Mary Lofton Best
Learn about removing the ads from this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 12, 1837
Death: Jul. 6, 1915, USA

It appears Mary's marker may be in error. In her application for a confederate pension based on the service of her husband, Robert Thaddeus Best, she states she would be 63 years old on Aug 12, 1900 making her birth year 1837. Her tombstone appears to have 1840 on it.
The 1860 census of Pickens County, AL has her age as 22 making her birth year as 1837 or 38. Her mother died May 21, 1840.
