The marriages took place in Fray Bentos and the surrounding areas of Uruguay and Argentina. The South American Missionary Society was founded in 1844 as the Patagonian Missionary Society, the name was changed in 1864. In the latter part of the nineteenth century legislation made Protestant missionary work very difficult, and the Society focused more on the provision of chaplaincies for exisiting Protestant communities and seamen.
