Re: Anderson Cruse - any updates?
Ah ha! So there is a will for a Thomas Crews in Howard county, in 1828! And it wouldn't mention a son Anderson if his son was already dead... Nancy, her two girls, her parents, Henry and Sally Lynch and others of the Lynch clan left Madison county, KY and arrived in Howard county, MO sometime between 1824 and 1830 census. This Thomas could have gone with them or before them, if he were her father-in-law and that's why he disappears from Madison county, KY tax records the same year that Anderson dies...Who is listed as Thomas's heirs? Or his executors?
The Anderson Crews in Amherst county, VA I once thought could be my Anderson's father, but if I'm remembering correctly, he couldn't be because of age or family members listed with him in the census for a year that my Anderson and his family were already in Kentucky...I once thought that maybe my Anderson's wife Nancy went back to Amherst to live with her father-in-law but that didn't line up with the census for 1830 either...I've got to do more searching here and pull out my stuff again...
