I am a volunteer for the East Tn. History Center working on a registry of Civil War soldiers. I am transferring to you because you know more about this tranfer than I do. Enjoy

re: Find A Grave Memorial# 5784189
The above referenced memorial says it is for Margaret Elizabeth Best Farr. The attached photo of headstone says "Elizabeth B. Farr." That Elizabeth Best, 4th child of John Michael and Frances (Costner) Best, married James William Farr is not disputed. That Margaret Best, 1st child of John Michael and Frances (Costner) Best, married Alexander Ross is certain. Consequently, it very unlikely that Elizabeth Best Farr was ever known as "Margaret Elizabeth Best" during her lifetime.

Sarah Scott Best
I have a Margaret Almyra Scott the daughter of Ann Diademea Davis Scott & William Scott. I believe this is Sarah's sister. Margaret married Elijah Walker Allen. These are my husband's great-great grandparents. Would you have any information on her? I have some but lose her around 1895. Thanks.

Hi David,

Are you any relation to John and Mary Jane McMillian Best? They are my Grandmother Maude Best Moore's parents. We might be related.

Christian is part of my husband's heritage so I would like to keep management. I will make any corrections or additions that you would like.

I don't know if I've ever run across you before, but I would love to trade info with you. I would like to know if what I have collected over the past 10 years is correct.

Thank you.
