Mary Moyer gd/ Anna Maria Bergey m Nice

I think I have a problem. This concerns (one or two) Mary Landis Moyer/s b ca 27 Feb 1814. who married (one or two) Abraham Nice/s. (no dob.)

MFH (Moyer Family History, 1895, A. J. Fretz) p58 has a Mary Moyer ( no dob) , d/ Abrahma
Moyer b 18 Mar 1785 d 09 May 1866 and Barbara Bergey Landis b 23 Mar 1788 d 13 Jul 1868.
She is shown m. Abraham Nice, Ind. of References, which connects me to p544. The only Abraham Nice I can see there is listed only as a child of Susan Moyer and William Nice (in other words, there is no further information).

MFH p414 has Mary Moyer b 27 Feb 1814 (dec'd) m Abraham Nice (his w2). NI. This Mary is d/Samuel Miller Meyer b 30 Aug 1770 d 30 Nov 1831 and Mary/Maria Bergey Landis b 04 Aug 1770 d 19 Apr 1860.

To complicate matters, it appears that Barbara B. Landis and Mary/Maria B. Landis are sisters, d/ Henry Cassel Landis and Anna Maria Bergey. )though that info is not in MFH.

I wonder if A.J. Fretz confused the two Marys. And if he did, to which family did this Mary belong.Are there two Abraham Nices that married cousins, both named Mary Moyer, though the Mary Moyer, d/ Samuel was Abraham Nice's w2. Or was there just one Abraham m2, perhaps 1st to Mary, d/ Abraham, & m2 Mary, d/ Samuel?

Do you have a different theory/explanation or idea? I just don't know what to think?

Mary Moyer would be a grand daughter of Anna Maria Bergey m Henry Cassel Landis. Does anyone know who Anna Maria and Henry Cassel are?
