He was among the prioneers of Methodism in Lincoln County. In his day circuits were large and ministers few, and the local preachers exerted a beneficent influence and did a great work. He was conspicuous as one of the founders of the Rock Springs Camp Meeting, and sometimes preached to
the great congregations there assembled.
His will made a few weeks before his death, bears date 10th September,1834. He spelled his name Monday. He had living at this time seven sons and four daughters.
He was laid to rest in the grave yard at Bethel, in sight of his home. His headstone bears this inscription:" Scared to the memeory of Rev. Jeremiah Munday, who departed this life in the 73rd year of his life. The Rev. Jeremiah Monday was a faithful soldier in the Revolutionary War for three years and a minister of the Gospel for 35 years until his death."
Jeremiah Munday discharged with fidelity his duties to God, his country and society; his name is a precious heritage to his descendants; his services for American liberty merit the gratitude of his countrymen, and
should be held in perpetual remembrance.
