K.4. Friedrich Emil Kaes (Käss or Käs), aka ‘Emil Friedrich Kaess,’ b. Oct 15 1889 in Benningen,
Württemberg, Germany, d. Jan 3 1968 in Benningen am Neckar, Baden-Württemberg, Germany, m. Anna Berta Falkenecker or Falkenauer (b. May 11 1890 in Heutingsheim, Württemberg, Germany, d. May 15 1970 in Benningen am Neckar, Baden-Württemberg, Germany) on Mar 29 1913 in a civil ceremony. A church wedding was performed on Mar 30 1913, prob. in Benningen. They celebrated their 50th ‘Golden’ wedding anniversary on Mar 31 1963 in Benningen. His parents are Andreas Kaess (1824-1896) and Johanna Caroline Lang (1850-1932), both from Benningen. Friedrich Emil Kaess worked as a shipbuilder on the Orinoco River in South America and eventually returned to Germany where he lived out the rest of his days in Benningen. In a 'familienregister', he is mentioned as having visited Buenos Aires  in 1923. Trained Carpenter. Mentioned as ‘Master Carpenter.’ Anna Bertha worked as a maid in Ludwigsburg. Friedrich Emil Kaes and Anna Berta Falkenecker had 4 children together: Emil, Berta Freida, Paul, & Lina Elsa. A family photo from the 1960's shows Friedrich Emil Kaess and Anna Berta Kaess in a group photo with Kaess family members, including Gerd Edwin Kaess. Ursula Kaess says her Grandfather was named Emil Friedrich Kaess. His name as Friedrich Emil Kaess was confirmed by Claudia Blumhardt, a Lutheran Parish secretary in Heutingsheim. Emil Friedrich Kaess may have been a rufname or ‘preferred name’ for Emil Friedrich Kaess. Anna Berta Falkenecker was known as ‘Berta ‘ to her family. They may have also been grape-growers.

Any extra info on Friedrich and Anna Berta would be appreciated.

Kaess Family Ancestors

Date for Johannes Kaes is (1794-1862/1869). There is a 'familienregister' placing his death date as Jan 1 1869. Another unrecorded source has his death date as 1862. The former is more believable.

Date for Andreas Kaes is (c1755/1757-1824). There is a birth record for Andreas Kaes mentioning his birth date as Jul 17 1757 in Benningen, Germany. His parents Johann Jakob Kaes and Anna Elizabetha Buerklin are mentioned as well in this record. The c1755 date comes from an unrecorded source. There is an Ancestral File record/IGI record  at familysearch with a Jul 14 1757 birth date. The first birth record date of Jul 17 1757 appears to be the most reliable date.

Foto 7 below is the same document as Foto 1 above. Foto 7  shows the birthdate of Andreas Kaes as Jul 17 1757. His wife is Johanna Barbara Entenmann (1760-1824). Andreas Kaes vital years should be amended from (1755-1824) to (1757-1824).
