Just on the chance that you haven't already seen this information by now (one year later) I will enter it.
"Frederick County, Virginia" Settlement and Some First Families of Back Creek Valley, 1730-1830; Wilmr L. Kerns, Ph.D.:
Page 555 - "Streit Family of Green Spring - The Streit surname was well-know in Frederick county during the 18th and 19th centuries. Persons who have conducted genealogical research in the county marriage records have no doubt encountered the name of the Reverend Christian Streit (1748-1812). Streit, who pastored the Lutheran Church in Winchester and preached across the rural landscape, was known as the first Lutheran pastor who was born on American soil. also, Streit's journal has been preserved by the archives Division of Handley Library in Winchester. There is no record of Rev. Streit preaching at the Old Stone Church at Green Spring. the Warm springs that was cited in his journal is located in Berkeley Springs, Morgan County, West virginia."
"Another Streit family appeared during the early 1800s in the green spring and White Hall section of Frederick County. These people were Methodists, but were later affiliated with the United brethren in Christ, which is now merged into the United Methodist Church. Charles Streit (1782-1825) was a son of William Streit of Bedford County, Pennsylvania. It is believed, but not proven, that Charles Streit and the Rev. Christian Streit belonged to the same family root, going back to earlier generations in New York or New Jersey."
There follows further information Charles and Catherine (Fries) Streit and their children.
