James Franklin Fuller's confused pedigree

The Fuller pedigree [Fuller, 1910] by James Franklin Fuller is very confused. It shows:

Which is clearly impossible (note the dates).
It also shows:

Which is clearly impossible (note the dates).

  

Confused correction

Fuller makes a correction to the above in [Fuller, 1912-13]. He says William (who married Ellinor Hodder), George and Thomas (who married Lydia Green) should be brothers.
But this raises more questions than it answers.
First, he already had William (who married Jane Harnett) as their brother. What happens to him now?
Second, it does not address the problem with the dates for William (who married Jane Harnett) and his sons.




Corrected pedigree

We start with:


William Fuller,
born probably c.1700,
obtained a lease of lands near Tralee, Co.Kerry, in 1733,
mar Jane Harnett [brother of James Harnett of Sunday's Well, Cork],
the will of her brother James Harnett, dated 1779, refers to his nephew Thomas and the latter's three sons [Fuller, 1868],
William was bur 1768,
Jane was bur 1774,
had issue:


Thomas Fuller,
the baptism date of 1709 for him in [Fuller, 1910] seems impossible if he has a father living 1768, a mother living 1774 and an uncle living 1779,
more likely born c.1730,
mar (licence 1757) to Ann Purcell [born 1736],
mar licence thought NOT to be 1767,
appointed Sheriff of Cork in 1774,
will dated 1790, proved 1791,
had issue:


  1. James Fuller,
    inherited from his grand-uncle James Harnett by his will of 1779,
    mar 1788 [Fuller, 1866, p.356] to Elizabeth Gun [born post-1765, descendant of Edward III],
    other sources give mar 1783, which is less likely because would be long gap until children,
    adopted surname Harnett after death of his father 1791,
    "James Fuller Harnett", of Aghamore, Co.Kerry,
    will dated 15 Jan 1794, see abstract on p.192 in [Fisher Mss Will Notes A] (also here),
    he died Jan-Mar 1794,
    will proved 19 Mar 1794,
    Elizabeth re-married Jan-May 1794 to William Ponsonby,
    her children lived with her and Ponsonby (Sara married in Crotto, where her husband Daniel Guion writes from),
    had issue:

    1. Sara Harnett,
      or Sarah, born 1792 or 1793 (according to ages given in census and at death),
      "Sarah Fuller Harnett" in father's will 1794,
      "Sara Guion" in her own will,
      would be named after maternal grandmother Sarah Stoughton,
      [Notebook of Alphons Albers] calls her "Miss Sally", and says she "was a beautiful girl, but was called on account of her frightful temper the beautiful fiend",
      mar c.1809 to Daniel Guion.

    2. Thomas Fuller Harnett, born 1793,
      who was hanged for forgery in 1820.


  2. John Fuller,
    inherited from his grand-uncle James Harnett by his will of 1779,
    adopted surname Harnett after death of his father 1791,
    "John Fuller Harnett".


  3. Capt. Edward Fuller,
    who married in 1791 to Elizabeth Blennerhassett.

Meant to be Elizabeth Gun ("mother of Mrs. Guion - Mrs Harnett") except seems far too old for her.
She was born born post-1765 and died 1812, age less than 47.
