Yesterday I came across a Thomas Munnell who taught at the Eclectic Institute, later called Hiram College, a Disciples insitution in Ohio, where he taught President Garfield in the 1850s. It also mentioned that Thomas Munnell was a graduate of Bethany, which is a Disciples college near (or in?) Wheeling, WV. Doesn't he sound like the same Thomas Munnell whom you found teaching at Alma Illinois Industrial College?

The source of this information was Harriet Taylor Upton's *History of the Western Reserve,* ( Chicago: Lewis Publishing Co, 1910). I see that Google is offering the images online (free) at:
