Strohm (Strahm), a Mennonite family, formerly living in Switzerland. Ulrich Strohm immigrated to the Palatinate, Germany, in 1671; Martin Strahm (Strohm), of Höchstetten, was in prison at Bern, Switzerland, because of his Mennonite convictions, and was expelled from the country in 1711; he probably also settled in the Palatinate. Here Heinrich Strohm was a preacher of the Oberflörsheim and Griesheim congregations 1758-90, and Johannes Strohm was a preacher of the Erpolzheim and Friesenheim united congregation 1757-80. Another Johannes Strohm (born 1781 at Kriegsheim, died 1852 at West Point, Iowa), a preach­er of Schway, Bavaria, 1821-47, immigrated to Amer­ica with some children and many grandchildren. One of these was the preacher Matthias Strahm.
