Notes Louis was born on July 19, 1854 on his family farm in Elk Grove Township located on the north side of Biesterfield Road. His parents were Heinrich "Ludewig" Bierman and Catharine Dorothee Margarethe "Wilhelmine" Thies. Ludewig and Wilhelmine immigrated from the Hanover region of Germany and arrived in the United States in 1851. Louis' sisters included Maria and Emma, who were both married to Henry Casper Schuette, the builder of the farmhouse on the museum grounds. The Bierman and Schuette family both attended church at a converted schoolhouse on the Biesterfield family farm.
