Munjor Kansas

Munjor's name also underwent an Americanization. The colony of Obermonjour was founded by 108 families.

It was one of the largest convoys of migrants out of the Volga River Valley.

English-speaking neighbors couldn't properly pronounce the long version of the name and mistakes were common -- when the community's post office first was chartered, it was granted to the city of Over Muncha -- so it was changed to Munjor. In 2010, it had a population of 213.
