    Notes 
    • He gives his birthplace as Milam County, Texas on his social security application and, in the 1910 Seminole county, Konawa township census, he lists his birthplace as Texas and the birthplaces of both his mother and his dad as Texas, though his father, William L. Cloud, was born in Alabama and his mother, Nancy Rutherford, was born in Tennessee.
          While still an infant, his mother and father divorced.  She married a man named Wilson and they took Jake to Florida.  When he was ten, he said his step-father made him eat 3 apple pies because he just wanted to eat desert and not the meal, so he ran away.  He searched for his family until he was 18.  (His father had moved to Center, I.T. "the nation".)  He found his father there and Lizzie, his future wife, was working in his father's home.
          In 1900 he is on the census with his father and stepmother -- his name is given as Jacob and his date of birth as July 1879.
          He married Lizzie in 1902.  They lived in Konawa and moved to Albion in 1936 and then to Newman, California around 1952.
          Mary Boynton Forest said that Charlie "Snooks" handled the livestock on the farm because Jake had such a hot temper.  Aunt Hazel says he became a Christian at the age of 62.

    Notes 
    • Dardenelle and Aunt Hazel (August and September, 1997) said that grandpa Bill was a cotton gin man, that Jake worked in the gin for him and that grandpa Bill had hired servants.  Jake met Lizzie while she was working in his house.
      Aunt Hazel said (11-4-1997) that "dad said Center was no place to raise kids and moved six miles to River Bend just across the river from Ada".  They lived there for a few years, dad working with machinery in a cotton gin, and then moved on to Konawa, about 1909, because dad wanted a country life with his family.

      There was a two year drought in Konawa and they lost everything but one cow.  Jake got an opportunity to share crop in Albion so they moved there.  Hazel and Gail Boynton bought them a place there (Gail went to a "tax title" land auction and bid on the 40 acres for 25 cents an acre and got it for $7.50.)  Jake built a log house that they lived in.
      Hazel wrote that the entries in the family Bible were made by Shorty, as momma couldn't write very well.  "Shorty wrote the record and were mostly of our family, for she's like me, knew little of family traditions."  Just before she died, Shorty gave the family Bible to George Napier's wife, Glenda.
      Dardenelle said he'd heard that grandma Cloud's grandfather Seybold served in the civil war (i.e. David Seybold).
