|Birth: ||Dec. 31, 1853|

NOTE: The engraving on his tombstone is not correct. George Cloud was born December 31, 1853 not 1854 in Curtisville, Tipton County, Indiana. And Died September 21, 1915 not 1914. George W. Clouds death record recorded in Centerville, Appanoose County, Iowa, Gives birth and death date as 1853-1915. Three obituaries also give the same information. Conclusion is that the stone's year dates are incorrect.
