The name Deters is a patronymical name and stands for "son of Dieter" or Theodore or Diehl. As such it's hard to say who belongs to whom, just like the Johnsons or the Peters-families.

Many families in Germany where called Deters and were not related at all. Of all these families many descendents emigrated to the USA. If you want to know more about the Kleine Deters-family who changed back to Deters when they moved to Michigan see my home-page at http://www.gironet.nl/home/lpck
