I may be able to give you some assistance but I do have a few discrepancies with your data. My information comes from "An Outline of Cruces" by Priscilla Montgomery. Here is what she found regarding Berry Cruce.
"In the 1860 Georgia Census, there was a Berry Cruce in Jackson County, Georgia with a wife and growing family. He had not appeared in the Jackson County 1850 Census but he was born in Georgia and had married Jensie Parmelin Nix and begun his family before we first saw him in 1860. We thought for a long time that he was the right age to be the son of James Hiram Cruce who had lived in Jackson County at one time and had vanished before the 1840 census but we have been unable to find supporting evidence. We are still intrigued with the similarities between Berry's family names and the children of Jesse Cross but much remains unexplained. Berry's children were named, William Thomas, John M., Mary Elizabeth, Delila, Amanda Ella, Mitchell Berry, Victoria, James D. and Mary Ann Cruce. Although as yet we are unable to prove the origin of the Jackson County, Georgia family, we are certain they belong to us.
"Berry Cruce (1826-ca.1910) - Berry first appeared in the Mines District of Jackson County, Georgia in the 1860 Census when his post office designation was Harmony Grove. By that time he was married to Jensie and had six children. In the 1870 Census he was living in the Jefferson Subdivision. In 1880, the census listed him in Randolph's District and Ann, Ella, Victoria and James were still at home. The 1910 census shows Berry living with his son, James D. Cruce, in Gwinnett Co., Georgia. When I visited Jackson County, the old site of the Cruce house was pointed out to us and we were told it was a 9 room house that had belonged to Dr. R. N. Mitchell. A small burying ground with a fence around it was in the back and all the stones appeared to be Mitchell family stones. One was for Maria Mitchell wife of Dr. R. N. Mitchell, 6/9/1843-1/3/1911, and another was for Mitchell, son of R.N. and Maria, 12/12/18724/19/1901.
