Orlando H. Cloud

(A report on the couple's Golden Wedding Celebration from The Delaware County Advocate, July 1940)

Brings Glad Surprises To Chester Couple

Always an occasion for JOYous celebration is a golden wedding anniversary. On June 10, that day came to Mr. and Mrs. Orlando H. Cloud of 704 Madison Street, Chester. Sixty relatives plus many friends called informally during the afternoon to pay their respects. This was as much a surprise to the couple as was the dinner given them by their son and daughter at the Ingleneuk, Swarthmore. Then, as has been the Clouds' custom for fifty years, they spent the week-end at Ocean Grove, N. J. Mr. Cloud was formerly in the shoe business in Chester, where he succeeded his father. Today he is president of the Excelsior Saving Fund, treasurer of Chester Rural Cemetery and secretary-treasurer of the Chester Industrial Loan Co.
