In Reply to: Jerome Redcloud death in 1963 by Debra of 11

I am a volunteer researcher for people with North Dakota roots. In the quick searching done, I couldn’t make a link from Jerome to Jack. However, I have located information that may lead to answers. If you already know this, I am hoping it will be of value to other researchers who are led to this posting. I can clearly understand why retrieving this obituary is important to you.

1) An image of a WW2 Draft Registration Card for "Chief Jerome Red Cloud" is on the website. This may be your Jerome Red Cloud because the North Dakota Death Index lists Jerome Red Cloud's birthdate to be 02/20/1883. The WW2 Draft Registration Card lists Chief Jerome Red Cloud's birthdate to be 02/25/1883. Links: and Holy Cripes, he was 6'2" tall.

2) Likewise, a WW1 Draft Registration Card can be found on this same site. The data matches up. It may be the same person. It states his nearest relative is William Red Cloud in Wakpala Carson, South Dakota.

3) Another source of information is located within the South Dakota Historical Collections compiled by the State Historical Society Volume 1, 1902 book. It lists descendants of Red Cloud's children complied by Professor Henry Walters in Philadelphia: The following is the list of Red Cloud's children: Tawapahawin (Mrs. Long Soldier), Porcupine, South Dakota. Sunskaotawin (Mrs. Slow Bear), Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Tokahewin (Mrs. Goodtalker), Rosebud, South Dakota. Anatanpiwin (Mrs. Kills Above), Pine Ridge, South Dakota. Okayakapiwin (Mrs. Big Road), Manderson, Nebraska. Wokeya Cola (Jack Redcloud), Kyle, South Dakota. This collection can be downloaded at:

4) Source: Indian Heroes and Great Chieftains, by Charles A. Eastman (Ohiyesa). This book has a biography on a Chief Red Cloud. In this book, it states that he had only one son, Jack Red Cloud. Here is an excerpt from that book: “His private life was exemplary. He was faithful to one wife all his days, and was a devoted father to his children. He was ambitious for his only son, known as Jack Red Cloud, and much desired him to be a great warrior. He started him on the warpath at the age of fifteen, not then realizing that the days of Indian warfare were well-nigh at an end”. This book can be located at:
