NOTE: I have transcribed this using voice recognition, and even though I have trolled through it looking for errors, this does not mean that the following transcription is error free. It is the best that I can do at this time – given other calls on my time. I have yet to run down information on many of the names – but have left room in footnotes to add it later.
