Daniel Kamm

Daniel Kamm, ii, s. il. July1 . Unmarried;( Christianspring). Born in W├╝rtemberg Jan. 19, 1715. A shoemaker by trade. In 1734 he traveled and came to Frankfort on the Main, where he became acquainted with the Brethren. Later to Marienborn where he was received into the congregation. In 1741 to Herrnhaag. In 1746 received a call as missionary to Berbice, British Guiana, being received as an acolyte before leaving Zeist. In 1747 he went with Niels Clarup to Berbice, serving in Pilgerruh nine years. In 1756 he came to Bethlehem being in feeble health. In 1759 received a call to Surinam and went there with Brother and Sister Meisery serving at Sharon. In consequence of an attack by hostile blacks, in 1761, he was obliged to flee. He came to Bethlehem via New England. Became sick nurse in the Brethren's House in Bethlehem and later in Christianspring. He was a very faithful man and greatly beloved. [This individual's name appears on a page in the 1743-1755 Single Brothers' catalog that seems part of the list of individuals at Christiansbrunn. But nearly all the individuals listed on this page appear in no other lists of individuals at Christiansbrunn. We think it highly likely that this page aims to list single brothers in Bethlehem, not in Christiansbrunn, although the page's placement in the catalog seems to suggest differently. So Kamm probably was not in Christiansbrunn until 1752, when his name begins to appear regularly on other lists of people.]
