Received 31 December
2003 - Concerning Nell Aiken Newland
My name is Jennifer
Dickson, and my maiden name is Aiken...my
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
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!
