      On the 13th of June 1862 this regiment was on picket duty on the Williamsburg Turnpike about six miles from Richmond, and was attacked by a scouting party of the enemy. A brisk skirmish ensued on the left of this regiment in which the enemy lost seven killed, thirteen wounded and one captured. Our loss was none. On the 25th of June while on picket duty, we were attacked by the enemy early in the morning. Considerable skirmishing ensued, which kept up all day and in the evening became general along the line, when we charged the enemy, driving him back with great slaughter. Our loss was seven killed, five missing, and forty wounded. On the 27th of June 1862, the regiment left camp, advanced and marched in pursuit of the enemy and on the 30th was present, but did not engage in the action at Frazier's Farm, Va.

      Cloud, - William W. - private  April  29, 1861. Wounded at
      Spotsylvania, Va. May  12, 1864. At home on wounded
      furlough August 31, 1864. No later record. Moved To Bryan, Texas
      William enlisted in the Confederacy during the Civil War on April 29, 1961. He was wounded at Spotsylvania, VA on May 12, 1864. He was furloughed on August 31, 1864.
      In 1872 William and Sarah joined a wagon train of people from Georgia and came to Texas to join their family. William and Sarah settled on land near his father. He eventually owned many acres, including some of the Isaiah Curd, HR Cartmell, Joshua Seale, and John W. Stewart grants.
      From Olive Ruth Nabors descendant of WilliamWilson Cloud:
      I have no proof but I think that William Wilson Cloud and Sarah Jane Smith came to Brazos Co. before 1872 because Elisha died in 1871 and William Wilson was executor of his will and appeared before authorities to probate the will.
