Thats quite a ways back, have you tried:

Will take a look at it tomorrow if you like.  Try and post the data you have and sources. Have a nice evening. Mike.
thanks for your help. the data i have for this line is all family record, so i have no way to verify it.
Your site is probably a mix of several sources. And probably a real brickwall. Need to confirm which if any are correct. Sorry.
