PRISCILLA McCallen and "Newton" Rust...any info??

My gg-grandparents were Joseph Newton Rust and Priscilla McCallen. They had several children, but I only know of three. Minnie Rust and John Henry Rust, both b. in PA and my g-grandfather, Wesley, b. in ILL. This would have been in the early 1800's-late 1700's.
"Newton" was a carpenter who traveled ahead of the railroads, building train depots as the trains went in.
This is the furthest back I can get on my dad's paternal side. Can anyone help??
