Thank very much for your kind and timely response. I tend to agree with you about my family being Quakers. Too much has led me to believe otherwise. Two of Adam Deel's grandsons fought in the Civil War. Adam's son Isaac organized a United Brethern church in Illinois in 1849. The area in Marion, Marion County Ohio, where both the Copes and Deels settled in about 1810-1830 was mostly settled by Pennsylvainia Dutch(German speaking). I think Henry Cope was German as well. I have search Gilbert Cope's book on the Copes, and could not find him listed.
There is a German line of the Cope family that did settle in the Franconia, Montgomery Co., Pa. area. So far I haven't tied him to that family either. His birth date(Jan 15, 1790) was calculated from his tombstone where it read: In Memory of/Henry Cope who/Departed This Life/January 21/ AD 1844/Aged 54 years/&6 Days.
