Dear Jeff,
This Raspy Cricket in the family Gryllacrididae is a Carolina Leaf Roller,
Camptonotus carolinensis, which you can verify by comparing your individual to this image posted to BugGuide.  Furthermore, your individual is a female as evidenced by the long ovipositor at the end of her abdomen.  The commom name is because, according to BugGuide:  “Bites through leaf in order to form flap. Flap is folded over, edge is pulled down with legs, and then edges are glued together with silk from gland on mouth. Sometimes uses the pods of Bladdernut, Staphylea trifolia, as a shelter instead of a leaf.”

Thank you Daniel for the response !!!!   Very nice service you have there !!  Appreciate !!
