The Cloud Family history shown on this site is made up of other peoples contributions combined with a small amount of my input. The people who made contributions to this history were:

     Dorothy (Kern) Walker, granddaughter of LaDora (Cloud) Kern. Much of the information presented here is based on her research, her family's Bible, and information she collected from other people.

     Ann (McCoy) Haupt, Nancy (McCoy) Tritschler, Lois (Cloud) White, Johnny Cloud , Ed and Terri Cloud, and Katie Ruth (Cloud) Morrow all supplied information.

     The Cloud Family Association magazine articles supplied a large amount of information. The writers included Janice G. Cloud, Paula B. Young, Eileen Dickerson, Walter Lee Sheppard, Jr., George E. McCracken, Thomas Maxwell Potts, Robert P. Cole, Anne Morris Mertz, Sherrill Cloud, Harry Hogan and others. Anyone interested in joining the Association can do so by sending the $25 yearly dues to:
