Welcome to Aiken ...
Although we found mention of Aiken during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Aiken was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists.
While we are confident that Aiken was located in Effingham County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Aiken to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Aiken - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Aiken, please Contact Us.
