Thanks for the reply but I'm not sure. At this time I can't make a connection with your Best and mine. I have Turner Best or a Travis Best. Do you have these names in your research?

I am holding the Howell Best Bible in my lap at the moment. The first birth recorded is: John Best, Son of Howell Best, Prudence his wife, was born in the year of our Lord, 1797, December 29th.

Under marriages is the following: John Best, Sarah Brown, were married November 30th, AD 1820.

I have the birthdates of all eleven children, as well as the marriage and deathdates of Howell and Prudence, if you need them.

I descend from Howell's son Jacob. I live about 12 or 13 miles from Howell's home on Dark Branch. I inherited the Bible from my grandmother Fussell, who was a Best.

John Best/Sarah Brown, Howell Best/ Prudence

Jim, I am convinced that my 4th great grandmother Rebecca Best came from Present Day Greene Co. NC old Dobbs Co. I have'nt been able to put her any family there as yet though. In your research have you run across any Rebecca Best that may have married a Bartholemew Fields in Darlington SC. I am at ropes end with end of my line. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also Rebecca Best Fields son, Bartholemew Fields Jr married a Margaret Best who is b. 2-19-1854 and d. 6-27-1892. I have thought it may be his first cousin. It is also his first marriage. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Ed Pope jr...
