I have a listing for a VIENNA Grose, could be a misspelling. The date is good, too: she was born March 1 1859 and was the daughter of Pleasant Grose and Martha Patsy Lee. Pleasant was born 1818 died 1904. His father Simon was born in Surry Co NC and died in KY. If this is your Vilenna, I have no marriage info on her, but her lineage would be:

Vienna/Vilenna Grose
Pleasant Grose b. 1818 + Martha Patsy Lee
Simon Grose b. 1783 Surry NC +Mary Owen
Theobald Groseb. 1744 PA + Barbara Eddleman
Simon Grose b. 1711 b. + Dorothea ?

Simon was the immigrant, arrived 1741 in PA from Rotterdam. So the "PA Dutch" label would apply. Does this match up? I have a little bit more on the Lees as well.
