      My husband's Cundiff line
      I. Fountain Fox Cundiff and Elizabeth J. ne'Grubb Holt had:
      2. Willliam Crawford Cundiff b. 25 Dec 1849 KY - d. 22 Dec 1913 OR m. 1872 Eliza Jane Gover b. 6 Nov 1854 KY - d. 31 Oct 1926 OR and had:
      3. Lillie Mae Cundiff b. 26 Aug 1873 KY - d. 19 Mar 1964 OR m. 1891 George Brown Saunders b. 13 Feb 1869 KY - d. 11 May 1949 OR and had:
      4. Eliza Jane Saunders b. 21 Jul 1901 OR - d. 17 Jan 1990 CA m. 1920 Clarence Guy 'Cecil' Hicks b. 26 May 1900 OR - d. 19 Jul 1958 CA and had:
      5. Cecil [nmn] Hicks b. 2 Aug 1926 CA - living m. 1948 Jobyna Lee Sturm b. 5 Aug 1930 CA - living and had:
      6. James W. Hicks, my husband.

      the source for all of this is family records and personal knowledge with the exception of the middle name for Fountain for which our family Bible only gave an initial 'F.' and we found the middle name on the internet and our family record gave his wife's surname as Grubb whereas the internet site gave it as Holt and we later learned she had been married previous so we put it together that her maiden name was Grubb but she was surnamed Holt when she married Fountain. this is only my husband's direct line of descent from Fountain. We do have laterals if you want them. Please be specific or reply on this email so I know what you might be after. We have the complete families of most of these people as well as the families of their siblings.

      As an FYI, our research indicates that His 4 children were born two by his first wife and two by his second wife. Nancy and Silas being children of Fountain and Elizabeth Mills, his first wife, while Mary and William were born to his second wife, Elizabeth J. GRUBB (Holt) may have been a widow as she often recorded as Elizabeth J. Holt. However, her maiden name is on her son's death record as Elizabeth J. Grubb, daughter of 'Jake Grubb' per her death record and her mother's maiden surname is given as 'Arthur'. So, our record is slightly different than your post, ours having the wives married in the reverse and the children split between them. We have Willam Crawford Cundiff (your William C. Cundiff) born 25 Dec 1849 at Somerset Pulaski Co, KY. Just thought late readers might want to know where we've been since the last post and thank you so much for all your help! You've been grand! If you want anything on these, let me know.
