Richard Best was born in Kinderhook, New York to Ephraim P. and Marytje [nee Best as well!] BEST. At some point, he went to South Carolina where he met and married his wife, Eliza WRIGHT. There they had Walter Joseph BEST, before moving back to New York. They resided in Brooklyn where Eliza gave birth to Richard W. BEST (1848 - 1901), William Richard BEST (1850 - 1855), and Ephraim BEST (1852 - 1854).

The family suffered a lot of deaths in a short amount of time. Eliza's parents (Joseph and Elizabeth WRIGHT) traveled from South Carolina to New York and are buried with the family in Green-Wood.
