    Notes 
    • He was an heir to the estate of his father which included land and 20. At one time he owned land in Virginia. He apparently disposed of this land before the Rev. War and moved to SC; some say he stopped enroute in North Carolina. In South Carolina he received several land grants from the state. Between 1765 and 1772; he also purchased several land tracts from the state between 1786 and 1808; copies of the grants and purchases were received from the SC dept. of archives and history, Columbia, SC.
      The 1792 South Carolina Tax List for Fairfield County shows a William Cloud owning 2 slaves and 200 acres of 2nd class land on which taxes were due. See "The Bulletin", Vol. XIII, Number III, September 1990, page 82 & 84; Published by Chester District Genealogical Society, P. O. Box 336, Richburg, S. C., 29729.
      Note: See page 67 of The Bulletin, published by the Chester District Genealogical Society, P. O. Box 336, Richburg, SC 29729, Vol. IX, No. III, Sept. 1986. It gives a good description of his family and his Cloud ancestors.
      George C.H. Kernion wrote "The son of William Cloud and Elizabeth Hayes resided in Waren county, Georgia during the Revolutionary War. While it is not shown that he actually fought in the Revolution, the fact is established that he resided in Georgia during the Revolution and had his home destroyed by the enemy. (See Pension Claim of his son, John Cloud, 2-30935 Veterans' Administration Bureau, Washington, D.C.)."
