AIKIN PRIVATE CEMETERY
a place now (1951) owned by Louis C. Conant, about 5 miles on
road from Tuscaloosa, are some broken tombstones, now used for a
The Conants have owned the place only a short time and the sidewalk had
been there for years. Parts of three stones were taken from a
cemetery back of the place, but no one knows where the cemetery was and
we could not find it. Probably all the stones were removed and it
was plowed under. We pieced the stones together with the
results. Copied 1950 by Pauline Jones Gandrud:
memory of John Franklin Aikin

Thank you Mrs Gandrud! What you had the foresight to do paid dividends to me forty years later in the 1990s! because Czarina M. Aikin is my Great Great Great Grandfather, Solomon B. Stewart's daughter! Fyi, after James L.G. Aiken died, she married a Leonard Mitchell Burford from Wilcox County. He died too, and Czarina is buried next to her mother and sisters in Cedar Lawn Cemetery, Scooba, Kemper County, Mississippi.
For the TN and AL folks, Czarina Stewart was born in either LCT, or Marion Co, AL. For the Mississippi folks, Czarina and hubby James L.G. Aiken lived next to parents Solomon B. and Sarah C. Stewart in Kemper Co or Leake Co, I don't remember which . For the Fayette AL folks, Solomon had land in Marion / Fayette, and I would bet you a dollar he may have been one of the reasons Glen Allen was originally known as Stewart's Gap. He had land there as well.
