I have more than one Isabella Aitken in my family but am not sure I have a connection.Here is what I have:
Frances AITKEN was born on 4 February 1819 in Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Scotland.Her parents were John AITKEN and Isabella SCOTLAND.I don't have further information on Isabella but Frances AITKEN married Robert PATERSON on 15 November 1840 and I have information on their descendants.
I believe but have not yet proven that Frances had a sister Isabella.I believe this because I know that my cousins are members of the BIRKMYRE family though I am unsure how.I know that Adam BIRKMYRE married an Isabella AITKEN, that my grandmother had an “Aunt Bella” and that it would make chronological sense that she was Frances’s sister.I need to do more research on that though.
The other AITKEN and BIRKMYRE connection that a William BIRKMYRE married a Margaret AITKEN.Margaret died in Broom Lodge in Kilmacolm on June 20, 1883 at the age of 79.She may have been Frances’ aunt but unlikely a sister.If that were the case, I would be surprised that so many generations later my family and the Birkmyres were still friendly but it’s possible.
If anyone has additional information on anyone listed here, or would like more information on my lines, please e-mail me.
