      Thanks for responding so quickly.

      My grandmother was Nelia Ridings Cundiff. I've never heard of Flora
      Carlton. My father (Robert James Cundiff) is deceased, but he has one
      brother (Joe Cundiff) and one sister (Sabra Cundiff Miller Gibson) still
      living. I will ask Aunt Sabra if she knows who Flora Carlton is. I have
      never heard that my grandfather was married before, but he died two years
      before I was born and I never heard any details of his early life. My Dad
      was not a very social persons, so I never knew many of the Cundiff family
      outside Dad's brothers and sisters and their children. The Cundiffs have a
      reunion every other year in Somerset. For a number of years they were in
      July. Last year (2000), we met the first week of October. I'm not sure
      when the next one is planned. I have only attended twice because I have
      always lived a long distance, but I hope now that my family is raised and I
      have more vacation, that I can attend more.

      I do remember visiting as a child with Leonard Cundiff, I assume your
      husband's grandfather. He was one of the few relatives we had in
      Cincinnati. As I recall, he owned a store in Norwood, Ohio.

      What city do you live in? If you're not familiar with Cincinnati, Norwood
      is a city surrounded by Cincinnati. My family moved from Somerset,
      Kentucky to Norwood in 1954.

      I've not worked much on my genealogy, but I plan to and intended to review
      what your husband has posted. My husband started working on his genealogy
      about 5 years ago and he has really enjoyed it. We are going on Monday to
      Gulfport, Mississippi, to meet one of his cousins for the first time that
      he found through his research. My husband, John Green, has been prodding
      me to get started on my family, but I just have not had the time, but I am
      interested. He was working on his family tree this week when he said,
      "What was your grandfather's name." I told him Charlie Cundiff. He
      plugged that in and came up with your information. It was exciting to see
      all those family names appear.
