I am searching for a Jane Aiken b@1731 who married James Crossett. They are mentioned in Chester NH
I have some old information from a David W. Crossett from Warren PA. He had a search done in 1949 by a Merton T. Goodrich. His report said...
"John Aiken, was born in Ireland about 1689, and came to this country, it is said, with John Tolford, who was in Bradford in 1724. He appears first on Chester records in 1730:
He appears to have been and energetic business man, and his wife, whose maiden name was Karr, is reported to have been a bery shrewd manager after his decease, and gave their children a good education for the time. They had two sons, John Jr., and James. John Jr., was a milwright, and married. They had five daughters:
Margaret, m. William Graham
Martha, M. John Waddell, and d. March 23, 1817 age 88 yrs.
Jane, M, James Crossett, at Long Meadow, and went to the Mohawk country.
Elizabeth, M. a Taylor, of Derry and has descendants there
Mary, b. 1739, married John Karr, of the east part of Derry
John Aiken's will is dated Nov 22, 1750 he died Dec 1, 1750"
Have you any info on this Aiken family?
