    Notes 
    • Fought in the Revolutionary War, Patrick County, Virginia.  Fought as a private in John Lyons Company and later as a lieutenant in Capt. Purtles Company.  Williamís third wife Nancy collected his pension.
          George C.H. Kernion wrote "William Cloud, who went to North Carolina after 1776.  He later on visited his brother, John Cloud, in north Louisiana.  He is said to have died at the advanced age of 114 years.  He is said to have a sight as good, as family tradition records it, that the could kill a squirrel in the tall pine trees with his rifle, and without glasses."
          Since William Cloud paid taxes in both Henry (later Grayson) County, VA and Surry County, NC, he must have owned land in both states.  This also would explain why he was appointed to jury duty in both states.
          William had obtained grants for large acreage in what later became East Tennessee.  In 1808, he appointed his son, William Morgan Cloud of Hawkins County, TN to be his attorney in "all his land affairs on the Western Waters, particular in a certain tract of land held by the heirs of Samuel Cummings, being on Elk Creek in State of Tennessee, 5,000 acres, which land he claims with just title to in part with my brother, Isaac Cloud."
          On the 30th day of August, 1832, William personally appeard in open court before the County Court of Grayson, VA in order to obtain the benefits of the Act of Congress passed June 7, 1832.  He was making application for pension based upon his military service during the Revolutionary War.  He was eighty-two when he filed his application.
