|Note||Aikman Vrooman appears in the 1901 census at Goderich in Huron West, on E-6, page 7, with his family. He is said to be a mariner, so it appears that he was involved in Great Lakes shipping.|

Greenwood Cemetery's database (Owen Sound), shows Aikman's burial as September 9, 1947, but the death notice in the Toronto Star states that the burial at Greenwood will be on the 11th.
