My family descended from a Cloud who was Cherokee Indian. Not only did my grandmother's & father's features reflect this Cherokee Indian heritage, I have seen a picture of one of my Cherokee ancestors (my cousin has this picture).
Here is my line in case it helps:
JOHN J. CLOUD married MARY JANE FITZHUGH (b. 22 July 1847 - d. unknown, but buried in Fitzhugh Cemetary, Dyer, TN).
Daughter of John J. Cloud x Mary Jane Fitzhugh:
SARAH MELINDA CLOUD (b. May 1867, Hot Springs, AR - d. 1902, Texas).
Sarah Melinda Cloud married Steven Mathias "Matthew" Richardson on 10 Mar 1885 in Athens, Henderson Co, Texas.
