I am looking for information about my great grandfather John Christie Aitken born in 1867 Castle Douglas, Scotland. His mother was Agnes Christie and his father was James Aitken. Would like to make contact with living relatives.
John Aitken was in the Royal Navy and jumped ship in Portland Oregon. For years afterwards, he went under the name of William Black until he received a pardon from the King of England. He married Emily Bushell (from England) in Oregon.
Please let me know if anyone has information on this person!
