James Aikens (or Akins)(may have first or middle name of "Samuel"), b. 1776; d. October 1839 in Lafayette, Ogle Co., Illinois. He married Margaret Matthews January 19, 1802 in Cecil Co., MD and he married Harriet Hardesty December 30, 1829 in Franklin Co., Ohio.(Possibly he was married before both of these wives, but I am not sure.)He lived in the Lynchburg, Virginia area at one point. His sons Charles B. and Richard B. Aikens were born there.Around 1811 or 1814 he went to Coshocton County, Ohio with Benjamin Robinson. He is buried at the Chapel Hill Cemetery in Lafayette, Ogle Co., Ill. Do you have any information on him or on his wives, children, or especially his parents.I am trying to research his parents and also the parents of Margaret Matthews, and would very much appreciate any information you might be able to add. Thanks.
