hello jim, george best was my grandmas fist husband. they married in st austell cornwall, 1907. they had 2 children, ivy and len. he moved to america on his own in 1911. he altered his date of birth by exactly 10 years to avoid the us ww1 draft. unfortunately, he forgot to alter the day and month! he therefore was 88 years at death, and not 98 as shown in his obituary at lakewood cemetary minnesota. he married minerva omega ovitt, and they are buried side by side. this info can be verified by the website my gran was born martha dungey in 1886. my dad stanley best was born in 1913. he took his mothers married name of best, although his real dads name was joseph charles may. kind regards simon best
