Johann Flierl & Wilhelm Flierl

Johann Flierl (1858-1947) was a German Lutheran missionary who worked for several years in Australia before arriving at Finschhafen, on the northeast coast of New Guinea, in 1886. He established a station at Simbang and in 1892 at Sattelberg. In 1930 he retired to Australia. His son, Wilhelm Flierl (1892-1966), was born in Finschhafen, and except for the years 1922-27 when he was in the United States, he served as a Lutheran missionary in New Guinea from 1914 to 1963.
