  • Notes 
    • While looking for Louise Best/Schmidt parents in Berkshire,MA. I found another Best family. Charles and Marie Best had a daughter named Louise. Michael and Margret had a daughter named Louisa. Both families lived and worked in Berkshire Glass Works. Michael and Margret moved to Cleveland, NY with kids listed in 1880 center street. Louisa Best/Town living with Michael and Margret is their daughter. What happened to unknown Town??? Louise Best married gasper Schmidt 1874 in Berkshire and does not come to Cleveland till after 1880. Both families are coming from the same area in Germany. This explains the different dates of birth and different spelling of name. Could be cousins.......Michael and Charles probably related....bothers maybe....need to go back one more generation. But now I am convinced we are dealing with two different families. two different women. [8]
