  1. This is wonderful. My great, great, great great great-grandfather Isaac Crouse and his wife Nancy to moved to Webster County in 1851 and had a farm at one time back in the at Brushy Creek. One of his children was named Andrew Jackson Crouse. I am looking to contact anyone that remembers any of the family. Linda
