    Notes 
    • Obituary (Burnet Bulletin, December 8, 1910):
      IN MEMORY OF GRANDMOTHER
          ---
      Mrs. Jane E. Cloud (nee Calvert) was born in Montgomery, Alabama, March 10, 1837.  When only a child she came with her parents to Texas.
      In 1854 she was married to Mr. Alexandria Cloud.  To them were born five children, Mr. T.C. Cloud, Briggs, Texas; Mrs. G.W. McCann and Mrs. J.W. Brown, both of Adamsville, Texas; Mr. C.A. Cloud, Bradshaw, Texas; and Mrs. T.J.Russ, Bellville, Texas.
      After an illness of six weeks she died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. J.W. Brown, at the age of seventy-three years, eight months and four days.  She is survived by the five children mentioned above, thirty-seven grand children, thirteen great grand children and other relatives.
      Tongue cannot express the sadness of our hearts when the message came to us Monday morning: "Grand-mother is dead."  It meant we would never again see her smiling face!  Never to hear her kind and gentle voice!  Never again to be guided by her good advice and wise plans that always led us in the right way.
      The last two weeks of her suffering was intense, but Oh, how patiently she bore it.  Never were her pains too severe but that she would show her appreciation when a small act of kindness was shown her if it was only a glass of water handed her.
      Grandfather died when the children were very small.  She was left alone in the world with the responsibility of raising the five children, the oldest being only ten years of age.
      Grandmother had been a member of the Methodist Church for several years, living until her death a devoted Christian.  Her children have said of her, since her death, "Oh, what a faithful, kind and loving mother she was!"
      She realized death was at hand about twelve minutes before she passed away.  She told those who were standing by her bed that she was going Home.  There will be no pains to bear in heaven.
      Her body was laid to rest at the Smith Cemetery.  Funeral services were conducted by Rev. A.B. Jenkins of Lampasas.  It would have melted the hardest heart to have seen how the son and daughters broke down with grief when they looked the last time upon the face of the loving mother.
      Would that I could say something to lessen the grief of the sons and daughters, but we can only express to them our deepest sympathy, pointing them to our Heavenly Father who alone can chasten sorrow.  It sometimes seems so hard to be reconciled to God's will, but we must submit and while it is with hearts aching in our grief and loss, we can only say, "Thy will be done."
      It is so hard to give up one we love so dearly, but we know by our loss Heaven has been made brighter.
      Her loving grand-daughter
