Heinrich Peter Kaÿser, son of Conrad & Anna Christina Kaÿser, was baptized on 5 March 1715 in Buches, near Büdingen. He married there on 11 April 1739 to Anna Margaretha from Binsaches (perhaps Bindsachen). They had at least five children baptized there: Anna Margaretha (30 May 1744), Johann Conrad (22 May 1746), Johannes (26 December 1753), Christian (25 July 1756), and Anna Leonora (25 March 1759).
