Beismer surname

My maternal grandfather's surname was Beismer.  It's been a difficult surname to research.  I current have about 2 dozen possible variant spellings including:  Beesimer, Beesmer, Beasmer, Beasimer, Biesemiere.

My grandfather said his family was Swiss and German Dutch (German).  I have never found the Swiss connection although there is a town in Belgium with a similar spelling to Beisemiere, right near the Swiss border.  I don't know where they came from.  I  can't make a connection between the Beesimers in Ulster County and those in Sullivan County.  They have been one of the most difficult families to research.  There are many gaps in records.
