John Aitken m. Jane McDowell on 11/13/1796, probably in Chester County, PA.
They had 6 children: James McDowell Aitken (b. 11/26/1797) Marshall William Aitken (b. 12/7/1798) David Ankrem Aitken (b. 5/8/1801) Henry Lightner Aitken (b. 6/27/1803) James McDowell Aitken (b. 10/27/1805) Elizabeth J. Aitken (b. 11/27/1807)
I have no information on John Aitken other than one book which says he is "from Philadelphia".Most likely his family were either devout Presbyterians or fierce patriots - the children and grandchildren of James McDowell seemed to gravitate to those two type of individuals for their spouses.
Does anyone recognize this John Aitken and have any information to share?
