I just found your blog. I'm writing from Londonderry, New Hampshire (about 35 miles north of Boston). Our town was settled in 1719 by Scots Irish presbyterians, and it was originally called "Nutfield". I'm going to recommend your blog to our Historical Society. By the way, there was a very famous McCain/McKean family from our town- you can read about them on my own blog.
