Johann[es] Lindner, a farmer, and his wife Anna arrived from Lübeck at the port of Oranienbaum on 15 September 1766 aboard a ship under the command of Skipper Gabriel Wild.
They settled in the Volga German colony of Hölzel on 11 September 1767 and are recorded there on the 1767 census in Household No.28.
In 1788, Johannes Lindner and his family moved from Hölzel to Neu-Kolonie.
The Oranienbaum passenger list records that Johann Lindner came from the German region of Bernau while the 1767 census records that he came from the German village of Seinsheim [?] in the Bamberg region.
