He probably died the end of February 1929 because legal notices in the newspaper started the beginning of March.
March 7, 1929 (SMR)- NOTICE TO CREDITORS—Pursuant to an Order of Andrew J. McNaught, Surrogate of the County of Delaware, notice is hereby given to all persons having claims against John Munroe, late of the town of Stamford.
From April 4 - 6 his entire stock was to be sold including 80 pairs of Rubber Boots at $3.25 per pair and a large quantity of men's work shoes, fell boot rubbers, arctics, rubber overshoes, for men and women, at less than cost. John D. Winter was the Administrator. I don't know how he fit so much stock in such a small building.
The Stamford Cemetery book lists John Monroe as being buried in the Stamford Cemetery, in section B-12, without any dates listed but I could not find a gravestone for him.
Following John's death his shoe shop, that sits on one sixteenth of an acre, was sold to Frances Ford and $16 was paid for the annual land tax. In later years the building to the right was a shoe repair shop owned by Peter and Gretchen Shafer.
