- Dardenelle said that he'd heard that Margaret was working in Bill and Nancy's home and became pregnant, so Nancy left him. Hazel says they "eloped" to Indian Territory. Shorty said she was 12 years old when she got pregnant and that her last name was either Greenback or Skipper. (Another researcher wrote that her maiden name was Carter or MacCarter.) A Warranty Deed filed both in Seminole County, OK and in Milam County, TX, May 31st 1910, is signed "W.L. Cloud and wife, M.S. Cloud", which would imply her name was Skipper (assuming Shorty remembered her name correctly). (Since Bill had taken in several orphans, it is possible Margaret may have been orphaned also.)
The 1907 Oklahoma statehood census has her age as 44 years, implying a dob of 1863. If their first child, Mary, was born 1882, she was 18 or 19 when she conceived their first child.
(8-26-1997) Aunt Hazel said "Grandma Cloud" died one year after Grandpa Bill died. She said that they "married" in Texas and moved to Oklahoma -- but no records have been found of grandpa legally divorcing Nancy or for any marriage to Margaret. Did he ever marry Margaret?
