    She mar 2ndly, pre-1776, to Robert Blennerhassett and had issue.
    At 3rd marriage in 1807, she was age 65 and husband was age 36. The ages are so strange that the Rector notes them.

Extract from EAGAR in [Burkes Irish, 1958].
Lists John Moore Eagar's wife as "Anne" and as widow of "John Blennerhassett".

Extracts from BLENNERHASSETT in [Burkes Irish, 1976].
These now give her husband as Robert Blennerhassett, but still call her Anne.

She is "Avice" in her marriage in 1807 to John Moore Eagar.
From Tralee par records.
