The name of the family was originally Tauber, signifying a dealer in doves. The name is still retained by a tributary of the main family in Germany, whence the ancestors of the American stock emigrated. A peculiarity of some dialects in Germany, as well as of Pennsylvania German vernacular, is the change of the initial "t" to "d" and the addition of the letter "t" to he suffix "er". Examples of the former change are the transition from Truckenmiller to Druckenmiller, Tiefenwiffer to Diefenderfer, Taubler to Deibler; the latter transition will be noticed in the change of Boger to Bogert, Herber to Herbert, Schiffer to Schiffert. Both of these changes appear in this family name. The first transition was made to Taubert, subsequently changed to Teubert. Other recent forms of the name are Deuber, Deuver, Deiber, Deubert, and Deibert. Thus these various forms appear in the names of Catherin Tauber (Mrs. John Adam Roeder) who came to America in 1724; Rev. R. Tauber, Hosmer, S. Dak; Wilhelm Taubert (1811-1891), a prominent musician in Berlin, and composer of "Rinderliender;" Emil Taubert (1844-1895), teacher in Fredrick Wilhelm's Gymnasium, dramatist and poet; Michael Teubert, later Michael Deiber, the first of the family in Lowhill; Michael Deiver, the first to settle in Berks County; Rev. S. Deuber, Mankato,Minn; Rev. G, Deiber, Elma, Ia.

An acquaintance and former German citizen, insists that the reference to doves above really means carrier pigeons. Also, it must be remembered that the Germans had a different alphabet and a different pronunciation, when Michael Deibert was in the Revolutionary War, on one occasion his name was spelled "Dipert," which would be the English phonic equivalent to the German Deibert.
