    Notes 
    • He was a Baptist minister and became pastor of the First Baptist Church in Jonesboro, Georgia in 1860 and served the second longest pastorate in the church's history. Reverend Cloud was elected as moderator of the Flint River Association. He also served as editor of the "Jonesboro News" and president of Middle Georgia College.
      The 1890 Alachua Baptist Association (Florida) Minutes on page 14, "Eld. A.E. Cloud . . . came to Florida in 1881, settling at Lady Lake, where he peacefully and quietly, but victoriously, fell asleep in death, March 28th, 1890."

      "Deceased Ministers and Deacons."
      "We are thankful to be able to report that the churches during the past year lost none of their deacons. But we are made sad at the loss of one of our best ministers.
      "Eld. A.E. Cloud was born near McDonough, Henry county, Ga., May 8th, 1828. He professed religion, joined the church, and was baptized in 1848. He was educated at Mercer University, graduating in 1852, and was licensed to preach the same year. Married Miss Lizzie Calloway in 1853. Was ordained fully to the Gospel ministry at McDonough, Ga., in January 1854. Elders L.T. Doyal, J.S. Calloway (my note: father of Elizabeth "Lizzie") and D.L. Daffey constituting the Presbytery.
      "The greater part of his ministerial life was spent at Jonesboro, Ga., where he was pastor for thirty years. His health failing with lung trouble, he came to Florida in 1881, settling at Lady Lake, where he peacefully and quietly, but victoriously, fell asleep in death, March 28th, 1890.
      "While in this State he served as pastor at Leesburg, Lady Lake, Pine Level (my note: present-day Oxford FBC, Sumter County 1887-1888) and Whitney. Bro. Cloud was one of the truest men that ever graced the pulpit. His purity of life was his crowning virtue. As a preacher he was calm and deliberate, argumentative and sound. He was free from all tendency to novelty, either in subject or delivery, yet in no way dogmatical. He accepted the doctrines of the Baptists because he had investigated them and found them to correspond to those laid down in the New Testament. As a pastor he was watchful over his flock, and ever a safe adviser.
      "When the Christians and moral citizens of Georgia were engaged in their first efforts to drive the whiskey traffic out of the State, he was selected to carry the standard of moral reform in his county, and triumphantly elected to the Legislature, where he served a term or two with distinction. He was one of the originators of the college at Jonesboro, Ga., and for years President of its Board of Trustees. He was liberal with his money and gave freely for every good cause."
      "(Signed) E.H. Rennolds, Sr., for the committee"
