Received 31 December 2003 - Concerning Nell Aiken Newland

My name is Jennifer Dickson, and my maiden name is father's family is from Transylvania and Henderson counties. I was looking through the site, and I know you'll need backup for this, but my great-great aunt's name is misspelled on the "1947 Genealogical Register N.C.D.A.R." transcribed by Philip Underwood-Sheppard. She was Nell Aiken Newland, not "Mell."  Her daughters are still alive and well, and I could get you in touch with them if needed. Her name can also be found on articles in the Transylvania County Heritage book and others. She is buried in Davidson River Cemetery, not far from her ancestors, Lambert and Sarah Clayton.

Transylvania County, NC Marriage Record Volume 7 includes a license applied for by Dr. Chas L. Newland for himself and Nell Aiken.  Rev. Joseph H. West signed the certificate of marriage for Chas L. Newland and Nell Aiken as well as witnesses Chas F. Aiken, Th. H. Shipman and H. C. Aiken.  I am trusting that Dr. Newland knew the name of his bride.  The error was likely a transcription error (they happen) and has been corrected here January 2, 2004.  Thanks Jennifer for your information!  Linda Hoxit Raxter
