Hi - I descend from John Aikman, born 1695 in Scotland. He brought his family to Morris Co., NJ around 1740. During the Rev. War his son, Alexander (my line) moved his family to Columbia Co., Pennsylvania to settle.Alexander's oldest son, Captain John Aikman, even though just a youngtser, served as a Loyalist during the Rev. War and moved up to Ontario, Canada (Canada West as it was called then) where he was awarded land for his war duty. Later, his younger brother, my 4th great-grandfather, James Alexander Aikman, also moved to Ontario with his family. I believe I can help with your Canadian research and USA research also. You may reach me at my e-mail address.
