Catherine Best accompanied by her husband, John W. Best and seven children, crossed the country to find a new home in Kansas. Mr. Best had made a trip to Atchison County in the previous year and after carefully looking over the ground, made up his mind that the country had a great future, and he decided to move his family so as to make a permanent home in Kansas. The Best family arrived in Atchison in March of 1861 and at once moved to a farm in old Monrovia. In June of the same year, Catherine Best died, at the age of forty-six years. The following children were born to John W. and Catherine Best: Mary and Elvina, deceased, in Pennsylvania; Henry, living at Parr, Tex.; Lewis, Luther and Reuben, deceased; Mrs. Henrietta LAMBERSON of Argenty, Ark.; Michael, deceased and Aaron S.
