Benjamin Wedel (ca. 1700-1759), was born near Schwetz, West Prussia, Germany, and lived in the village of Terespolna. His second wife was Sarcke Pankratz of Konopat. He was a second known elder of the Przechovka Mennonite Church near Schwetz. He was likely the host of Hendrick Berends Hulsoff of Holland, who visited the congregation in 1719. Wedel died in November 1759.
