looking for ELIAS DEITRICH

I am at a brickwall and need suggestions and help. My Gt Gt Grandfather was ELIAS DEITRICH, and all I have is that he was born somewhere in Pennsylvania on or about 12 February, 1816. The next record I have of him is when his first son, Levi Deitrich, was born about 1838 in Ashland County, Ohio. From there, they moved on to Defiance, Ohio and ELIAS and his wife, Lucy Ann had the following children: Catharine, Johathan, Sidney, Franklin, Charles, and Mary. He died in Defiance 19 Sept., 1884. My line comes from Levi, and then from his first son, another Elias. Apparently the first name Elias is a common name on my line. I have found an Elias Detrick indexed in the 1820 census of Northampton Co. Pennsylvania in Smithfield township, and his wife was nammed Effie. They had 11 children and in the middle, they had a child named ELIAS. I am trying to find out if there is anyway someone can tell me how to determine if this child of theirs named Elias would have been born about 1816. I am trying to trace my line back into Germany, and right now I am brickwalled at 1816. I know this is sounds really confusing with so many common names, but I am desperate. Any help is really appreciated. Thanks... Frank Deitrich
