The McFadyen Immigrants

Are they Jim's McFadyens?  I believe so.  Margaret McFadyen (McFadden in the record) is listed as a "spinster" (it is believed she was a widow when she immigrated from Scotland to the United States).  The time frame is correct and the children match the known children of Margaret McFadyen almost perfectly.  There is an additional Margaret (age 23) that was unknown to me; she is an anomaly in the record.  James, age 5, was Jim's ancestor.
