Washington Munger was a Baptist minister; ordained at Holland, Mass., in 1832; in Stafford, Conn. in 1839; from thence to Tolland, Windham Co., Conn., where he remained until 1850, when he removed to Mystic, Conn., and later to Waterford, where he died. Gardner says of him: "Not frivolous or inclined to gabbling; sedate, comtemplative, studious. Was esteemed as possessoror moral merit. After adult age taught school winters, and worked on a farm for hire. Not an eloquent man; but of good sense, great candor, fair pulpit talents, and one who is true Christian spirit, could tolerate in others, opinions differing from his own. A man of natural priestly bearing."
