John Aitken was born in about 1884 in Methlick, ABD, the son of John Aitken and Rachel Cardno.
He married Elspet (Elsie) Burr at 18 Nellfield Place in Aberdeen on 15 December 1906. The witnesses were James Hector Aitken and Jeannie M Burr.
Elsie was born in Tyrie in 1878 (although her marriage registration suggests she was born in about 1882). She was the daughter of James Burr and Margaret Kynoch.
Prior to her marriage to John Aitken, Elsie had a son (father unknown), Charles Burr, born in Bridge Street, Strichen on 29 October 1902
Elsie died in the Epidemic Hospital, Strichen on 25 June 1910.
John (aged 26) is recorded in the 1911 census in West Street, Strichen. He was a railway porter. Listed in his household were his stepson, Charles Burr (aged 8), and his son (presumably by Elsie), John Aitken (aged 1).
I am keen to know what happened to John Aitken (snr), Charles Burr and John Aitken (jnr)
