Am stirring the pot in hopes of creating a pool of people interested in figuring out who Isom Cloud's parents were. The old idea that Abner Cloud and Amy Pyle were his parents no longer seems to hold water as Amy is suggested to have died either in 1770 or 1776. Isom was born in Mar 1779. It has long been believed that Isom and Elizabeth Cloud Bundren b. 1765 (daughter of Abner and Amy) were siblings due to their always living close to one another. Since Amy seems to be out of the picture, I am of the belief that they were more than likely first cousins. Abner did have at least one brother, Jospeh as I remember, who may have been Isom's father. There's no doubt of the closeness between Isom and Amy. Any Ideas?
