Looking for help sorting out a Best family in 18th century North Carolina

+3 votes
I adopted the orphaned profiles of Best-160 and Jones-4205 and their children. I am having trouble properly sourcing these profiles and sorting out the actual facts about what children this couple had. There is some dispute about how many of Thomas Best's children actually had Mary Ann Jones as their mother, with some saying the older children may have had as their mother a Ms. Smith. (See http://files.usgwarchives.net/nc/bertie/bios/jones80gbs.txt - which is a bit confusing because it refers to two contradictory genealogies.) And Thomas Best's will does not appear to list all of his alleged children. I haven't yet found documentation that their daughter Rebecca Best even exists. Any help sorting this family out would be welcome.
