Great Grandmother Annie Beveridge and her husband David Aiken
Recently, this photo (and another) flew into my email inbox from my 2nd cousins who are the granddaughters of Georgina Aiken. Georgina was the sister to my grandmother Annie who married Thomas Broadfoot.

It is great to have some new cousins to help us with this complicated family. My research buddy, Rosalie, whose children are descended from my Aiken line through Georgina is relentless in finding records for our growing Aiken family tree.

This photograph is of David Aiken and his wife Annie Beveridge. They are buried in Georgia. They loved it there and retired and are buried there. [David and Annie Aiken]

The young man in the photo is their son, David and the little girl is little Annie. This little girl was adopted by her grandparents. I love how she is holding the arm of her grandfather.

Things were hard for this family but they worked it out to give their children a better life.
