Published repeatedly in the Lewisburg Chronicle in 1862

1 Lewis Aikey
------------- ---------------------------
Birth:         21 Jan 1789, Pennsylvania
Death:         22 Apr 1862, West Buffalo, Union County, Pennsylvania1
Burial:        24 Apr 1862, Mazeppa, Union County, Pennsylvania
Father:        Ludwick Ache (not verified?  Another researcher suggests it might be Thomas b. 1761)

Found in 1790 Census Buffalo Twp, PA. Tenants: John Aikey and Alexander Aikey. Single Men: Lewis Aikey:  The single man could not be Lewis Aikey's father because Lewis was 1 yr old in the 1790 Census.
 No Aikey in the 1800 Census. He must have moved here from another state, perhaps New Jersey.  He would have been 21 in 1800 and might have been living with his parents still. OR the surname spelled incorrect.
Lewis Aikey Jr' death ertificate tells us that his mothers maiden name was Jane Reed.
