I am guessing that my Groff/Grove/Groves and Marquess/Marquis ancestors were neighbors of your Parkins/Perkins ancestors. Here is the information of their wedding and another posting about Rev. Streit.

".... Mariages 1771-1825, Compiled and Edited by Eliza Timberlake Davis, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, 1973. "Groves, Solomon and Fanny Marquis, May 10, 1798. C. S." p 37.

Frederick County, Virginia Marriage Bonds" by Joan D. Hackett, B.A., M.S. , M.L.S. and Rebecca H. Good, C.G. "9 May 1798 Soloman Groves & Fanny Marquess. Bondsman, Isaac Marquess." page 19.

Jackpot: Rev, Christian Streit was the first Lutheran Minister bn in US.,NJ on 6/7/1749. He settled in Winchester 7/19/1785, Lutheran church on two acres on edge of city,now in the Mt. Hebron cemetary. His first sermon was on 7/25/1785. I spent several days in Winchester researching my Sauvain family of Abraham and Lydia Sauvain who came from Switzerland, Their name changed from Sauvain to Sovain to Sovine.Their infant son Abraham buried in Winchester. Rev. Streit performed the service.This may be a good source. best regards, Earl"
