My great-grandfather, William Lafayette "Bill" Cloud's, second wife, Margaret  (ca 1868-1918).  (We think her maiden name was SKIPPER.)  She is pictured holding Hazel CLOUD  (1904-present) (top left), her grandson, Dick HOPGOOD (son of Mary CLOUD) (top right), Vernon J. CLOUD (1903-1988) (bottom left), son of William Jasper CLOUD, and Lillian "Shorty" CLOUD (1903-1992) (bottom right).  This photo taken ca 1904 in Oklahoma (probably in Konawa or Sasakwa, Seminole County, Oklahoma.

The political campaign card of John CLOUD, son of William Lafayette CLOUD, running for County Clerk of Seminole County Oklahoma (he lived in Wewoka at the time).

The reverse (printed) side of the above card only -- the writing is hard to read    .......  (It looks like it reads "John M. Cloud, Candidate For, County Clerk, Seminole County, Subject to the Action of the De...................ary in August".  Note that, just prior to statehood in 1907, there was a procedure set in place for office holders (and I guess candidates) to have their authority transferred.  For this reason, the bottom line makes me think this card was printed just prior to the 1907 statehood (or immediately afterward), hence the estimated date of 1907.

Ardmore, I.T.
circa 1890

My grandmother Cloud's brother, little Theodore SEYBOLD (J.R.'s son) in his coffin  (1875- circa 1890).  -----  (Taken in Ardmore, I.T., I'm betting this is the only picture J.R. and Amanda had of their son, Theodore, and the tragedy this photo exemplifies is part of what motivates me to seek to know more about my family.  Why and where did J.R. die?  Why did Theodore die?  The evidence seems to indicate that they died at nearly the same time (ca 1890) and only shortly after their arrival in Indian Territory -- see the photo of J.R.'s store above.  And then where are J.R, Theodore and Amanda buried?)
