Peter CLUSEY
Maria __?__
Husband:  Peter CROUSE / CRUSIE / CRUSE / CLUSEY / CLUSY / LOUCEY
Birth:  1790 or 1791/2, Italy
Occupation:  carpenter

The fact that Peter's surname was pronounced in two syllables (see census records below) strongly suggests he was German because the terminal "e" is not silent in German, while the English surname, CROUSE, is pronounced in one syllable.  And despite being born in Italy, Peter's surname does not seem to correspond to any Italian surname.  The surname CROUSE was not uncommon in Philadelphia, and of course, Germans were very common.  Descendants believe the surname is CLUSEY, so that appears to be the spelling settled upon.
