I believe I am a gggran daughter of Nathan and Nancy Best (their son Robert T.; his son Paul D.; and my mom, Billie Sue)
One source claims Nathan was born in England and travelled to AL where he married Nancy.
What do you think?

one question

I was wondering about the dates you have for Nathan Best and Mary L. (wife of Robert). It says in your listing that MAry died in the Civil War , June 6, 1864 and is buried at the Cemetary near French Camp, is that right? I had another source say it was Nathan who died and was buried there. Perhaps a slip on someone's part - maybe theirs? Let me know, sarahjoe@quixnet.net

I am a ggg grandson of Nathan Hanks Best. He had a son named after his brother, Robert Thaddeus. Robert married Susan Wilson, and one of their six children was my grandmother, Ethel Zora Best. I would love to receive your extended version of this line. I'm just starting out, and your message was very exciting to read. Thank you for your help.

Paul D. Best

Email me straight, Bobby, so we can avoid all this mess. Betty Murray has had the most info, and I've met another cousin from great grandmother Susan's side of the family.
