Sharon, Please excuse my haste in reporting that Henry Best II could be Elizabeth's Patriot father. He is her brother.
However, the same researcher notes that Henry Best I, her father, was a Lt. in the N. C. Militia in the Revolutionary War.It may be fruitful to contact the reseacher who has posted his contact information online for more information.
This is all of my current information. If there are errors/additions please notify me. I would be happy to add your family to my tree if there is a connection. Contact: Tel: 914-833-9028; Fax 914-833-9055.
