Priscilla Wood Moore
I just corrected her death date. I finally got a chance to look at Mom's Moore Family Book. The picture she has shows her death date as 1889 not 1883. But it is not a real clear picture. I have requested a photo.

RE: Cundiff photo requests
You are quite welcome. I just added photo of Thomas Cundiff's unmarked grave. There are just hundreds of them in this Block 21 - all single graves and so many unmarked. But, his grave is now documented, at least!

Cundiff photo requests
Hi. See my note from a few years back, below on your bio page. Mina is in an unmarked grave with a photo of her plot, so I removed the photo request as nothing else is available and she is documented. Benjamin Cundiff is not on Oak Ridge records. I found his death certificate and published obituaries and both state he is buried in Calvary Cemetery, Springfield, which is next to Oak Ridge. I will send a request to the memorial manager to move him there. We will look for the other Cundiff grave that you requested (Thomas) as the interment records do list him with a plot number.

Essie Cundiff photo request
I found an obituary on Essie and added it to her listing. She is memorial #56877949. She was the daughter of John and Emma Ritz; sister of Gladis Ritz, also buried in this cemetery. Hope that helps some.

I just added the gravestone photo for this memorial. As you can tell, it is very faded and hard to read, but that is the best I could do.

RE: Cundiff
No, I'm sorry that I have no other info on the Cundiffs in Oak Ridge. I have been photographing that huge cemetery for 3 years now but have no other info other than what I find on the records or on the tombstones. I did find it interesting that Oak Ridge records do not list Benjamin in 1918. Mina is there. If I were you, I'd call the cemetery to confirm his burial (217-789-2340)..quite unusual to not be on the records and I even checked all through March and April with no results.

Also, Block 21 is a section of mostly single graves so it's quite possible that Mina is there by herself. I did not have a photo of any Cundiffs (including Essie, the one you requested) in Block 21. It's possible I missed them, tho, but there are tons of unmarked graves in that Block. Sorry I could not be more help!

Richard Cundiff
A couple of days ago you sent me a message asking about the year of birth for Richard Cundiff. I had to enlarge the picture but the date actually reads 1837. I also corrected this date on the memorial.

Are you related to this family????
