Hope this isn't an old-hat topic. But, how accurate were W.B.Aitken's findings in "Distinguished families in America?"
Most of the data people are using on ancestry.com about both Aitkens and Bennets comes from his book. Not alot is supported by official sources. For example, he connects Mary Emmons to the Emans line... looking for proof, it seems he's connecting her to a Mary Anne Emmons.. but she has different birthday and hometown. Similarly, he connects Jeremiah Bennet to Sir John Bennet, but doesn't explain how.
