I have five documents on my grandfather, Jefferson Aikman:1906 marriage record which lists place of birth as St. Clair County, IL; 1910 US Census Sangamon County, IL; 1918 WWI Draft Registration; 1920 US Census Sangamon County, IL; 1920 Divorce Decree Sangamon County, IL.
A search of Sangamon County birth records turned up nothing.
I sent for birth record from St. Clair County, IL.Today, I received the response:Not In St. Clair County.
I've been 30 years trying to find place of birth, parents, place of death, all to no avail.
Sharri's inquiry gave me hope that I could find information on Jefferson, supposedly older brother of her Theodore Aikman.
Search of any database I come across is not revealing.
