18058 William (Indian Bill) Hardin was a noted Indian fighter, mentioned prominently in Perrin's "History of Breckenridge County before 1840", was a captain in the Militia, was nicknamed "Indian Bill" for his prowess against the Indians, and in his obituary is called "Colonel William Hardin?.
    An article called "Interesting History of Indian Bill Hardin", by Henry C. Jolly in the "Breckenridge Democrat", April 25, 1902, states that in August 1779 he and his cousin Sinclair Hardin, and two other companions came to Kentucky and visited the vicinity of Hardinsburg, where William Hardin killed one Indian and his cousin was killed by another. They then visited the country of the present Hardin County, Kentucky, and William was so pleased with the country that he went back to Pennsylvania, gathered a group of 12 families there, and in 1780 they set out for Kentucky, arriving at the present site of Louisville March 6, 1781. They then journeyed back to Hardin's Creek and on March 17, 1781, began clearing the land for Hardin's Fort which later became Hardinsburg, Kentucky.
    It was said that "Indian Bill" was a perfect specimen of a man. He stood 6 feet 4 inches and weighed 240 pounds. He was just about the same size as Simon Kenton (probably the most noted of all the Indian fighters) and it was reported that both men could run all day. No doubt Simon and "Indian Bill" fought against the Indians many times together.  William Hardin and his brothers were raised on the western frontier of Pennsylvania and it was here that they became adept at Indian fighting. You had to if you were to survive.
    William Hardin received grants from the state of Virginia in 1785 for 3800 acres of land, all near the present site of Hardinsburg, Kentucky.

18072 William Bunk Brown was a railway conductor.  His family lived in a house near the track at Brown Crossing just west of Stevenson.  The crossing was named for him.  The house set just a few feet from the railroad track in a curve of the track.  William Bunk and Joanna are buried just west of the Brown Crossing on the right side of the road.  There are no markers at their grave sites.
Bill and Dimple Brown lived in the same house during the early years of their marriage.  Bill operated a community grocery and filling station.  Ray Shirley remembers visiting them during his early childhood and spending the night in the Brown home.  One of his memorable experiences during that visit was getting to pump the gasoline into the glass tank located atop the pump.  Gravity flow was used to transfer the fuel into the customer's car.  In those days, the gasoline was hand pumped from the underground tank into the tank which measured the gallons sold to each customer.
Another memorable experience came in the wee hours of the morning while Ray was asleep in a bedroom located on the side of the house next to the railroad track.  A huge steam locomotive belching smoke, steam, and fire came roaring around the curve approaching the Stevenson station.  The engineer was blowing the whistle for the crossing.  Ray awoke to the realization that his life was ending and it appeared he was headed for the place down below.  After he swallowed his heart and slowly realized that the train was not joining him in his bed, he lay there staring at the ceiling for the remainder of the night while he waited for the next train.

Cloud, William (I52409)
18078 William Cloud Bennett lived first in Philadelphia, and later in Ludwigs Corner. Bennett, William Cloud (I163313)
18079 William Cloud was Commissioned as Lieutenant, Virginia Line, by The Governor.
Virginia, Grayson County)      S.S.
On the 30th day of November 1832 personally appeared in open court before the County Court of Grayson now sitting William Cloud, a resident of the said county of Grayson and state of Virginia, aged eighty-three years who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his oath, make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefits of the Act of Congress passed June 7, 1832.
That he entered the service of the Unites States as a volunteer private soldier under Captain James Lyon in the fall of the year 1776, the declarant then being a resident of the present county of Patrick, Virginia, it then being the county of Henry.  He marched in said company with an expedition Commanded by Colonel William Christian of the county of Botetourt, Virginia, as declarant believes against the Cherokee towns, a distance of three hundred miles through the wilderness.  On this expedition, many Indian towns and crops were destroyed, and Mrs. Beane, who had been taken by the Indians, was rescued and restored to her friends.  The Declarant does not recollect the precise time he was absent on this expedition, but supposes he was in service at least three months.  The Declarant received no discharge for this tour because of the provisions given out in the wilderness on the return of the troops, they were directed to disperse and to make their way home as best they could.  The hardships he underwent in the expedition produced a fever on his return which confirmed him a long time and was near proving fatal.
Soon after he recovered his health sufficiently, he was detached with about twenty others by the County of Henry----he still residing in that county?on expedition across the mountains as far as the Lead Mines, now in Wythe County, Virginia.  The object of this expedition was to reconnoiter and obtain information of the proceedings of the Tories and disaffected persons who at that time abounded ion that section of the country.  He and party took one Torie prisoner and delivered him to Colonel Lynch who was then stationed at the Lead Mines for the purpose of keeping down the Tories and disaffected.  The Declarant thinks he was in the service between twenty and thirty days, and that it took place in the spring or summer of 1777.  Soon after this he found the situation of his family so unsafe where he then resided in consequence of the depredations of the Tories and his frequent calls from home that he removed them to the lower end of Henry County, on Smith River where he placed tem among friends.  He was then appointed a Lieutenant under Captain John Purtle, but not commissioned in consequence of the unsettled state of affairs. Being an expert woodsman he was frequently detached on short expeditions against the Tories among the mountains, where they (Tories) were exceedingly troublesome.. He remained about two months as Lieutenant under Captain Purtle, during which time?although he was not constantly in actual service?his service was more harassing than a regular tour of duty would have been as he was required to keep himself constantly alert and ready for call, and was frequently called upon, so that he could not attend to his domestic matters to any advantage.
He left his family where he had placed them as above stated and returned to the upper end of the county where he had formerly resided in order to be nearer the scene of danger and of action, and to render what service he could in keeping down the Tories who almost overran the southwestern frontier counties of Virginia and the adjacent counties of North Carolina.  He was immediately appointed Lieutenant under Captain Jonathan Hamby and was then commissioned as such by the Governor of Virginia.  His commission was burnt he believes among his other papers some prior years ago when his house was burnt.
In this company he continued to serve until nearly the close of the war when he was promoted to the command if the said company.  During the whole of this last mentioned period, he was complete Minute-Man, being constantly on the alert, marching to and fro as occasion required, and being engaged in a number of short expeditions which is impossible for him to recollect in detail.
While Lieutenant under Captain Hanby as above stated, he served three months actual service being stationed at Headspeth and Megowans, the then County of Patrick, went on several expeditions in the neighborhood against the Tories who committed great devastations and who during the time killed William Fletcher, a Whig.  In this town he served as Lieutenant under Eliphas Shelton in the year 1777 as well as he recalls.
In the year 1781, the Declarant still being a commissioned Lieutenant volunteered as a private soldier and served fifteen days under Maj. or Colonel Lyon Company officers not recollected, and attempted to find Gen. Green but could not do so until after the battle of Guilford and as they could not aid in the battle they returned home.
The Declarant was born in the month of September the 17th day in the year 1750 old style as appears by a transcript from his family register now in his possession in the County of Rowan State of North Carolina. He was resident of the County of Henry State of Virginia, when he first served a tour of duty ? when he served the other times he was a resident of the County of Henry (now Patrick).  He was resident since the Revolutionary War in the County of Grayson now established, but for a considerable part of this time, his residence was first in the County of Henry, then Patrick the counties having been subdivided several times.  He still resides in the County of Grayson State of Virginia.
He served during the Revolutionary War five months & five days as a private soldier and five months as Lieutenant.  He always returned from every tour he served.  He has no discharge & has no documentary evidence of his services.  He was not acquainted with any regular Officers being always in the militia services under Militia Officers.  He is known to Archibald Stuart and William Carter (there being no minister in his neighborhood) who can testify to his character for veracity and their belief of his services as a soldier of the revolution.  He knows of no living witness by whom to prove his services except Maj. William Carter of the County of Patrick and Maj. John Bedd of the County of Henry.
He recollects particularly two expeditions rather longer than the others.  One into Wilkes County, North Carolina, against the Tories, and one to meet General Green (Nathaniel) in order to join his army.  Major or Colonel Lyon, under whom he was a volunteer ? though still holding the office of Lieutenant in Hanby?s Company ? got lame and returned with his company, upon which Major Peter Hunston ?beat up for volunteers? of which the Declarant was one, and again attempted to join Green?s army.  But before that could be effected, the Battle of Guilford was fought, and he returned to his command at home.
During a considerable portion of the time he was Lieutenant under Hamby, the said Hamby was in the Carolina on a tour of duty, and the command of the with all its responsibilities devolved on him.  The Declarant cannot ascertain the precise length of time he was in active service during the Revolutionary War.  The nature of his service renders it impossible that he do so.  But he can say and does say that during the whole war that he was constantly either in actual service, or ready and liable to be engaged therein, and he believed that if he could ascertain the precise time in the actual service, it would not fall short of two or three years.  He further states that during the whole period of the war, his private affairs were almost entirely neglected, as he could not call one day his own.  The Declarant has no documentary in his power to prove his service, and witnesses by whom he could prove it live in another county, are aged and infirm; however, and their evidence cannot be procured without great trouble and expense.  If, however, he could procure the affidavits of these persons in time, he will do so, and forward it with this declaration.  He lived in North Carolina near the line, his former residence.  A short time after the close of the war, he removed to his present residence, thirty-five years ago (1797).  It was then a part of Patrick County, but has since been attached (annexed) to Grayson County.
He hereby relinquish every claim to a pension or annuity, except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any state.
Sworn to and subscribed this day and year aforesaid.

18081 William Cloud, probably first born child of Jeremiah and Elizabeth Cloud, married Margaret Frizzle.  They had been married 11 or 12 years when his father decided to move to Texas, but Margaret had been given farm land by her parents, Thomas and Tempe Frizzle, so William obviously opted to stay behind.  This explains why his oldest son, William Jasper Cloud, didn't arrive in Texas until about 1852, when he moved with the Boyds (his wife's family).  All the rest of William Cloud's children stayed behind in Alabama.
    (For Proofs of William's descendancy from Jeremiah, see: )
    Only his eldest son, William Jr, went to Texas, first to Austin county and ending up in Milam Co.  William and his other children, Elzena, and Thomas never left Alabama.
    At Jeremiah's death, his only surviving sons, H.G.W. (Wash) Cloud and Francis M. Cloud applied for administration papers on his estate. Regarding the controversy about whether William Jasper Cloud of Milam county is a son of Jeremiah, William Jasper Cloud was alive at the time of Jeremiah's death and Jeremiah's probate records never mention the Milam Co. William as a son of Jeremiah, but as a son of another William "from Alabama".  Eliza, Elizabeth, and Thomas also are recorded as heirs from Alabama ( in the later documents they are referred to as "Thomas Cloud and two others, residents of Alabama").  Specifically, it says: "The children of William Cloud to wit: William Cloud of Milam County, Thomas Cloud & two others residents of Alabama....".
    The children of William and Margaret Frizzle are listed in the probate of his father, Jeremiah Cloud of Austin county, Texas.  The family of William and Margaret are on the 1830, 1840, 1850 and 1860 Pike County, Alabama censuses.  The 1850 census of Pike Co, AL, lists Margaret as 41, b. GA (can't read or write), with 3 Clouds, age 25, 7 and 2.  William is not listed, so he is presumed deceased prior to 1850 (he is also listed as deceased in the 1861 probate of his father).  Margaret's father, Thomas Frizzle, 74, b NC and family comprise the next household.
    On Apr 5, 1837 Jeremiah Cloud bought land in Barbour County.  It was Section 2, Township 13 N, range 27 E.  (Lura Black writes "I happen to believe that this was OUR elusive Jeremiah").  On 8 Apr 1837, he bought another part of that same section. A Joseph Cobb (which may have been Mary's (daughter of Jeremiah) husband) purchased land on 10 Apr 1837 in Barbour County. It was Section 33, Township 13 N, range 27 E.
    On the same day,  land was purchased by William Cloud in Barbour County.  It was Section 14, Township 13 N, range 26. Who was this WILLIAM who purchased land on the same day as Jeremiah, within spitting distance?  Could he have been a brother to Jeremiah?  Or could this have been the son?  It couldn't have been William J, because William J was born in 1824-26 and minors couldn't purchase land.

18085 William Crouch, Sr. was a farmer. He bought a large tracki of land in Ledyard, Conn. and built thereon a large Capt Cod house, with a central stone chimney and fireplaces in the main room above and below. His daughter Christian and her second husband and his son David and family occupied it together for a while after William's death. David moved away and Christian's youngest daughter came in until her parents died. His daughter Mary lived and died on the adjoining farm to the North. His daughter Esther's farm joined it on the South. Across the road from Esther's, was the farm of Zachariah and, father South from Zachariah, Jabez lived. So, William had most of his children near him. In 1956, William Crouch's house was still occupied by his descendants.

When William Hammack acquired a title in 1656, it evidently was to clear title to the land on which his father had settled some 21 years before and William thus became the "first settler" in Yeocomico Forest.  As no other bearing the name hammack or similar name appeared in America during the 1600-1700 period.
William Cooper "the Elder" was disinherited from his father's will and he has a younger brother apparently by another marriage named William also.
The records of Dr. Bea Griffin, Ochlocknee, Georgia indicate the birthdate as 1680 and give the death date as about 1730.

    William Hammack died 7 Jul 1730 in North Farnham Ph., Richmond Co., VA
    Called "the Elder" since his father had two sons named William.
When William Hammack acquired a title in 1656, it evidently was to clear title to the land on which his father had settled some 21 years before, and William thus became the "first settler" in Yeocomico Forest. As no other bearing the name Hammack, or  similar name, appeared in America during the period 16-1700. At the time of William's death in 1700 he had accumulated considerable wealth as a colonial planter and we learn more about him and his family from the probation of his Will than from any other source. The will was made in the year of his death, 1700, and filed for probate in 1701. In the will he describes himelf as "William Hammack of Farnham Parish." The will appears to have been probated in two sections, or maybe there were two wills filed and coordinated in the probation proceedings in three different counties and over a period of 29 years. In one part he named William, youngest son, bequeathing him lands and other property, the lands to go to daughter Elizabeth "in case my son William should die.
There was an unspecified bequest to son Richard and he also named him as "my sole executor". There are two paragraphs concluding this Will part: "Do make my son William of age to receive his estate....but not to dispose of any part of it until he arrives at the age of one and twenty; " and, "I do make my daughter, Elizabeth, of age at years of 16 to receive her estate. (The two sons, William, one "the eldest", and the other  "the youngest", the minor age of one and the minor age of Elizabeth, indicate he was married twice and that the latter two children were by his second wife.
    In the other will part bequests are made to "my grand-children, William, John, Mary, till age of twenty", son Benedict, "land where I now live after death of my wife: and for want of sure heirs, to my son Robert Hammack; and for want of sure heirs, to next heirs at law; " to grandson John Hammack, and to son Benedict, "all land whereon my son Benedict now lives." "All the rest of my estate, after the death of my wife, to be divided amongst my children." "Two sons, Benedict and Robert, to look after my whole estate and take care of my wife and three children," (only two minor children were named in the first part, William and Elizabeth. The third could have been Daniel.
    We find from the William "O"  Hammack will, and from other ancient records, that he had seven sons: The disinherited son William, the youngest son William, Richard, John, Robert, Benedict, and Daniel. The latter is not mentioned in the Will except as "my children", but he was associated with, and lived in VA with, or near, the other sic and could have been none other than a brother to them. Since only one daughter, Elizabeth, was mentioned in the Will, there is no way to tell the names of others, if any.
