Hi to all & a hearty thankyou, especially to Gadget for your great demonstration of research skills & lateral thinking.  Yes, we did discuss Parton & the Cunningham & Henderson connections.  Great memory. Also, a big thankyou to Don for the link to the 1832 map & ultimately solving the mystery.  So it was in Parton all along. 
Best regards
