondering if there is any known link between these families? Perhaps Ahab Sayles m. to a daughter of Phillip?

Darius S. MUNGER was one of the first settlers at Manitowoc, WI, removing to that place in the spring of 1837. Was a carpenter and builder; a man possessed of remarkable natural mechanical ability. Was Tax Collecter, Justice of Peace, Postmaster. Had much to do in the upbuilding of the town of Manitowoc. It is said his son was the first white child born there. Late removed to Missouri, and in 1868, proved up a claim on the Osage lands for a town site, which later became the city of Wichita, Kansas. He built the first dwelling in town, which was residence, hotel and postoffice.

Wichita First Dwelling

Wichita's fisr dwelling house, after being hid from public view for some thirty-seven years, has suddenly emerged from its seclusion, and now for a few days presents the most interesting of holiday treats.
This house is the homestead of D. S. MUNGER, erected in 1868 on the claim which he proved up on the osage lands for a town site, at the suggestion of a Burlingame land company.
What was Mr. MUNGER'S home, is now known as 901 North Waco Avenue, where for a generation was the home of the late Commodore W. C. WOODMAN, Wichita's pioneer banker.
P. J. CONKLIN has for several yeats owned the land, and some time ago sold to DR. J. H. FULLER the historic dwelling, which was concealed in the WOODMAN home. It is now for the reason that DR. FULLER has workman engaged stripping off the WOODMAN house which has been as a shell to the historic old first dwelling, and is removing the MUNGER house to a pemanent location closer to the river banks.
It will be recalled that in the spring of 1910 Mr. CONKLIN presented to the city of Wichita a log cabin which occupied his premises, and this cabin was removed to Central Riverside Park, near the Zoo. It was described by some persons as the MUNGER cabin. A number of old-timers called the EAGLE'S attention to the fact that this was a very grave inaccuracy relating to the early history of Wichita, causing the EAGLE to secure from Mr. MUNGER'S daughter, living in this city, an authentic story of the MUNGER home, which they stated was still concealed in what has been known in Wichita for many years as the old WOODMAN home.
The EAGLE printed a number of letters from old-timers who identified the building now in Riverside as a trading-post, in no way connected with the MUNGER home.
The MUNGER homestead was Wichita's first dwelling, hotel and postoffice. As soon as the Indian lands could be proved up for homesteads, Eli P. WATERMAN proved up one claim, ehich he sold, and D. S. MUNGER proved up a claim further to the north. Mr. MUNGER arrived in Wichita in the spring of 1868, and commenced immediately the construction of his home, a work which occupied most of the year. Mrs. MUNGER remained in Topeka, their daughter Mary (Mrs. WATSON of this city) attended Bethany Seminary at that place. In the spring of the 1869 the daughter joined her father, Mrs. MUNGER coming in the fall. The building was constructed of logs for the most part, and were cut by Mr. MUNGER on what was known as Teuchel Island near the junction of the two rivers. He went to the island in a skiff, cut down the cotton woods and hewed them out with an adz, and carefully joined them. This house was pretentious considering the labor necessary in those days of pioneering, when many plains men were content with sod houses, dug-outs or rough puncheons.
Mr. MUNGER lathed the house, cutting windows and splitting them for the purpose. For plaster he burned his own lime, building a kiln on the river bank back of the house. He used buffalo hair to bind the plaster. He hauled the window glass, sash and flooring from Emporia, overland in frieght wagans.
A small log addition on the north end of the house was Wichita's first postoffice, if one may ignore the fact that the "really and truly" first postoffcie was Mr. MUNGER'S black silk hat. In this log postoffice room was a table about three feet long, on which were piled cigar boxes for pigeon holes. Here Miss Mary MUNGER, fourteen years old when she came to Wichita, acted as assistant to the postmaster.
On the north gable of the house, the exterior was plastered, and in the plaster pebbles were embedded in a effort to put a mark of distinction to the first dwelling. ( Wichita EAGLE, 24 December 1911).

Darius's father is brother to Thomas who is my line.

I will finish the family information as time permits.
