To which 'James Aiken' do you refer.There are many.When born? Where? Who were his parents?What state/county did he enlist from? I know of one 'James Aikens' who served in RevWar. He was born in Chesterfield county, VA c.1760, however, was living in Granville county, NC when he enlisted. His father was 'James Aiken,' also a resident of Granville county, NC, though born in Chesterfield county, VA.
