Biography from "The History of Darke County, Ohio" p. 570-71. WH Beers and Company, Chicago. 1880.
GORDON CLOYD, farmer ; P.0. German.
The subject of this memoir is a native of this county, born in German Township in 1822 ; he is the son of the pioneer James Cloyd, who was perhaps the first permanent settler in the township.
Gordon our subject's early life, was devoted to such labor as the frontiersman was accustomed to do; he availed himself of what educational opportunities then offered, often going a distance of two miles through swamp and thickets to school. At the age of 20, he went to Preble County and engaged as a laborer on a farm ; he remained here five years, and then located on the place where he now resides.
He was married in 1846 to Miss Julia A. Woodmansee, a native of Butler County ; her father was an early settler and prominent citizen of the township, having frequently had the offices of Trustee and Justice of the Peace conferred upon him. Mr. and Mrs. Cloyd are the parents of four children—Edward, Elmira, Flora B. and Sampson. They are members of the M. E. Church, and are leading exemplary lives.
Note: I'm not 100% sure if this picture is Gordon and Julia Cloyd.
