One Foot In The Grave
Best Family

I guess what I really need is to see what you have for the Best family from Jacob & Elizabeth Ebberlay Best and their kids on back so I can get what I have on them straightened out as to where everyone was born, etc. Can you send me a family tree file or a partial one anyway ?

One Foot In The Grave
RE: Wish I'd found you 3 days ago!

Who do you have as Jacob Best's parents - I have John & Mary Susannah Kintner Best. The reason I ask that is that I have Mary S Kintner Best born 1772 in Frederick County, Maryland (and John Best born 1761 in Germany). That would mean they were married in America and their kids were all born in here, unless I have Jacob Best 1800-1873 attached to the wrong parents. What do you and the History you mentioned have for his parents ?

Jacob Best
Hello Dave,
I saw your message to One Foot In The Grave, of which I am a member. I did some checking of censuses for Jacob and find on the 1860 census both he and his wife are listed as being from Darmstadt as you say. I couldn't find them on the 1870 census but I do find Elizabeth living with their son Jacob on the 1880 census and Jacob (the elder) and Elizabeth are both said to be from Hesse. I agree that they both are from 'Germany' and will try to get it changed.
