When he enlisted, he was a shoemak[er]. [sources: 11, 13, 14]

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 6 inches tall, and had a dark complexion, hazel eyes, and dark hair. [sources: 11, 13, 14]

When he enlisted in the Navy, he had hazel eyes, d[ark] b[r]o[wn] hair, and a dark complexion, and was 5 feet 6-1/2 inches tall. He had a scar on the posterior surface of a thigh. [source: 31]

During the war

He enlisted and was mustered into service on 25 September 1861 He was enlisted for three years, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Captain Casner. He was mustered in as a private in company K, by Captain Dye. [sources: 1 (27 Sep), 8 (25 Sep), 11 (25 Sep), 34 (corp)]

On his veterans' furlough, he apparently took $100 from William H Johnson (K) to his parents. [source: 33]

On 2 July 1864, he wrote a letter to David Johnson, father of William H Johnson (K), describing Johnson's death on 18 June 1864. [source: 22]

He was a corporal on 10 September 1864, but was reduced to the ranks then, "for using insolent language to his superior officers". [source: 2]

On 14 November 1864 he was promoted to corporal, probably effective 27 September 1864. [sources: 3, 12]

He mustered out on 10 July 1865 with his company. He was first sergeant of company K. [sources: 1, 7 (14 Jul), 34]

After the war

He may be the William Cloud who enlisted in the Navy on 4 June 1867. He enlisted as a landsman, with no previous service. He was a shoemaker. The pension index by unit card refers to his having served on the Constellation, Vermont, and Minnesota. [sources: 19, 31]

He married Priscilla [unknown family name]. She was born in 1844/45. They apparently had at least one child:

[sources: 15, 28]

In 1880, he was living at 2412 Stewart Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with his wife Priscilla, son John, and two boarders. He was a clerk in an office. (The 1881 directory lists him as a driver, at that address.) [sources: 15, 32]

In 1900, he may be the William Cloud who was living as a roomer at 119 East 24th Street, Manhattan, New York, New York. He was a cashier, and had not been unemployed in the previous year. [source: 23]

On 1 January 1901, he married Antoinette Zelenka. She was born on 4 June 1876, in Bohemia, Czechoslovakia. She immigrated in 1889 or 1891. They had two known children:

[sources: 18, 24 (1891), 25 (1889), 30 (16 on 19 October 1917, and on 13 July 1919)]

He died on 16 January 1907, in New York, New York. [sources: 18, 19]

On 19 September 1907, Antonie Cloud, guardian of his minor dependents, applied successfully from New York for a pension, under the Act of 27 June 1890. The pension certificate was issued on 18 March 1909, and she received $8 per month retroactive to 19 September 1907, and $12 per month retroactive to 19 April 1908. She also received $2 per month extra for Margaret and for Wilhelmina while they were less than 16. [sources: 16, 19, 30]

In 1910, his widow, Antonie Cloud, was living at 310 East 74th Street, Manhattan, New York, New York. She was living with their children Margaret and Wilhelmina. She was a midwife, with private patients. [source: 24]

She was a midwife, her husband was a stationary engineer, and Margret was a stenographer. [source: 25]

On 29 December 1929, his widow, Antoinette C Cloud, applied successfully from New Jersey [?] for a pension. [sources: 16, 19]

In 1930, his widow was living at 258 Liberty Street, Little Ferry Borough, Bergen County, New Jersey. She was widowed. She was living with their daughter Margaret and Margaret's husband and children. She owned the house, which was worth $6,000. She was a midwife. [source: 26]
