I can not remember the name of the book that I got this information from but it had to do with Virginia history. Many names are listed with the Arons also the Slaves were listed as well as I can recall. I am from this line and two of my later g parents were George Washington and Charlie Clay Aaron and Charlie's Wife was Ida Clay Aaron. I have alot of iformation because I was able to listen to the old folks years ago that liked to talk about connections. Yes this is a Jewish Name and I can think of better name to have under the sun. I have found that it was written many ways by the court houses but it began with the German spelling Aron. There could have been some that came from the country of Germany. One of our family was a Minister in the German Reform Baptist Church which was located at Callands, the first County Seat of Pittsylvania County in Virginia just past Chatham the present County Seat.
