Do you have any siblings for Philip or know where he came from? We have a Carl/Karl BIEBER who is the father to our William. Several other children. We are looking for Carl's parents. We believe they came from the Zweibruecken area of Germany. William came through NY with brother Heinrich/Henry (as best we know), but settled in Watertown Wisconsin which is in Jefferson Co.
Would be interested in hearing more about your Philip if you have more info.
