Hi Thelma,

Yes, you would need to subscribe to some sites if you want to do the search yourself. LDS (http://www, is a free site, which may help you. Be careful, a lot of info can be erroneous. It would be up to you to verify the info, if possible.

Additional info:

Although LDS shows Frances Acock, I believe her maiden name is ADCOCK. Adcock families are neighboring Cundiff's in some censuses.
Wilkins Cundiff in 1870 is shown to be Wilson in 1860.
Robert's middle initial is W., as shown in the 1850 census.

LDS shows this: (I'm sure there's more)

Robert W. Cundiff Compact Disc #87 Pin #848780
Birth: 18 Sep 1814 Place: Muhlenberg, Kentucky
Death: 24 May 1863 Place:

Father: Isaac Cundiff Disc #87 Pin #839381
Mother: Frances Fortune Disc #87 Pin #839380

Spouse: Elizabeth A. Tanniehill or Fannchill Disc #87 Pin #848887
Marriage: 12 Jan 1846 Place: Logan, Kentucky
Spouse: Emily T. Dennis Disc #87 Pin #848888
Marriage: 30 Jul 1840 Place: Muhlenberg, Kentucky

(There is evidence of an Isaac Cundiff in the 1840 census, Muhlenberg.)

Isaac Cundiff Compact Disc #87 Pin #839381
Birth: 1 Jan 1778 Place: Prince William, Virginia
Death: 30 Sep 1855 Place: Daviess, Kentucky

Father: Jr John Cundiff Disc #87 Pin #843576
Mother: Virginia Sarah Young Disc #87 Pin #839378

Spouse: Frances Fortune Disc #87 Pin #839380
Birth: abt 1787 Place: Kentucky
Death: abt 1853 Place: Daviess, Kentucky
Marriage: 12 Oct 1803 Place: Prince William, Virginia

Here they are in 1850:

Daviess Co.
Division 1

Thos. Cundiff 35 KY Farmer
Real Estate Value:$1200.00
Margrt. 23 KY
Wm. H. 7 KY
James B. 5 KY
Martha J. 3 KY
Rebecca 1 KY
VISIT# 751:
Isaac 70 KY
Frances 60 KY
Bryant Y. 26 KY Farmer

This is the only census that would show where Isaac & Frances were born. The question is, is it erroneous?

Good Luck in your search. Let me know if I can be of any more help.
