As of 1830, Peter Cruse was also known as Peter Cruse Sr. listed as Peter Cruse Sr.15 He was census 1830 in 1830 at Union County, Illinois; Cruse Peter Sr. 1 male 15-19, 1 male 20-29, 1 male 50-59; 2 females 10-14, 3 females 15-19, 1 female 50-59
The male and female 50-59 would be Peter and Caty (Peter would be 59). The two 10-14 females probably were Margaret (age 13) and Leah (age 14). The 3 females 15-19 were probably Bernice (age 16), Rachel (age 18), and maybe wife of unknown male 15-19?. Don't know who the male 15-19 was, perhaps a grandchild?. The 20-29 male could be Peter, Aaron, or Moses.16 Peter Cruse was also known as Peter Gruss.8 Peter Cruse was also known as Peter Cruce.14 He was census 1840 in September 1840 at Union County, Illinois; Peter Cruse Sr. 1 male 20 thru 29; 1 male 40 thru 49; 1 female 0 thru 4; 2 females 20 thru 29.

Don't know who the 1 child 0 thru 4 is -- perhaps Lucinda Lingle who appears in 1850 census with Peter Cruse Sr. Don't know who the 1 male 20 thru 29 is.

Died
Nov 19 AD 1857
Aged
about 86 years.8,7,5 He was buried at Saint Johns Lutheran Cemetery, Dongola, Union County, Illinois.8,7 He Peter Cruse was born 1771 in Rowan Co, NC, a few months after his family settled there. He grew up on his father's farm learning that trade as well as those of blacksmithing and wagon making. When he was about five the Revolutionary WAr broke out and probably enjoyed telling his grandchildren of that period in American history. Peter probably spoke German, but knew some English. He married when he was 25 in Rowan County to Catharina 'Caty' Boger on Aug. 27, 1796. When Peter was 47 he and his brother, John Adam, and several other North Carolina families formed a group to go to Illinois. Peter had 11 children at this time-- Henry born June 27, 1797 (he came to Illinois a year later in 1819) Sarah born Jan 20, 1799 and died as a young girl, Elizabeth or 'Betsy' b. Dec 12, 1800, Moses b. Sept. 6, 1802, Aaron b. March 24, 1805, Peter W. B Dec. 6, 1807, Sophia b. Jan. 25, 1809, Rachel b. Nov. 15, 1811, Bernice b. March 15, 1814 died young, Leah b. March 26, 1815, and Margaret b. Aug. 16, 1817. Peter is believed to have had a daughter Roseanna or 'Sena' b. June 29, 1820 after coming to Illinois. (Paul Dillow has since changed his mind on this. In a 9 Sep 1995 chart Paul now says Sena was the dau of Jacob W. Cruse and Elizabeth Hileman, thus agreeing with B. J. Lawrence) Peter setled with his family in southern Union County Ill in Millcreek township. Peter's wife Caty died there and he married again at the age of 73 in Union County Ill to Mary Flavington on Nov. 28, 1844. Peter was a member of Organ Church in North Carolina, and helped organize St. Johns Lutheran Church in Illinis. He died Nov. 19, 1857 and was buried in the cemetery next to the church. Letter, 31 May, 1984, from Darrell (Dexter?) to Mrs. Erma Rolph, copy in possesion of Mrs. Erma Rolph Family of Johann Philip Cruse, B. J. Lawrence (1995) - On 1 Feb 1798 Peter's father, Philip Cruse (Sr.) sold to Peter for 200 pounds 229-1/2 acres on Sheney Creek next to Philip Cruse, as witnessed by Peter's brother-in-law, John Berger. Peter sold this land to John Bost on 14 Jul 1819. ON 5 Sep 1805 the heirs of Philip Cruse, Sr let Peter Cruse have 229 acres for 400 pounds. This property was adjacent to the property sold to George Boat in 1819 and was sold to Peter at the same time. However, Peter was already in IL by this time. In 1818 Peter and his family with his brother, Adam, with his family, moved through Kentucky to Union County, IL. Peter settled in Mill Creek Township in 1819 and on 24 Oct 1820 purchased land. Peter was a farmer as well as a blacksmith and wagonmaker. He made plows and wagons needed by farmers for miles around. Peter and Caty experienced all the hardships of pioneer life and saw the country where they settled develop from wilderness to productive gardens. See History of Union Alexander and Pulaski Cties, IL by WH Perrin, 1883.6 He was 4C50EB1833A7AD4CBD24D9AD2CB29F095FE9.22

Some sources inthe past have indicated that Johann Phillip Grüss was born 29 December 1722 in or near Weisbaden, Germany. At one time Bernard W Cruse Sr reported that Phillip's parents were Philip Adolph and Maria Catherine Grüss and there were records to substantiate this at the 'Lutheran Church at Weisbaden.'

Cruse Descendants, Vol I, 8/485.3,1 He was farmer.2 Johann Phillip Grüss was also known as Johann Philupus Philip Cruse.2 Johann Phillip Grüss was also known as Philip Kress. Johann immigrated, on 22 October 1754.

IN 1792, that lower part in Mecklenbug Co was split off to form Cabarus Co with Concord as its county seat. According to Order #549 dated 8 Sep 1778, James Brandon, Entry Officer of Claims for Lands in the Co of Rowan in the state of North Carolina ordered a survey for Phillip Grüss for a Tract or Parcel of Land containing five hundred acres lying that Co.

Cruse Descendants Vol 1, p. 8/485.1 He was buried at Zion (Organ) Lutheran Church, Salisbury, Rowan County, North Carolina.2 He 'Johann Philipus 'Philip' Cruse (Grüs in German) was born Dec 29, 1722 in Germany. When Philip was 32 years old, he left his homeland of Weisbaden, Germany, and folowed the Rhine River north to Rotterdam, Holland. He waited there for several months for a ship to bring him to America. Probably about August 1754 Philip boarded the ship, 'Henrietta.' The trip through the Straits of Dover and across the Atlantic to America, then English colonies, took about six to eight weeks. The conditions were usually very unsanitary and food and fresh water was often lacking during the last weeks of the journey. He arrived at the port city of Philadelphia, Pa., Oct 22, 1754. This October our family will have been in America for 230 years. Philip was taken to the City Hall where he signed an oath of allegiance to the King of England. Philip was now over 4,000 miles from his home in Germany. He bought a farm and settled in what is now called Montgomery County, PA, about 60 miles north of Philadelphia. It is thought that he married after coming to America and not before to Anna Catharina. Her maiden name is unknown. Philip was a Lutheran and member of St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church near his home. He and Catharina baptized their first three children there. About 15 years after he came to America, Philip moved his family South to Rowan County, NC in 1771 Philip was about 49, his younger wife Catharina was about 36 and his children Magdaline (b July 2, 1760) was 11, John Adam (b Oct 13, 1761) was 10, Andreas (b. Feb 24, 1763) was 8, Anna Mariah (b 1767) was 4, and Margaretha (b Oct 6, 1769) was only 2. The trip covered 500 miles and took about 2 months to complete. After Philip had harvested his fall crops, they loaded the wagon with their few belongings and prepared to disembark. Philip must have 'squatted' on his land for several years as he did not purchase land in North Carolina for 12 years. On Oct 10, 1783 he bought 458 acres in Rowan County near the Cabarrus County line. In the meantime, Peter was born in 1771, soon after their arrival. Sussannah was born April 22, 1773, Henry was born about 1774 and Elizabeth on March 7, 1776. In 1774 Philip had helped organize the Organ Lutheran Church a few miles from his home. Philip made his last will and testament May 3, 1804 and died a few months later. He was buried in the Organ Cemetery. Philip's family scattered all over America -- Magdalene went to Indiana with her husband, Adam came to Illinois, Andrew stayed in NC, Anna Mariah with her family went to Ohio, Margaretha stayed in North Carolina, Peter came to Illinois, Sussanah stayed in NC, Henry went to Indiana, and some of Elizabeth's children went to Mississippi.

Family of Johann Philip Cruse, by B. J. Lawrence (25 Mar 1995). Unsubstantiated sources state that according to records of the Lutheran Church in Wiesbaden, Germany, Johann Philip's parents were Philip Adolph and Maria Catherine Gruss. At the time of Philip's birth, and for over one hundred years, Germany had suffered severely from religious persecutions and political wars. One can surmise that these devestating conditions in his homeland were, at least in part, the stimuli taht decided Philip to become a part of the tide of German emigrants who sought refuge and opportunity in the new colonies of America. When Philip was about thirty-two years of age, two years before the Seven Years War (1756-1763) in Germany, he left his homeland in search of a new home across the seas. According to the book Pennsylvania German Pioneers, A Publication of the Original Lists of Arrivals in the Port of Philadelphia from 1727 to 1808, by Ralph Beaver Strassburger, LL.D., President of the Pennsylvania German Society; Edited by William John Hinke, Ph.D, D.D., Volume I, 1727-1775, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, MD, 1975 & 1980 - 'Philip Gross (as shown on List 226 A - 'Foreigners imported') or Philipus Gruss (as shown in List 226 C -- 'took usual Qualifications to the Government') arrived at the Port of Philadelphia, PA on the Ship Henrietta, October 22, 1754, with Captain John Ross from Rotterdam, but last from Cowes, with passengers from Franconia, Wirtenberg and Hesse. (In the German language the Cruse name was spelled as Grus, Gruss, or Grusse.) When the Henrietta arrived in port, many of the passengers were 'ill of Fevers' and all were held under quarantine some days on board ship. 'The Fever with which these People are affected is of the Putrid kind, arising from corrupted Air and Bad Dyet, but is not accompanyed with the usual symptoms of a high Degree of Virulence, and we are of the opinion if the sick were taken out of the Vessel and put in separate Lodgings, there would be little Danger of their communicating any infection and taht the Ship might afterwards with Safety to the Inhabitants of the City be permitted to come up to it.' This was the first ship from which any danger was suspected.' Philip apparantely came to America as a single man. There is no known record of the marriage or the last name of his wife, Anna Catharina. There are those who suppose that she may have been a Bastian. The God-parents of some of their children were listed as a couple with the name 'Bastian' or 'Bostian.' God-parents were very often close kin. Philip chose the colony of Pennsylvania as his new home, perhaps because it was generally looked upon as a place of religious liberty and a place of refuge. Records in St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Red Hill, Montgomery County, show that Philip and Catharina were members and at least four of their children were born in Red Hill and baptized in St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 1760-1764. These records now appear on the Old German records there. Before 1770, Johann Philip and his wife Anna Catharina moved their family from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, to Rowan County, North Carolina,a nd took up land and settled about eight miles east of where the city of Salisbury now stands. There are records of many land transactions by Philip in the Rowan and Cabarrus Counties land books. The Organ Lutheran Church of Salisbury became the church home for this family. In the old German records of this church are many dates of vital events in the lives of Philip and his family. In the History of Rowan County, NC, by Jethro Rumple, Philip is named as one of the members, devoted to the church, who helped in the construction of the church buildingin 1774. Over 200 years later, this building stands and the church still serves the community. Possibly because of difficulty of spelling the name 'Gruss' with variations and misspellings, Philip Anglicized his name to Cruse. The word 'gruss' in German means greeting. Germans at the Moravian Archives at Easton, PA, indicated that Johann Philip Cruse came from Westphalia in Germany; that this name of Gruss sounds like Westphalia. On October 10, 1783, Philip bought 458 acres of land on what is now the Rowan-Cabarrus County line and on February 1, 1798, Philip let his son, Peter, both of Rowan County, have for 200 pounds, 229 1/2 acres on Sheney Wolf's Creek next to Philip's land.The following is the will of Johann Philip Cruse - 'In the name of God Amen! I Philip Cruse Sen of the County of Rowan and State of N Carolina being very weak in body but of sound mind & memory & calling to mind the mortality of my body & knowing that it is appointed unto all men once to die, do mak & ordain this my last will and test. That is to say principally I recommend my soul to God who gave it me & my body to the earth to be buried in a decent Christian burial at the discretion of my executors & as touching my worldly estate I give & dispose of them in manner as followed. First I give to my wife Catharina my four head of cattle - which my son Henry is to feed, likewise the upper part of the meadow also my house & all the furniture & a note of fifty pounds, which my son Henry is to pay to me also what money I have in hand to the proper use & behooof of my beloved wife Catharina & to each of my other heirs, I give each & every of them one english shilling to be paid to them after my death & I do constitute & appoint my son Peter Cruse & my wife Catharina executors of this my last will & test & do hereby make void all other wills made by me heretofore. Ratifying & declaring this & no other to be my last will & test in witnes whereof I have hereunto set my hand & seal this 3th day of May 1804. Philip X Cruse (his mark) Seal; signed, sealed, and deliverd in the presence of us Henry Casper John Linn Test. On Sep 5, 1805, Henry Cruse, Peter Eddleman (Elizabeth), John Berger (Margaretha), of Rowan County, NC; Adam Cruse, Andrew Cruse, George Goodman (Susannah), and Jacob Lingle (Anna Maria) of Cabarrus County, NC; and Elias Meyers (Magdalena) of Burke County, NC, the heirs of Philip Cruse, conveyed his land lying on the Rowan-Cabarrus County line. Could there be two Philip Cruse families intermingled here? One seems to be in Philadelphia arriving on October 22, 1754; the other is getting married 24 Mar 1754, Sherman's (St. David's) Church, Manchester, York Co, PA.

John Berger (Margaretha Cruse's husband), of Rowan County, North Carolina, Adam Cruse, Andrew Cruse, George
Goodman (Susannah Cruse's husband), and Jacob Lingle (Anna Maria Cruse's husband) of Cabarrus County, North Carolina, and Elias Meyers ( Magdalena Cruse's husband) of
Berk County, North
Carolina, the heirs of Philip Cruse, conveyed his land lying on the Rowan-Cabarrus
County line.9 He was mentiond with Henry C. Cruse and Susanna Cress Family of Johann Philip Cruse (1995) - In 1794 Henry and Susanna were married by Pastor Carl Gottlieb Storch in Organ Luth Ch in Salisbury, Rowan County, NC. Twenty yrs earlier Henry's father Johann Philip Cruse had helped in the construction of the church building, which still stands and serves the community. There is a land entry in Rowan County, NC Sept 16, 1805, wherein Henry and the other heirs of Johann Philip Cruse, deceased, let Peter Cruse have 229 acres of land for 400 pounds (as said deceased had bound himself on Feb 4, 1803, for that amount to Henry Cruse who endorsed it to Peter Cruse, his brother). Shortly after the death of his father in 1805, Henry C., with his wife, Susannah, and prob five children, left NC and moved to Hamilton, OH. He joined his sister and brother-in-law, Anna Maria and Jacob Lingle, who two years earlier ahd left North Carolina and were already in Butler County OH. Nov 21, 1806, Henry entered land in Butler County, Range 3, Township 1 The 1807 census of Butler County lists Henry in Ross Township. At least one child was born in Butler County; a son, Henry, born Feb 6, 1812. In Oct 1816, Henry went to Daviess County, IN. It is not kown whether he was the first of his family in IN, or, once again, joined a sister and brother-in-law, Magdalena and Elias Myers who also were in Daviess County in the very early 1800's. On Feb 15, 1817, his brother Adam, acted as agent for Henry and sold his land in Cabarrus County, NC, and on Oct 25, 1817, Henry entered land in Martin County (orig Daviess County), Range 3W, Township 3N. Henry, however, relinquished this land to the Government for failure to complete payments. The 1820 census for IN shows Henry in Deleware County, however, by June 1820 he was in Washington Township. He went up White River in a boat with his family and Martin McCoy and family to within eight miles of Indianapolis, and the rest of the way in wagons. He made his home for several years in the woods near where the Wabash crosses Falls Creek. Henry seemed to have lost much of his property by endorsing for friends. In 1824 he went to IL; first to Montgomery County. He later made his way to Tazewell County where he settled on the Mackinow River, near Peoria, when it was Fort Clark. Some historians state that he died there at age 65. Susanna survived Henry some years. The 1850 census for IN shows her at age 76 living in the household of their son, Solomon, in Indianapolis where she died. See History of Indianapolis and Marion County, IN 1884 and Commemmorative Biographical Record of Prominent and Representative Men of Indianapolis and Vicinity, 1908.

     Anna Catherina ? was born circa 1726 at Germany.2 She was born in 1735 at Germany.1 She lived; PA, NC.1 She married Johann Phillip Grüss at Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, say November 1754.3 As of say November 1754,her married name was Grüss.3 As of November 1754,her married name was Cruse.1 They resided at Pennsylvania between 1759 and 1764. "He evidently lived near Red Hill, halfway between Philadelphia and Allentown, PA, during the period of 1759-1764 where he attended the above-named Evangelical Lutheran Church of Upper Milford, Pennsylvania, now St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church, and he and his wife Catherine had four of their children baptized there.
