Johannes Fliner, Flinner, Fleiner, Fleenor, Flyner, born 10 June 1721, Flein, Wittenburg, Germany.
Johannes is listed in the "30,000 Immigrants" written by Rupp, as a passenger with his wife Anna aboard the "John and Elizabeth" which landed in Philadelphia on 7 November 1754 from the German provinces of Hanover, Wittenburg, and the Palatinate.
The family migrated to the vicinity of Frederick, Maryland, where the roles of the Lutheran Church at Woodsboro (eight miles from Frederick) show them as members during this period.

About 1775, the six sons of Johannes Fleenor (Flinner) moved to Benhams, Washington County, in the southwestern part of Virginia, and their place in that community is well documented.
