Allendale was not a county until 1911. In 1870, the Allendale County area was part of two other counties, Beaufort and Barnwell. You should try your search there.

My Great Grandmother's name was Peggy Best, also of Allendale, SC., You might try the Bull Pond Section of Allendale -- previously Barnwell County. You might also try the cemetary records for Trinity Church in Allendale. That is where my Great grandmorther is buried. There may be other Best's in the Grave site. Good luck with your search. I may have other information on the Best's but not very much.

Based upon the information you have provided, I believed the following information pertains to your ancestors but you'll need to verify this as there may have been more than one Aaron/Aron Best and or Phillis living in the vicinity of the counties of: Barnwell, Allendale, or Hampton.

In 1870 Bullpond, I noticed that a number of the "Best" households were identified as Rest.
