What was an origin of monkeys according to evolution theory?

What is an age and a homeland of the most ancient monkey fossils?

Is it true a hypothesis about a monkey did spring from rodents like squirrels and mouses? Or the monkeys did spring from any type of dinosaurs?

Some wise thinkers have proposed that "man did not ascend from monkeys but rather, descended from monkeys"(monkeys being more advanced). [:D]

rodents they came out after the ice age. Might be a coincidence but the first animal in the chinese calenda is the rat/mouse.
