I have enough info to pursue swiss records. There was a Johann Bohren as mayor of Gridelwald ~1830-1840 and could have been my gggrandfather but obviously the Bohrens in that town go back quite a ways.
It does not seem to be a very common surname in the US however in that spelling.

If they are from Gridelwald there is little doubt there is a relation. I am still trying to decipher the process of querying the available Swiss records to trace mine. My Egli roots are from Bern also and are most likely from Grindelwald as well.

Thanks for the feedback.
