Since we have corresponded before, I might be repeating myself, but I did manage to consolidate some of the families in this posting and confirm that "my" John McDonald had at least two, possibly 3 wives and moved from Watervliet in Albany Co, to Cobleskill, Schoharie Co.
I'm not sure how James McDonald fits in since I don't have a James in my direct line and have only pieced together bits of information from church and census records. He is probably related but I don't think he is a son of Lydia Pangborn and John McDonald.
The only member of my known family who may still have been in Schoharie Co. for the 1866 atlas would be John McDonald's son Robert W. McDonald who is in the 1860 census for Richmondville but has moved to Darien, Genessee Co, NY by 1870. Apparently, he built a church on his land in Schoharie so I'll check the map and see if that is listed there. His children also seem to have moved to other parts of NY or to MI except his son Sylvester who is in the 1870 census of Richmondville.
Thanks for the update, though, and keep in touch!
