looking for descendants of some Hemmerlin from Alsace

Hello everybody,

I'm looking for my cousins who are descendants of these people born in Alsace and who immigrated to USA:

Joseph Hemmerlin, born on 25 February 1866 at Niedermuspach (Muespach-le-Bas), factory worker at Somerville near Boston on 1911 when his father Benedictus Hemmerlin died.

Josephina Hemmerlin, sister of Joseph, born on 7 September 1887 at Niedermuspach (Muespach-le-Bas), she arrived at Ellis Island on 11 may 1909 with the ship Kroonland from Antwerpen, she was going to her brother Joseph, she was living at Reading Pemia (I don't know where it is) on 1911 with her husband Jean Baptiste Brand.

Jean Baptiste Brand, husband of Josephine Hemmerlin, Born about 1885 at Mulhausen (Mulhouse), he was on the same boat as Josephine (but they were not married and it is possible they met for the first time on the ship), he said he was going to join his uncle Johann Schmidlin at Philadelphia (nb 2318 of the 12’Street) but he lived also at Reading Pemia on 1991 and he worked as a cooker.

Descendants of Camille Hemmerlin and Julia Eugenia Pfaff from Niederanspach (Ranspach-le-Bas): all the people who are referenced on the database of RAY E. FEARING and MAGGIE KITTS on FamilySearch, here are the names: Hemmerlin , Watson, Fearing and Brainard and certainly some others now, I write to Mr. Fearing but my letter came back…

You can see all these people and others there:

Thank you to all who will help.
