Recently found the furthest back generation here with information on the Bordewick and Linchausen lines, though received no response to my email when I contacted the person, so I have no way of verifying this bit yet. My line came to me complete through Jon Olsen Tiller, and I've no information beyond the basics for his wife, so any information on this line would be very welcome.
