I just found the marriage record of William JOHNS and Elizabeth BROGKDON [sic] at St. Paul's Church on 19 Apr 1760.
As I have a 5th great-grandmother named Elizabeth who was the widow of William JOHNS and enumerated in the 1790 census of Philadelphia, I am inclined to believe that this is their marriage record.
Elizabeth later moved to New York City, Stamford, Connecticut, and Clermont/Adams County, Ohio with her daughter, Sarah/Sally, and son-in-law, Joseph Marie Genoways/Ginouves.
I have these notes:
