While out researching the other day I took the liberty of checking Ziegel's Church records on Tesh - there are NONE!

But I did find these - all burials -

Lehigh Zion - Lower Macungie Twp. - Lehigh Co.
Desch, Adam b. 29 Feb 1736 d. 29 Jun 1810
Desch, Maria Gertrude, wife of Adam Desch, b. 6 Mar 1740 d. 3 Jul 1826
Desch, Jacob b. 13 Apr 1761 d. 2 Feb 1806
Desch, Philip b. 20 Dec 1799 d. 13 Apr 1819

St. Paul's Cemetery, Trexlertown, Lehigh Co.
Desch, Lydia nee Kuder wife of Wilhelm Desch b. 14 Jul 1799 d. 1 Jan 1878
Desch, Wilhelm b. 26 Nov 1795 d. 18 Dec 1866

Solomon's Church Cemetery - Macungie
A. Maria Newmeier (nee Desch) b. 27 Mar 1792 wife of Andreas Newmeier d. 25 Sept 1862
Catherine Newmeier (nee Desch) b. 20 Feb 1790 wife of Jacob Newmeier d. 5 May 1866
Jacob Newmeier son of Conrad and Christina Newmeier b. 1 Jan 1872 husband of Catharina Desch d. 28 Jun 1861

All 3 cemeteries are in fairly close proximity to each other indicating possible ties to be made here. Good luck!
