Eva, you have great information on the Nye family.My family records were copied out of my g.grandmother's Bible and clearly states that Alexander McCutchen was married to Mary Magdalena Nye from Hagerstown, MD.The birthdate you gave (4/5/1797) is quite compatible with the time frame in which my Alex. would have become married.I do not think that there were 2 Mary Magdalena Nyes in Hagerstown during the 1790s or early 1800s, but one never knows.Alexander McCutchen & his family settled in Delaware Co., Ohio around 1820 - 1825, but I do not have the exact date handy.Familysearch.org shows a Mary Magdalena or Polly Nye b. 05 Apr 1791 in Hagerstown, but marrying a John Welsheimer in Ohio on 09 Mar 1823.The same website (LDS) shows a Mary M. Nye b. 26 Dec. 1785 but dying the same date.The same website shows Mary M. Nye, b. 5 Apr 1791, who was christened25 Apr 1797, marrying John Christy on 5 Mar. 1811 in Fairfield, Ohio,and, later marrying John Welsheimer on 09 Mar 1823. NONE OF THEM MARRYING AN ALEX. MC.I will add:There are many conflicts on familysearch.org!I found a "Mary M. McCutchen" gravesite in the Goddard Cemetery in Delaware County and I wonder if that was my Mary Magdalena Nye-McCutchen????? Any thoughts?
