    • Youngblood-Armstrong says: "James Cloud moved to Austin Co. Texas, going overland, by horseback.  Other men in the Mt. Meigs neighborhood went at the same time.  Later, Jennie took their children and slaves by boat from Montgomery to New Orleans and thence to Hempstead, which at that time was in Austin county, now Waller county."  In the administration of Jennie's father's estate, 1840 in Alabama, is the statement that she and her husband were non-residents, proving that they had moved from Alabama to Texas prior to that date.
      The name of only one child is known (Mary, who married Joseph Francis).  In the settlement of Jennie's mother's estate (Adeline] in 1874, Mary is listed as an heir, residing in Texas, and the daughter of Jennie Cloud, deceased.
      In BELLVILLE: THE FOUNDERS AND THEIR LEGACY by Isabel Frizzell (note the name -- James' eldest brother married Margaret Frizzle.) there is this statement on p. 10, "Four other original purchasers, all farmers, appear to have been settled in the Piney-Cochran area before the town of Bellville was founded.  One of these, James M. Cloud, bought Lot 3 in Block F.  Cloud was listed in the 1850 census as a 38-year old farmer who came from Georgia."
