      Hi! Here's something interesting:
      I went to the National Archives on Friday to see if I could find Stephen Cundiff and Eliza in the 1860 census. The pair did not marry until November 1850, and in that census Eliza is listed with her father. But I also looked for and found who may very likely be Stephen in 1850. He's the first Mexican War volunteer I've ever run across. Laurie

      Stephen Cundiff's second wife was Nancy Myers. Stephen and Nancy children: Effie, George,
      Thomas, Walter, Hattie Christine. Thomas was my grandfather born in 1879 and died November 9, 1955. (He was hit by a car.) I have spent many hours with Grandpa and Uncle Walter. Hattie Christine married a man named Sizemore and moved to Texas. Like you I do find that sometimes the dates are a little off and that sometimes the order of wives and children are wrong, but I can be sure of one thing that Nancy was my great-grandmother and that she was Stephen's second wife. Stephen is buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Newport, KY. For his birthdate I have Feb. 4, 1828 (Clay County, KY) and for his death Dec 1, 1910. I know that he volunteered for the Mexican Campaign and also for the Civil war as a wagoneer (Northern Army).

      I hope this information is acceptable and is of some help. I wouldn't be where I am today without the help of previous researchers. ( I have only been doing this for 3 months and I am very pleased with the results. I thank all who have been helped it is much appreciated.
