Revision as of 19:12, 20 August 2013

Peter Eymann, a South German Mennonite who entered political life and was at the same time active as a leader in his congregation. He was born 13 November 1788, at the Lohmühle tanning mill in the community (Gemeinde) of Langmeil in the Rhenish Palatinate; died at his mill in Diemerstein on 14 March 1855. In 1833 he was elected mayor of Frankenstein, and with one brief exception, held this office until his death 22 years later. In spite of a limited education he was quite successful in this office. Politically he favored a republican government. In 1848, the year of the revolution, he was elected as a delegate from the district of Kaiserslautern-Kirchheimbolanden to the Bavarian diet at Munich. He was the first German Mennonite to hold this position. The diet convened in January 1849. On 15 May the republic was proclaimed in the Palatinate, and on 29 May the diet at Munich was dissolved. Eymann went home a sick and broken man following this. Prussian troops restored order in the Palatinate.

Eymann served after 1816 as an assistant minister of the Mennonite congregation at Sembach, but avoided this work as much as possible. As a result of his earnest efforts the first salaried minister was installed at Sembach.
