Hi Curtis,
You have guessed right: C flat is B!

When a key is flattened, the result is a key that is one semi tone to the left.
It is pretty obvious to find D flat, E flat, G flat, A flat or B flat since these are black keys.
However, when you flatten F or C, you still have to move one semi tone to the left. The surprising result is not a black key, but a white one.
This is the reason that:
F flat is E.
C flat is B.
The opposite thing happens when you use the sharp sign: you move one semi tone to the right.
C sharp, D sharp, F sharp, G sharp and A sharp- are all black keys, but B sharp and E sharp are white ones:
B sharp is C and E sharp is F.

If you want to know what is the reason for writing C flat instead of B read the page about double accidentals.

Don't hesitate to ask us further questions,
