This is currently the most mysterious bottle in the subset. Absolutely no leads or references have been discovered in relation to this product or producer. While record of a Civil War veteran named “Dr Cloud” in Atlanta just after the Civil War, and a physician in Austell in the late 19th century was also a “Dr Cloud”, neither of these individuals appear to be directly associated with this product.
