Hi, I went thru most of the info I have but no connection with your family yet. Will look more and see if I find anything. The Boulder County-Nebraska Territory Census of 1860 lists Aikins who were from Ohio-my Aikins were from Morgan County, Ohio,went to Indiana where family was-a Brother I believe.From there they went to Pawnee County,Nebraska.
William Aikins was a Probate Judge there. A son and other Aikins then went to Kansas, Ottawa County area.Some were in the Land Rush and settled in Oklahoma.
There is a good chance these families are related to yours,all we need is a break to tie them together.
