I have questions about this information. I wrote to the person who posted it but have not gotten a reply. I asked them:

  1. Where did you find documentation?
  2. Will you share it?
  3. Is there a story about how James Andrew and his son Robert happened to die in the Atlantic Ocean, NJ?
  4. Three of James Andrew and Janet’s children had the same birth years — (1685) were they triplets?
  5. Two of James Andrew and Unknown’s children had the same birth years — (1710) another multiple? story there?
  6. John McClure (1720-1804) had to have married Nancy Young first — before Jane Fleming if we go according to children’s birth
    years.  Can we verify?
