I know extremely little about his life in Germany or his ancestors. The only clues I have are:

* His father's name was Peter Beil
* Family legend says he was running from police and came over with 3 other men in a 17-foot boat.
* In America he was a carpenter
* He lived in Ohio for a few years before moving to Kentucky.

I'd like to know more about your Biel family.
Does any of this information ring a bell?
