Edmund was born about 1844.
Edmund migrated to America around 1864, following his two older brothers. For 4 or 5 years, he lived in New York, before moving (with his brother Robert), in August, 1870, to San Francisco.
At Robert's trial (for debasing gold coin) in December, 1870, Edmund testified that: "..he was 26 years old and had been born in Bavaria. He was a goldsmith by profession and had been in America for 6 years. He came to California in August (1870) and had been working as a goldsmith with his brother Adolph. He lived with his other brother, Robert, at the latter's cigar store."
A few days after Robert's conviction and sentence, it was reported in the San Francisco newspapers on January 1, 1871:
IMPAIRING GOLD COIN - Edmund Biber, who with his brother, Robert Biber, was indicted by the United States Grand Jury for the offense of impairing and lightening gold coins of the United States, was released from prison yesterday, on finding security in the sum of $3,000, to await the trial of his case. His sureties are Charles Cordell and Adolph Biber. His brother, Robert Biber, it will be remembered, was tried recently in the United States Circuit Court, found guilty, and sentenced. 
In August, 1871, under a heading of Law Intelligence - Monday, August 21st, 1871 - US Circuit Court - Sawyer, J. - The case of the United States vs. Edward (sic) Biber was dismissed. The United States Marshall was ordered to levy an execution in this cause to seize the debased coin as payment of the fine imposed on Robert Biber of $1,000.
