DNA-linked disconnected Blennerhassett families

DNA testing indicates a link of our family to the following disconnected families that descend somehow from Blennerhassett of Co.Kerry.
Unfortunately their exact descent from the main Blennerhassett family is not known.

The DNA match of our family with the following families may not actually be through the Blennerhassett line. But there is some evidence that, in both cases, it is through the Blennerhassett line.
