  • Note:
    The earliest record we have of Marks (monarchs) Grove, brother of Christian Grove. is a deed dated 1765, which shows that Joseph Rhodes sold to Marks Grove. 120 acres of land on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River, at the mouth of Elk Lick Run. He was probably married shortly before this time to Susan Roads (Rhodes, Rodes) daughter of the Rev. John Roads, the Mennonite minister. By this marriage, he had two children, David, and Barbara who was born in 1767. Marks Grove married for his second wife, Mary Grove, of Pennsylvania, who was (us cousin, and had twelve additional children. Ln the census, or tax list, taken for Shenandoah County, in 1783, Marks
    is enumerated with ten persons in his family. Marks, at least in his earlier manhood, was a Mennonite; but lt is believed that he has one of the many of that sea who were converted to the beliefs of the Baptist church by the Rev. John Koontz, who was made pastor of the Mill Creek Baptist Church, near the present Luray, about 1775. Two of his children were married by the Rev. Koontz, and this same minister preached Marks funeral in English, while the Rev. Jacob Harshberger, another Baptist minister. preached in German.

    The name of Marks Grove is also to be found on the list of Captain Michael Reader's Company of militia of Shenandoah County, in the Revolutionary War Records of Virginia, recently published by Gaius Marcus Bambaugh. Otber names in this list are those of Christly Bumgardner, John Limebach, Peter Limebach, Michael Rodes lsaac Strickler, Joseph Strickler, Benjamin stickler and Christly (Christians) Grove. At a court held in Shenandoah County, the 30th day of May, 1782, an Act of Assembly concerning public claims was produced to the court and read and thereupon the Court proceeded to certify claims. including that of Marks Grove for 325 pounds of beef. This claim was probably for beef sold for the use of the Revolutionary Army.

    Marks Grove was a farmer and lived with his large family just east of the Massanutten Mountains, on the bank of the South Shenandoah River, in what is now Page County, Virginia He died September 1818, and was buried on the old Rhodes farm. He left no will, but the settlement of his estate and the detailing the public auction of his possessions which took place on the 4th of November, 1808 are on record at the courthouse of Shenandoah County, Virginia. Copies of
    these old records are even below. Henry Brumbach was the administrator of the estate which was divided among his thirteen heirs. A deed, dated August 14, 1815, shows that Henry Brumbach, who married Mary, a daughter of Marcus Grove, bought from the heirs, the old home property, which was on the "West side of the South River of Shenandoah, containing 388 acres, formerly granted to Marks Grove in three tracts"

    Although many of the children and grandchildren of Marks Grove left the Shenandoah Valley And travelled over the mountains to the pioneer wilderness of Ohio and indiana before 1820, there are still quite a few descendants of both Marks Grove and his brother, Christian, living in the neighborhood of the ancestral home in Virginia. Where once there was only a narrow indian trail, leading into an isolated valley. there is now the famous Lee Highway from Washington, who'll passes over the Blue Ridge, down into the Page County valley and on through Luray and the Massanutten Gap, to meet the great Shenandoah Valley pike at New Market. Lately the government has built the much advertised Skyline Drive along the crest of the Blue Ridge, from which
    the tourist may look down into the lovely green valley where the ancestors of the Groves, Rhodes, Bumgardners. Brumbacks, Ruffners, streamers and others settled. Far below, little woods and groves show where farm houses are sheltered, while curving lines of trees outline the course of the Hawksbill and the Shenandoah, and the shadows of drifting clouds pass over the checkerboard patterns of the fields.
