Alfred Best was born June 19, 1829 in Toddington, Gloucester, England, the son of Richard & Dinah Peart Best. He joined the Mormon church in 1849 and came to the United States in 1850. He practised polygamy and had four wives & 23 children. He married Margaret DeGroot Oakley June 19, 1852 in Salt Lake City and they were the parents of 13 children. He married Mary Elizabeth Conk on 3 Oct 1866 in Salt Lake City and they had 6 children. He married Amanda J. Conk on April 25 1868 and they had 4 children. He was also supposedly married to Mary Susan Higgs, but I have found no marriage date, nor children born to this union.
