This is not my direct line but the Nelson family m. into the Crews/Cruse and Shoemaker/Shewmaker families and they are my ancestors.
Maybe we can help each other. In trying to determine who the father of Milly (Mary Amelia) Cruse is who married a John J. Nelson in Daviess Co. KY in 1822 I traced the line backwards and found a Wm. Joseph Nelson b. 7 Dec. 1770 d. 06 May 1839 and Mary Jane Jolly b. 07 Dec. 1776 d. 03 July 1839 Ownesboro Co., KY. This couple were m. about 1800 in Owensboro. Mary Jane was from Union SC. They had 7 children some born in SC some in Daviees Co., KY. I believe the two boys John Jolly Nelson and James m. Cruse sisters Susannah and Milly. I am almost certain about Susannah and only speculating about Milly.
If you have developed your line any further let me know.
