|Death: ||Apr. 18, 1860|
There is no stone for William, but I feel sure that he and his mother, Alcinda, would have been buried next to each other, as they died just a few months apart.
DeWitt County, Illinois
Thursday, April 26, 1860
Died at his residence, near Clinton, on the 18th day of April, 1860, Wm. S. CUNDIFF, in the fortieth year of his age. Mr. Cundiff was born in Hampshire county, Virginia, and removed with his parents to the State of Ohio, and from there to this State where he has spent the last twenty-four years of his life.
The last illness which terminated his mortal career was complicated, protracted and acutely painful, during which time he exhibited Christian patience and frequently attempted to console his companion and aged mother, who still lingers in extreme old age, and made her home with her son, that with him "all was well" in the future, and that their interest and comfort was all that bound him to earth. It would be easy to swell this brief notice if your rules would permit, but we forbear and beg only to say that as a husband, Mr. C. was kind and indulgent, as a friend and neighbor, confiding and generous, as a Christian, modest and retiring, as a citizen, filled a place in society which will not easily be supplied. Our loss is His gain. W. H.
