I have two Christian Becherer's in my data, from Mühlhausen. One was born in 1802 but didn't marry until 1847. The other Christian was his cousin, approx. the same age but I don't know anything else about him. I have a lot of information on this family and Mühlhausen (which I will share) but first we need to prove that Becherer is/was the correct surname for your ancestor.
Was he married when he came over? I found him in the 1900 and 1910 census listings in NYC where he stated that he immigrated in 1869. If he was married here then maybe his marriage registration would list his parent's names.
Do you have his passenger list/immigration records where his correct name may be recorded?
If you can send me a private message we can get into more detail.
