Monee is a village in Will County Illinois with a population estimated at 5,100. The village has a total area of 4.42 sqaure miles of land. Monee was founded in November 1853 by Augustas Herbert. Lore and legend says Monee's namesake is a French-Ottawa Indian woman, Marie LeFevre Bailly. She was the daughter of a French fur trader and was a half-French, half-Ottawa Indian woman. While young Marie was called "Mah-ree" by the French, the Ottawa had no sound corresponding with the letter "r," and thus called the little girl "Mah-nee." French treaty clerks later wrote the name as "Mo-nee." On November 9, 1874, the village was incorporated.
