This surname is seen as Vanaiken, Van Aiken, Vanaker, Van Aker, Vanaken, Vanakin and Vanacken and Van Acken in cesusu records. This photo is somewhat light in tone, but still a beautiful image. Scans are enhanced and sharpened to clarity.There is a brown line marking to left of his portrait which does not touch his image. His surname is clearly wrotten as Van Aken, as the N in Van, and the N in Aken are the same. Dederick appears about 13, which means this was taken in the later 1860's, about 1868-1870. This photo was found in Woodstock, Ulster County, New York NY.
