Descendants of Alexander McNutt

This has been a difficult family to piece together, because no list of his children appears in the McNitt and McNutt history.  The author says that "I am somewhat mixed as to the families of Uncle Daniel and Uncle Alexander. I know of some of them but am not sure whether they are of Uncle Daniel's or Uncle Alexander's family." 

Alexander appears to be unmarried in the 1820 census of Seneca, Sandusky County, Ohio (the male and female who were over 45 could be his parents).  In the 1830 census of Harris, Sandusky County, a wife and three daughters are listed.  In the 1840 census of Seneca County, a wife, two daughters, and two sons are listed. He and his family moved to Porter County, Indiana, in the 1840s and Alexander died there in 1849.  His widow Sarah and their three youngest children appear in the 1850 census of Lake County, Indiana under the spelling "McNut".
