Hi My 5th great-grandmother was Nell Adams. She was born in the mid-1770's, likely in the Columbia Co., PA. area. She married James Alexander Aikman around 1799 in Columbia Co. and died before 1812. She's buried somewhere in that county. I have recently gotten info which leads me to believeshe may have been the daughter of a Conrad Adams, an early settler in Columbia County who may have immigrated from New Jersey, where the Aikmans' also immigratd from. I'm working on that possibility now - looking for the family of a Conrad Adams in Columbia Co., PA.. The man you're searching for is about the same age as my "Nell" (Helen, Eleanor, Ellen) - perhaps they are related?
