I have a great-great aunt, Emma E. Root, who married a Manorris "Norris" Aikin in Cleveland, Ohio on 3 Oct 1848. I can find them on the 1850, '60, '70, and '80 Census. Norris was a carperter (except for the 1880 census when he was a farmer) and they lived in Brooklyn Township, Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Emma died in 1888 and Norris died on 18 January 1899. No children are ever mentioned. Emma was born about 1821 in Cooperstown, New York and Norris was born about 1821/2 in Ohio. The name is spelled Aikin, Aiken, Akins, as well as Aikin in the obit, wedding announcement and the census.
I Would like to know more about Manorris if anyone can help.... Who were his parents, any brothers/sisters, did he and Emma have any children, etc.
