I am a descendant of Charles Franklin Feeback. I have a photo of him and his wife, Katherine Jungbacker. Regarding your question about Kentucky, I don't know "old Fred", but here is some information about the connection with Kentucky.
Philip and Anna sent their two eldest sons to America just before their 14th birthday to avoid service in the German Army. The boys stayed with Anna's sister, who was living near Oberlin, Ohio. Philip and Anna joined their children in America in 1853. They brought their youngest son, Martin, who was about two years old, with them.
When the boys were grown, George went to Michigan, Peter and Augustus stayed in Ohio, and Edwin went to Kentucky.George and Martin changed the spelling of their name to "Feeback", however the rest of the family continued to use the original spelling of "Fiebach".
from the Wakeman Independent Press, December 7, 1878 " Phillip Fiebach, 70, Vermilion, died last week, poisoned by arsenic getting into baking powder. "
