Andrew & brother Jacob were the Progenitors of Duesler, Duessler, Dueßler from 1752 Germany to America.
The name as I understand it: In the Church congregation, carried a (4-5 foot long stick or rod with a feather on one end & a bald knob on the other). When attendees dozed-off; A Dueßler would tickle them awake with the feather end of the stick. If the attendee would become more fully asleep the Dueßler would use the Knobbed blunt end of the rod to awaken them. Dueßlers were also in charge of keeping the children in order & quiet as to not disrupt the main congregation.
