Grimm, Daniel (17th/18th century)
Daniel Grimm, a Mennonite preacher in the Emmental, Switzerland, a follower of Hans Reist, was opposed to the emigration of the Mennonites to the Netherlands in 1711. He was banished by the magistrates, but returned and caused much trouble for Runckel, who was organizing the emigration in co-operation with the Dutch Committee of Foreign Needs. Grimm is said to have escaped from Switzerland in June 1711. No further information about him is available.
