Best & Leland - death information needed
Posted by: Ruth G Hastie (ID *****5743) Date: October 08, 2010 at 19:48:11

I am looking for death information (or obits) for Susan Leland Best, the wife of Lambert Morris Best. Susan was born about 1880 in NE. Her father was George Leland. She and Lambert had three children who were born in NE - Albert C, Merrill, and Ida May.

By 1910, this family had moved to Sheridan, WY where several more children were born. Sometime between 1920 and 1930, Susan and Lambert were divorced. She returned to Nebraska with her sons Albert and George (b: 1914 in WY). In the 1930 census, they were living in Red Willow County and running a truck farm. The census record indicates that Susan owned the farmland. It seems likely that she obtained the land from her father, George Leland, who was 85 years old at the time and was living with Susan and her sons. This raises the possibility that Susan was born in Red Willow Co, although that is pure speculation on my part.

According to the US Public Records Index, Susan's son Merrill Best also returned to Nebraska at some point. Between 1993 and 1995, he was living in McCook. Given his age, he probably died there.

If someone could help me locate death dates for the following, I would be most grateful -

Susan Leland Best (1880-?)
Albert C Best (1903 - ?)
Merrill Best (1904-?)

Thank you.
Ruth Hastie
