Simon Best hello all, george was my grandma,s first husband. my aunt and uncle, ivy and len were his eldest children. i would love to see any photos of the family. i could fill in all the gaps of our family history, especially in cornwall, where george was born. the website to see is called [external link]. the whole family are on there. the website is run from a distant cousin of mine, liz williams. it is a fantastic site with 35 years of research! all of us with cornish ancestry is a great thing to be proud of. many early bests came to the us just after the mayflower in the 1640,s. i would love to here from any of you, very kind regards, simon best

Simon Best georges mother was ellen best, nee eddy, 1845-1936. i think george was her youngest child. she was a giant of a woman, well over 6 feet tall. my dad remembered her very well. sadly, he lost all his family photos during the coventry blitz in 1940. ellen is buried in nanpean cemetary, cornwall

Simon Best am i correct in saying that george was married to a lady called minerva? i have only recently discovered this. there must be many grandchildren [external link] does not matter what has happened in the past, they were different times, people had different values, and life goes on. i am glad to share all what i know about george, and his family history. it is more than fascinating, we have had a man hanged in public, many children who died in infancy etc, such was life in cornwall in those days, kind regards, simon best
