From stuff I've picked up, there were four branches of the family originating in Bavaria in the United States. Our branch was Philadelphia, and later Camden NJ. A large group is in Baltimore, more on them anon.
A note from Lawrence Biemiller:
The "John B. Biemiller" wasn't owned by the Biemiller family. It was
owned by a syndicate of investors, and it was named after John B.
Biemiller because he was the largest shareholder, owing 1/16th, as I
recall. He was in the ice and coal business -- not timber, as far as I
know. The ship, though, was not particularly connected to the Biemiller
Ice & Coal Company -- it was a personal investment on John B.'s part.
As I remember -- I haven't looked at the papers in years -- it carried
general coastal cargo, which probably would have included timber as
well as ice (packed in sawdust), coal, and probably grain.
