Johann Töws (1805-1889): elder of the Mennonite congregation at Bröskerfelde, in West Prussia, then in Ladekopp and Pordenau, rendered his brotherhood meritorious services by his vigorous, sympathetic work. In 1836 he took part in the founding of a school (Vereinsschule) in Bröskerfelde, contributing the land for the building and grounds. He corresponded with brethren in other countries, especially in Russia. In the Mennonitische Blätter he repeatedly replied to the articles by Christian Schmutz of Rappenau on mission work, the proposed ministerial training school, and the monument to Menno Simons.
