Seeking any information on any BEST family members who worked as miners in the Keweenaw Penninsula area.

Particularly, a George Best who is now buried in Minnesota. He worked at the Allouez mine in MI, also at the Hollinger Mine at Timmins, Ontario, Canada until 1917 He died in 1973 in Minneapolis, Hennepin Co, Minnesota. He is buried with his Wife., Minerva Omega Ovitt formerly Thompson & Hicks.

Victor Emanuel Best and his sons Alfred Victor Best; Alfred was killed in a rock fall at the Allouex Mine in Mohawk, MI at 19yrs old in 1914. Victor and his Wife Annie Williams died at Flint, MI but are buried in Osceolo County, MI as is Alfred.

Harry Best (John Henry Best ) and his Wife Annie Mellow (Philipa Annie Mellow) and sons Carlson Best and Darefred Best who were last heard of at Calumet, Houghton Co, Michigan.

Any info on these brothers would be appreciated, especially any descendants or details on Harry and Annie Best who I haven't been able to locate where they went after Calumet.
