    The Deishers of German descent were genteel, pioneer stock, pleasant, well-connected, frugal and over the years, determined to overcome obstacles pleasantly. Most of all are staunch Methodists or Baptists. The first Deishers to appear in Virginia were Jacob and Christiana, both born in Germany, and who appeared to have first settled in Pennsylvania. The first Deishers to appear in Botetourt records are their three sons: John, Jacob and Peter. John married Susannah Stretes, Jacob married Christina Rule, and Peter married Polly Sheets.
