      "J.W.J. Cloud died from gunfire, presumably from a murderer, in the Hem
      pstead community known as "Six-Shooter Junction".  His widow, the 39-ye
      ar-old Laura Frances, bundled up the three kids and moved back to her h
      ometown, Prattville (Autauga County), Alabama. She established a boardi
      ng house on the Main Street so that she could be independent and feed h
      er kids."
      "Laura's father, Martin BURT, was an early settler of Autauga County. H
      e was famous for arriving by flatboat and building a home with bedroom(
      s) for his daughters upstairs and the only stairway ascending from the m
      aster bedroom. (That home is now owned and occupied by a retired Air Fo
      rce colonel.)"
      "Howell MURPHREE of the Dothan/Troy, AL, area went to Prattville to tak
      e a good job with Continental Gin Company of Prattville. He stayed at M
      rs. Cloud's boarding house and got acquainted with Mrs. Cloud's daughte
      r, Willie, and they married. Then, Howell's little sister came visiting
      . She met and subsequently married Mrs. Cloud's son, James Ross Cloud (
      father of James William "J.W." Cloud and grandfather of Cecil Gaines St
      okes Jr.). The two couples remained in Prattville and had a bunch of ki
      ds who grew up in houses facing one another across Main Street."
      "One of those kids was J.W. "Jim" Cloud, who settled in Huntsville afte
      r WWII. Cec's [my] mother was one of the others. Their brother, Burt, w
      as the third. Unfortunately, neither Willie Cloud Murphree nor James Ro
      ss Cloud survived to see all of their children reach adulthood. Thus, t
      he double-first cousins became even closer and the Cloud connection was l
      ost if not discarded.  Only Jim Cloud has exhibited any interest in lea
      rning more about it, and he has influenced Cec [me] to be interested."
      "Cec [I] went to high school in Nashville (because that's where my fath
      er found opportunity in the shoe industry), graduated from Auburn Unive
      rsity, and settled in Huntsville because this is where the high-tech ch
      allenges of "the missile gap" were being worked. My siblings and Cloud-
      related first cousins are currently in AL (Huntsville & Gulf Shores), G
      A (Atlanta & Griffen), TX (Houston), NC (Concord), and Argentina."
      "While Cloud kinship was apparently being forgotten in the 1886 to 1975 p
      eriod, there was plenty of interaction with Murphree kin. The Murphrees h
      ad settled in the middle-Tennessee region (Murfreesboro, TN), gone to s
      outheast Alabama with a herd of Tennessee horses, and found new homes. C
      ec [I] grew up with lot's of interaction with Murphree kinfolks; but my t
      wo uncles and their wives and kids were the only Clouds I ever knew unt
      il I joined CFA and the email "Cloud-list"."
