Zaremba, Felician Martin Von

Zaremba, Felician Martin Von a famous missionary, was born at Zaroy, in the Russian government of Grodno, in Lithuania, March 15, 1794. He studied at Dorpat for a political career. In 1816 he was made doctor of philosophy, and in 1817 engaged at St. Petersburg in the college for foreign affairs. In the same year he concluded to give up everything and to work in the service of his Master. He went to Basle in 1818, and having spent there nearly three years, was appointed to commence missionary operations in Grusia. Having received his ordination in 1821, he went to Shusha, which became the nucleus for his operations. In 1830 he was obliged to leave his post on account of feeble health, and returned to Basle. In 1835 he again returned to his post, but, on his way, an imperial ukase forbade further operations. All representations were in vinn, and Zaremba, the first and last missionary of the Basle Society, left Shusha in 1838 for Basle. From 1839 to 1864 he travelled through Europe in behalf of his society, but in 1865 he was struck with apoplexy. He died May 31, 1874. See Der evangelische Heidenbote, 1874, No. 7. (B.P.)
