      I was recently thumbing through World Ancestory Tree.com and saw you
      were seeking information on my Great Grand Father William Perry Cundiff.
      The little information I can give you is that William Perry married my
      Great Grand Mother Lucrieta J. Dutton. They had seven children, one of
      those being my Grand Father Harold Lee Cundiff. Harold and one of his
      brothers (Delmont) opened a jewlery store on fountain square in
      Somerset, KY. in 1927 and remained in buisness untill 1967 when they
      retired. In 1926, my Grand Father (Harold) married my Grand Mother Ora
      Catron to which they had an only child, my father William H. Cundiff Sr.
      Other brief Information I can give you on William Perry's Children is
      that my Great Uncle Ethel retired from the Union Pacific Railroad and
      that another brother was a doctor (MD). I've only heard his name
      mentioned a couple of times, all I ever knew him as was Uncle Doctor,
      and I know of two other brothers whose names do not come to mind, but
      one fatally shot the other as he passed in front of the window where his
      brother sat cleaning a gun.
      My father passed away in 1993, so alot of the family history went to the
      grave with him. What I've told you was some of the stories I've been
      told over the years. My Grand Father passed away in 1977, Uncle Delmont
      passed away in 1978, Uncle Ethel died (i think) in 1975.
      I hope this has been some useful information to you, and again I
      appologize for the names which have slipped my mind. I can give you
      names of other Cundiff's who could give you more helpful insight: C.K.
      Cundiff of Somerset, William H. Cundiff Jr. of Stearns KY., Dee Dee Oney
      of Lexington, and Kathy DeBoard of Somerset.
      In closing, A display of Uncle (Doctors) office and personal belongings
      can be seen at the Stearns Museum, Stearns KY.
      Feel free to contact me if I can be of more help in the future.

      Sincerly;
      Rory D. Cundiff

      P.S.
      I know that there were also
      two daughters of William
      and Lucrieta, but again, names
      have slipped my mind.
