FIRST GENERATION

1.  Jeremiah (Jerry) W. CLOUD Sr.1,2,3 was born between 1782 and 1786 in Wilkes County, Georgia.  He died on MAR 14 1861 in Austin County, Texas.  He was buried in Austin County, Texas.

    Jeremiah's obituary says he was born in Twiggs cty GA in 1784.  But that county wasn't formed until 1809, it being formed from Wilkinson cty (itself being created from Creek cession in 1803).  Some believe he was born in Wilkes GA which was called St. Paul Parish before its formation in 1777.  We know that he lived in SC prior to his son H.G.W.'s marriage to Mary McDADE in 1828.

    In 1729, Carolina was divided into both North and South Carolina and in 1732 part of SC became a part of Georgia.  The old 96th District in SC was divided into 5 counties in 1795, among them were Edgefield and Spartanburg.

    A birthplace of Spartanburg has been suggested.  The book  "YOUNGBLOOD - ARMSTRONG AND ALLIED FAMILIES" by Frances Youngblood and Foelle Youngblood Bonner, say on p. 301, next-to-last paragraph: "Mary McDade ... married ... H.G.W. Cloud, son of Jeremiah and Elizabeth Cloud, FORMERLY OF SOUTH CAROLINA. (Mar. Bk C, p. 311, Montgy, Ala.)  ..... (CAPS mine).  Additionally,  the McDADES they traveled with and married into were from the Spartanburg region.
    Many living in Georgia at the beginning of the 1812 War fled to other states.  If Jeremiah lived in SC as stated, it would have probably been between 1812 and 1816, for we know he was in Alabama in 1816 and is on the 1830 census there.
    He was married to Elizabeth (_____) about 1801.  He is listed on the 1830, Montgomery AL, census as between 40 and 49 years.  The ages he gave on the 1850 and 1860 censuses from Austin County, TX indicate he was born in 1786 though the year of 1784 is specified in his obituary. Moved from GA to Alabama about 1816 and is listed on the 1830 Montgomery County Alabama census.
    A Jeremiah Cloud purchased land in Montgomery county as recorded on Certificates No. 11336 and No. 11337, both dated November 14th 1833, and both for 80.1 acres and on Certificate No. 1665, dated April 5th 1837 for forty acres.  These purchases were in the same area and time as others made by his relatives so it is supposed that these purchases were made by this Jeremiah Cloud.
    He moved to the Republic of Texas prior to October of 1837 and received a 2nd class Headright grand from the Republic.
    His obituary appeared in the April 6, 1861 Hempstead Courier and reads as follows:
"  Died, On Caney creek in this county, on the 14th ult., MR. JEREMIAH CLOUD, Sr., In the 77th year of his age.

"  Mr. C. was born in Twiggs Co., Georgia, in 1784; emigrated to Montgomery Co. Alabama in 1816, when he removed to this State, in which he lived up to the time of his death, sharing her joys and sorrows.

"  He leaves behind him what the best of us aspire to, an unsullied reputation; besides a numerous family, consisting of his first and only wife, who was the partner of his days for sixty years, six children, thirty four grand-children, and twenty-six great grand children; all of whom must be often reminded of his absence, and feel the want of his experienced counsel."

    Elizabeth (_____) was born between 1784 and 1790 in Georgia.  She died before 1874 in Austin County, Texas and was buried in Austin County, Texas.  Jeremiah (Jerry) W. CLOUD Sr. and Elizabeth (_____) had the following children:

+2 i. William J. CLOUD.
+3 ii. Mary CLOUD.
+4 iii. Henry George Washington (H.G.W.) CLOUD.

+8 vii. Elcena L. (E.L.) CLOUD.
+9 viii. Elizabeth CLOUD.

6.  John Clark (J.C.) CLOUD Sr. was born in 1812 or 1815 in Georgia.  His tombstone, which is in a pasture near Milano, Milam County, Texas, says he died in February of 1868 at an age of 56 years, which would make his birth date 1812, but the 1860 census says he is 45, implying dob of 1815.  He came to Texas in 1836 from Alabama.  Enlisted as a private in the Milam Guards in Milam County, Texas in June 1861.  Moved to Comanche, Texas around 1870.
    He was married to Mary Polly GRIFFIN (daughter of John W. GRIFFIN and Nancy (_____)) on JAN 7 1836 in Montgomery, Montgomery County, Alabama.  Ellen Crawford wrote:  "John C Sr and Mary Griffin were married the 7th of Jan 1836 in Montgomery Co AL.  I believe that her father John Griffin came along with Jeremiah for he got a land grant dated the same as Jeremiah's and John's.  They are dated 1839 and states they have been in TX since 1836."
    11  Mary Polly GRIFFIN was born in 1818 in Georgia.  She died before 1874.  Her date of death deduced from the sale  of her land, after her death, in 1874.  John Clark (J.C.) CLOUD Sr. and Mary Polly GRIFFIN had the following children:

    His middle name determined from the probate papers of his father-in-law, Samuel C. BOYD -- Montgomery County, Albama Orphans Court Record "H" pp 473-474:  "Elizabeth Jane Cloud and her husband Willliam Jasper Cloud" .... residents of Pike county.
