Elizabeth Aikens married William Nash 1799 in Nova Scotia. They and their children lived in the Guysborough, NS area. I believe Elizabeth's father was Samuel Aikens. According to family lore William Nash or his father came from Ireland to the U.S. They were loyalists during the American Revolution and supposedly went from NY to Nova Scotia. I have documents from Nova Scotia during that period showing both Samuel Aikens and John Nash- who I believe are the respective fathers of my Elizabeth Aikens andWilliam Nash. If you have additional information to confirm this connection please let me know.
