I don't know if there is a connection or not.I do have the names of John Aitken's children:James b. 1857, Elizabeth b. 1859, Jennett b. 1861, Susannah b. 1863, Annie b. 1869, Mary Lindsay b. 1871 and Joseph b. ?.If I do find a family connection with George Valence Aitken, I'll try to let you know.They could have been brothers.Sorry I can't help more.
