I'm looking for info on descendants of Hannah Best Elliott. She was born in Darlington Co, SC about 1839, dau. of Benjamin Best & Margaret Galloway, 1 of 7 children. Her older brother, Williams Best is my gr.gr.grandfather. Hannah married Frank Elliott (also from Darlington Co SC), Frank served in Confederate Army (21st SC Regt) along with his father (Capt. J.F.A. Elliott) and Hannah's 5 brothers (Williams, George, Robert, James & Nicholas). I have copy of a letter from J.W. Thomas of Mexia (formerly of Darlington County SC) posted in Hartsville Messenger (newspaper in Hartsville SC) in early 1900's; this mentions Hannah living in Kosse in southern Limestone County. Another letter was from Hannah's daughter, Lizzie (Mrs. J.S. Dean) who at the time was also living in Kosse. Survey of Kosse Cemetary on Genweb includes the following names:

Elliott Mrs. Hannah 1839-1920
Dean Elizabeth Ann 1854-1933
Dean James S. 1851-1932

I am not sure if latter 2 names are connected to this line (good coincidence maybe?).

If anyone can shed some light on this, or if any of Hannah's descendents are out there, I'd love to hear from you.
