James, Thanks for sharing the article!There are some inaccuracies and confusion over the Alexanders.The Alexander that came from Scotland and settled in New Jersey died there in 1765.One of his sons, Alexander (born 1740)was killed at Brandywine in 1777.This Alexander's widow and 2 children did come to Kentucky either with, or shortly after, an Aikman nephew, James S. Aikman and his family...early 1790s. Alexander's widow remarried in Kentucky and she and the 2 children remained there until their deaths.James S. Aikman-born 1754, was a son of John Aikman-born 1735(this John was the son of the "original" Alexander and brother of the Alexander killed at Brandywine).James S. and HIS son, John came to Daviess Co, Indiana in 1811.This John Aikman born 1783 in PA built the first mud brick house in Daviess County. Two of his sons, Barton Stone and Samuel eventually left Daviess County and settled in Vermillion County Indiana. Samuel Aikman was there in the 1830's.Barton Stone Aikman was on the 1840 Census in Vermillion, but had moved there earlier in the 1830s.It is quite an interesting family to say the least. Again, thanks for sharing your article.You never did say how you relate to the Aikmans...just curious.I married another John Aikman...his Dad who is still living, was born and raised on that Aikman farm land in Washington, Daviess County, Indiana!!
