Neal, Thanks for your reply. I'll check the Nebraska Territory Census. What I am trying to find is more info on James Aikens & his wife Margaret Matthews. When were they married? Who were their parents? (James Aikens father may be Richard Aikens).
Who is the William Aikins you mentioned? If you can find your Aikins information I'd be most grateful if you let me know.
Here's a little more of what I have: James Aikens b 1776 d Oct.1839 Lafayette, Ogle, Ill. His wife: Margaret Matthews b abt 1781 Cecil, Md. Married in Coshocton, Coshocton, Ohio
Children of James and Margaret: Charles Brookins Aikens b abt 1798 Virginia Richard Mentor Akinsb 1800 Virginia Capt. Thomas A. Akins b 1808 Maryland Samuel Avery Akins b 1811 Maryland Margaret Mary Akins b 1814 Pennsylvania Martha Ann Akins b 1816-1818 Ohio Elizabeth A. Akins b 1818-1820 Ohio
I have more on these children, if you are working on that part of the tree, let me know. Thanks again for your reply. Cindy
