which was Carol Gunter’s Great-grandfather.
He states that “This writing met with many unexpected difficulties and acknowledged it to be quite imperfect, but hopes that someone in the future may find it a fruitful source of research and this very humble beginning may be a nucleus to something more extensive and reliable in the future”.
