Looking for my Quaker ancesters

I am looking the families of both my 4th gr.grandfathers. Both lived in Marion County Ohio in the early to mid 1800's. Both were said to have been born in Pennsylvania in the late 1700's. Both died in Marion County Ohio. Both were believed to be German in ancestry.
Adam Deel, b. 3 Mar 1780, d. 8 Sept 1848. The spelling could have been any variable of the Deel Name, such as Diehl, Deihl, Deal, ect.
Henry Cope, b. 15 Jan 1790, d. 21 Jan 1844. I was not able to connect him to the Oliver Cope line which was the English line.
My father always said that our family were direct descendents of the Pennsylvania Dutch Quakers. I am not sure if that was from the Cope line or the Deel line.
