Jean, Are you asking about David Aken of Chester Co SC ora person named David Aken Chester?
I have always been interested in any info on David Aken of Chester Co SC.
I have wondered about the relationship between:
1.Alexander Eakin, Sr. b. 1743; d. will probated 5 Aug 1805 in York Co SC.
2.William Akin, Sr. b. ?;d.will probated 12 Jul 1816 York Co SC (Will bk. D p. 114)
3.Thomas Eakins, Sr. b.abt. 1736;d.will dated 8 Dec 1814 Chester Co SC;buried in Indian Mound Cemetery Chester Co SC (age 78).
4.David Aken (Eakin) of Chester Co SC.
Alexander Eakin, Sr. was living in the Tryon Co (later York Co SC) area of SC/NC by 1765 or earlier when his son, William Akin (RW3530) was born there 8 Oct 1765.And William Akin Sr. was living close by Alexander Sr. by about the same date of 1765.
Since Alexander, Sr. and William, Sr. always lived nearby each other in SC/NC one could assume that they are brothers and since Thomas lives so close by them and is about the same age one would be led to believe he was a brother, also.
Do you have more info on David Aken? age? name of wife?name of children? when he died?
