    El Dorado, Kansas - August 14, 1906. To: Dr. R. Aikman, Ft. Scott, Kansas. My Dear Doctor: I have recently received the book containing the history of the Aikman family, and it has been of great interest to me. I am 79 years of age, but am quite strong. I would enjoy meeting with members of the Aikman family at their next meeting, or reunion. I have met only one or two of the Aikman family other than of my own immediate family. I feel that it might be of interest to the family to know something of our ancestorial history. There is one established fact, and that is, the Aikman family is of Scottish origin. My grandfather, Alexander Aikman, was born in Scotland and was in the Revolutionary war. He was killed at the Battle of Brandywine. He married and settled, I think first, in New Jersey and then at Carlisle, Pennsylvania, where my father, John Aikman, and his sister, Elizabeth Aikman, were born. My grandfather, Alexander Aikman, had several brothers who came to America with him, but I am unable to give their names. My father and his sister moved to Laurel County, Kentucky, about the year 1797. He was born in 1771 and died at the age of 73. He had a good education for that day and was engaged in the practice of medicine in Kentucky. He was regarded as a man of high character. I well remember his high arched forehead which is characteristic of our family. My father had a son, Alexander, who died at the age of 22, and a daughter, Ann, who died a great many years ago. As for myself, I was raised in Laurel, Kentucky, and held several positions of trust. I moved to Butler County, Kansas, in 1871, where I have since resided. My family consists of myself, wife, and four boys: Granville P. Aikman, who for a number of years has been Circuit Judge of the 13th Judicial District of Kansas; Christopher L. Aikman, who is now Prosecuting Attorney of Butler County, Kansas, and has just been re-nominated for another term; John S. Aikman, who resides in Denver, Colorado, and who is a fine business man; and Conrad A. Aikman, of El Dorado, Kansas, a prosperous grain and coal merchant. My boys are all married and are keeping the name "Aikman" alive. In so far as I have any knowledge, one of the characteristics of the family, is uprightness in all the relations of life. The women of the family are amiable and exemplary wives and mothers. Longevity is another one of the characteristics of our family. I have been married 54 years, having married Miss Martha Graves of Laurel County, Kentucky. I have heard my son speak of you often, and I would be delighted to meet and talk with you. No doubt but what the same blood courses through our veins. My oldest boy died when he was nearly five years old, named Alexander. I wanted to keep the name in the family. With kindest regards, I remain very truly, W.A. Aikman - pages 20-21. Second Annual Reunion of the Aikman Family... August 22, 1906.
