Dorcas Cundiff listed in the 1880 US Census:
Dorcas Cundiff b. 1831 IN
father b. VA,mother b. TN
location: Hudson, Macon, MO
Elias W.sonage 29b. IA
Emmadauage 18b. MO
Amandadauage 17b. MO
"George"sisterfemale - age 16 b. MO (could this be?)
Oscarsonage 14b. MO
I assume Oscar was born in 1866 or approximately that.
Census are often off at least a year or more.
If so - the divorce must have been after 1866 -
OR: THE CENSUS TAKER WAS WRONG AND DORCAS WAS A WIDOW.

we can assume that Dorcas and her husband were probably
married in Iowa about 1850.
Perhaps you can find a census for 1850 in Iowa with a Cundiff family with the names you are researching.
