Kennedy - Lincoln dissimilarities Aug 15, 2002

My mother\'s maiden name was Kennedy. My mother\'s maiden name was not Lincoln.

As a result my second forename is Kennedy. My second forename is not Lincoln.

I have a niece called Kenedee (sic). I do not have a niece called Lincoln.

The capital of Nebraska is Lincoln (so my encyclopedia tells me). No state in the USA has a capital called Kennedy.

There is a county is England called Lincolnshire. There is no county in England called Kennedyshire. There is a city in England called Lincoln and it is in Lincolnshire. Even if there was a county called Kennedyshire it probably wouldn\'t have a city called Kennedy.

Kennedy was a democrat. Lincoln was a Republican.

Kennedy said at the Berlin Wall \"Ich bin ein Berliner\". Lincoln didn\'t even bother to visit the Berlin Wall.

I personally spoke to Kennedy when he visited Ireland. I don\'t remember ever having met Lincoln.

Is 1839 right?
As far as I know, internet references say 1838
