Magdelena Woods, daughter of Michael Woods and Mary Campbell, married first John McDowell. Two years after his death in 1742 she married Benjamin Borden Jr. They had 2 girls who died in 1753. 
Research is needed for the children attached to this profile:
John McDowell passed away in 1742. Birth dates of Michael, James and Samuel are after that. Magdelena was over 63 when James and Samuel were born.
Only children fathered after 1744 should be named Borden - Was Martha named "McDowell"?

I saved it anyway after making this note and leaving the following comment on her page:
James McDowell and Samuel McDowell were more than 67 years after the birth date of their mother. Could they be John McDowell's grandchildren? Fuller-5853 14:10, 8 May 2017 (EDT)
Note NI1402There are conflicting stories about this lady on the Internet. She was either born in Virginia or in a castle in Ireland. She lived to be 100, 103, 107. One of her children by her first husband, Captain McDowell, was president of the Constitutional Congress; another was a colonel in the Revolution. Dr. Cole contributes: She was the grandmother of Dr. Ephraim McDowell, founder of operative gynecology. Further research obviously needed. (Ted Pack)

carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Magdalena:
