Any known descendants of Andrew McFadden (McFadin) in this project? He was b. 1675? in Scotland, then to Ireland (Bann Valley), then to what is now Maine?

There are several people in the project that think they are descended from him, but unfortunately none of them match each other! So we're still seeking other descendants to to firmly establish which genetic signature is actually descended from Andrew.
I,also, am a descendent of Andrew, who was born 1675 in Scotland, moved to Ireland, married his second wife ther and had 3 sons. In 1720 he and his family sailed to Maine & settled on Merrymeeting Bay on a homestead he called Somerset. Due to danger from Indians, he moved his family to Georgetown, where he petitioned the Plymouth Co. for a land grant. I have only a little knowledge of the family linage of his sons, Andrew or Daniel, as my family descends from his son, James. This line had children in Maine, Mass., New York, Canada (near Isle LaMott in Lake Champlain) and then moved to southern MN and finally to N.D where my grandmother was born. The McFadden’s of this line served in the Rev.War, War of 1812, And the Civil War. At least one or more of the branches of my direct line settled in the area of Quebec north of Lake Champlain. I would love to hear from anyone descendent of Andrew who came to Maine. I have also asked a question on the DNA thread, for advice for finding a qualified male from our line to take the Y-DNA test.
