Controversy about Lynne pedigree, Kerry Evening Post, 1893

There is a controversy about the pedigree of Martha Lynne (who married Blennerhassett) in the letters page of the Kerry Evening Post in Jan-Apr 1893.

The controversy is between genealogists James Franklin Fuller (born 1835) and Mary Agnes Hickson (born 1825).

Essentially, Hickson is wrong, and Fuller, Foster and Green are right.

Some of the letters are also in pp.102-104 of vol.4.
