Rev. John P. Spinner was born in Germany and emigrated to America in 1801. He was the first Pastor of the Herkimer Reformed Church 1801-1848.

(The SpinnerLine).
(II) Rev. John P. Spinner, son of John Peter Spinner, was born in Baden, Germany, and died in Herkimer county, New York. He was educated in the Gymnasium of Bishopheim and the
University of Mentz. In 1789 he was consecrated to the Roman
Catholic Church. He married Mary Magdale Fedelis Brumante,
a native of Loire; and in 1801, accompanied by his wife, emigrated to the United States, having renounced his priestly vows.
He landed in New York City, and in 1802 was called to the pastorate of the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of German
Flatts (town of Mohawk), Herkimer county, New York.
Here he ministered to the spiritual welfare of his people for forty-six years, broken only by a short period of teaching. Nor were his services confined to this particular
congregation, for he preached to the people at Columbia, Warren, Indian Castle, Manheim, Schuyler, and in some of the towns of adjoining counties, and at the church in Herkimer village. He was thoroughly educated, and his sermons are said to have been eloquent and masterly.
He died at his residence in Herkimer, May 27, 1848, aged eighty years.
