Toews, Johann (1803-1887)
Johann was elected minister in the Ladekopp Mennonite Church in West Prussia in 1832 and Ältester (Elder) in 1853. He eventually (possibly in 1869) joined the Mennonites who migrated to Russia and established the Am Trakt Mennonite Settlement and church, of which Johann Wall was the elder. Johann Toews functioned as honorary elder. Little is known about his life.
