BMDB data

     John McAdie was born say 1710 ?Watten, CAI, SCT.1
     John McCadie married Elspet Sutherland on 24 Feb 1732 Watten, Par. of Watten, CAI, SCT, entry reads: January 5th matrimonially contracted John McCadie in Lynegar and Elspet Sutherland alias Donaldson in Houstry Dun and by these and themselves to consummate marriage within 4 days accomplished February 24th 1732.2,3
     John McAdie was assumed to have died aft. 1755 Lynegar, Par. of Watten, CAI, SCT.
     John and descendants had connections to Lynegar until the late 1700s. Given that my Robert McADIE was also at Lynegar, albeit not until the late 1700s, it is tempting to think that there is a connection between the families. Perhaps a direct male line McADIE descendant would be interested in joining the McADIE Surname DNA project?
