  Tabanus: Carl Wemmers (1845 – 18 September 1882) was a German chess master.

He shared 2nd at Cologne 1877 (Johannes Zukertort won), took 8th at Frankfurt 1878 (Louis Paulsen won), took 12th at Leipzig 1879 (the 1st DSB Congress, Berthold Englisch won), tied for 3rd-5th at Braunschweig 1880 (L. Paulsen won), took 12th at Wiesbaden 1880, and tied for 13-14th in the Berlin 1881 chess tournament (the 2nd DSB Congress, Joseph Henry Blackburne won).

Apr-07-16  zanzibar: <On the 18th ult. died at Cologne, Herr Carl Wemmers, at the age of thirty-seven years after a long and severe illness. We are wont to connect Chess with longevity, and the deceased would, to all appearances, not have made a lamentable exception to that rule but for a trifling accident which led through neglect to pyaemia. Herr Wemmers' name became first known in the annals of Chess in connection with the meetings of the West German Association about eighteen years ago. During his stay at Paris he frequented the Cafe de la Regence, where he contested in consultation with Mr. Hoffer a match against the late Herr Neumann, the allies losing only by the odd game. On his return to Cologne, his native city, he became one of the Chess leaders of West Germany, although the time he was able to devote to the game was very limited, on account of his extensive mercantile occupation as partner of the parental house. After taking prizes at different Chess meetings of the West German Association, he entered the first class by winning the chief Tournament held at Leipsic in 1877, in connection with the Anderssen Jubilee Festival. From that moment he was debarred, according to the regulations, from all but Master Tournaments, which he entered without exception, viz.:—Cologne, 1877; Frankfort, 1878; Leipsic, 1879; Wiesbaden, 1880; Brunswick, 1880; and Berlin, 1881. The beginning of his fatal illness precluded the zealous master from entering the lists at Vienna. The Chess world has lost a valiant knight, and we deplore the loss of a dear and intimate friend.>
