Update American Martyrs and The First Native American Saint

Due to problems with Disqus the original comments from Pete for this post disappeared even though they are visible on my Disqus admin page. 

Having informed Disqus, they then sent me a whole load of complicated computer code that was gobbledegook to me and beyond my capabilities to sort out, so I have replied and told them that it was their problem to resolve it. 

So 48 hours on, and still not having solved it I decided to cut and paste the original comments from Pete along with my reply- this time they are all in one combox.

Apologies to Pete and to the readers, and as for Disqus........I'm unimpressed and pretty disgusted!!
