      I found your family listing on the RootsWeb website and perhaps I can
      identify three more children of George and Frances Cundiff.

      My Great-Grandmother was Dinah LaFayette Cundiff, born July 1,1851, died
      November 15, 1930 and buried at Palm Cemetery, near Rushville, Illinois. I
      have visited the cemetery and found her grave. The information on her
      death certificate was given by a son and states she was born in Coventry, MO
      (I question this); does not give her father's name and only Barton for her
      Mother's name. She married Leonidas Walker Anderson, a farmer & Baptist
      Minister. Haven't found their marriage in Illinois. Their youngest
      daughter told me they had been married on a wagon train. My Grandmother,
      their oldest child, was born in Missouri; their next child, George Anderson,
      was born in Kansas and then they returned to raise their family and live out
      their lives in Illinois.
      brother was Alexander Bell Cundiff born December 7, 1853, Illinois; died
      February 24, 1930, and buried in the cemetery at Arnezville, Illinois. I
      have visited that cemetry and found his grave. His death certificate states
      his parents were George Cundiff born KY and Frances Beard born KY.
      Information given by his widow. He married Susan E. Polsgrof in Morgan Co.,
      IL on Feb. 10, 1879.

      Have never been able to find a record to verify if it was Frances Beard or
      Frances Barton. Nor have I been able to find George and Frances on a
      census or anything else about them. I see you have a date for Frances'
      death. Do you have any idea where they died?

      My Grandmother's sister told me that Dinah Cundiff had a brother George who
      settled in Oregon and a sister named Mary who married a Mr. Frock, lived in
      Hale, Missouri and had two sons named Ken and Barton.

      What do you think - same family??
