Thank you for the reply. Yes, I believe the Munger/Monger name is neither
Dutch nor German. I believe it is Scottish and the family is originally
I have a Benjamin Munger who married into my Stalker family. Benjamin owned
the firm H & B Munger of Hudson and later moved to Albany and became a
shipping agent for the railroad. I believe the "H" in H & B stands for
Henry, his brother.
Thanks for checking for me.

Arthur Kelly has 7800 Dutch and English names (and spelling variations) in
on Dutch names, but does not list that name or anything close. He
transcribed the Claverack bp. records and does give the name as Pordy, so it
must have looked like that. It would be pretty hard to know that Pordy was
male unless he married or had children baptized under that name. His name
does not appear in the index of the bp. or mg. at Claverack.
Perhaps Munger/Monger is not Dutch. I did not find the name in the
by Jones either.
Sorry I couldn't help more.
