Spelling was something which was fast and loose until the 20th century. Names were very fluid and might be spelled 3 or 4 different ways in the same document. The word "clerk" was pronounced "clark" for a long time and it's possible this is what happened with your Parigo line. I suspect it did originate with the Perrigos. I have nothing specific to your Robert but it is possible he is connected with the following:
James Perrigo possibly s/o Thomas Perrigo / Pherigo
b. c 1776 Sussex Co, NJ
d. 1852 Guernsey Co, OH
m. c 1798
Mary Jane ____
b. c 1776
Issac b. 28Nov1800 d. 1Oct1871 m. Sarah Hartley
Martha b. 1Sep1803 d. 1896 m. Jonathan Garrett
Margaret b. 17Jun1805 d. m. Henry Greer
James b. c 1807 d.
Sarah b. 12Apr1809 d. 16Jun1847 m. Enoch Galloway
Mariah b. 31Jul1811 d. + 1870 m. John Ward
Nancy b. 29Jan1813 d. m. David Ward
John b. 22Sep1815 d. 1885 m. Mathilda Clary
George b. d. m. MaryAnn Indecot

James sr. was of Newtown, Sussex, NJ 1793
of PA 1811
of Belmont Co, OH 1813
of Guernsey Co, OH
There is no Robert in the list of children I have for Isaac & John but I have nothing for children of James jr or George, so Robert may belong to one of them. These are not my family, just info I've come across. Happy hunting.
