!3. BIO: William Cloud, son of William of Brandywine
Hundred, first appeared in S. C. by official records on the
third day of January 1765 when he took a land grant on
Fishing Creek in Chester Co., S.C., then old Craven County.
He took to successive land grants for "increase in
family". Sometime before 1775 William Cloud deeded this
land on Fishing Creek in Chester County to his daughter,
Mrs. ALICE BOYLESTON. This land is still owned by the
Boyleston family. The other grant of William Cloud on
Fishing Creek in Chester Co. was deeded to their son, JAMES
CLOUD. WILLIAM CLOUD then removed to Virginia until after
the Revolution when he came back to S. C. and records show
that he was buying lands in this county on the first of
January 1787. The family record is that WILLIAM CLOUD
married in Virginia to ALICE HARDEN before coming to S.C.
originally. There are deeds in Fairfield and in Charleston
showing ALICE CLOUD, the wife of WILLIAM CLOUD, as signing
dower rights. WILLIAM CLOUD made his Will March 14,
1810, probated Aug 30, 1811, as follows: To wife and son,
JOSEPH, certain negroes, cattle and furniture, remainder to
be sold and divided equally between my daughters, SIN FORD,

!MARRIAGE: SEE LEONARD ANDREA COLLECTION ON THE CLOUD'S OF
SOUTH CAROLINA. COPY ON FILE AT THE STATE LIBRARY IN
COLUMBIA, S. C. AND LDS LIBRARY SALT LAKE. FIRST TO
ELEANOR WILLIAMS AND SECONDLY TO ELIZABETH HARDIN; BOTH IN
FREDERICK CO. VA.

!NOTES: WILLIAM WAS AN HEIR TO THE ESTATE OF HIS FATHER. AT
ONE TIME HE OWNED LAND IN VIRGINIA. HE APPARENTLY DISPOSED
OF THIS LAND BEFORE THE REV. WAR AND MOVED TO SOUH
CAROLINA; SOME SAY HE STOPED ENROUTE IN NORTH CAROLINA.

! IN SOUTH CAROLINA HE RECEIVED SEVERAL LAND GRANTS FROM
THE STATE BETWEEN 1765 AND 1772; HE ALSO PURCHASED SEVERAL
LAND TRACTS FROM THE STATE BETWEEN 1786 AND 1808; COPIES OF
THE GRANTS AND PURCHASES WERE RECEIVED FROM THE S.C. DEPT.
OF ARCHIVES AND HISTORY, COLUMBIA, S.C.

!The 1792 South Carolina Tax List for Fairfield County
shows a William Cloud owning 2 slaves and 200 acres of 2nd
class land on which taxes were due. See "The Bulletin",
Vol. XIII, Number III, September 1990, page 82 & 84;
Published by Chester District Genealogical Society, P. O.
Box 336, Richburg, S. C., 29729.

!Note: See page 67 of The Bulletin, published by the
Chester District Genealogical Society, P. O. Box 336,
Richburg, SC 29729, Vol. IX, No. III, Sept. 1986. It gives
a good describtion of his family and his Cloud ancestors.

!PRIOR TO HIS DEATH HE SOLD OFF SOME OF HIS LAND, BUT STILL
HAD CONSIDERABLE PROPERTY AT THE TIME OF HIS DEATH IN SC.
SOME RESEARCHERS THINK THAT ALICE HARDIN WAS HIS SECOND
WIFE; ONE SUGGESTS ADELINE MARTIN AND ANOTHER NANCY VAUGHN
AS EARLIER WIVES. NO PROOF HAS BEEN FOUND BY THE SUBMITTER
TO SUPPORT THESE PRIOR MARRIAGES AS OF JAN 1995.

!ANDREA THINKS HE RESIDED IN VIRGINIA DURING THE REV. WAR;
PERHAPS NEAR FRONT ROYAL WHERE HIS FATHER ONCE SOLD SOME
LAND TO HIS UNCLE DANIEL.

!NOTES: MOST LIKELY HE WAS THE WILLIAM CLOUD LISTED IN THE
VIRGINIA CENSUS OF 1785 AS HEAD OF FAMILY BY THOMAS ALLEN.
AT THAT TIME THE FAMILY WAS LIVING IN THE FORK DISTRICT OF
WARREN COUNTY. THE CENSUS SHOWS HIS FAMILY CONSISTING OF 8
WHITES; THEY HAD 1 DEWLING AND 2 OTHER BUILDING. SEE PAGE
