My Czech reading level is 5% lower than Rene's ;-),
but I did scan that book for recognizable names, while Ree was
hunting in the card catalog.  I got the impression that the 
relevant parts of the book were indeed based on sources
which we already knew.

My recolletion is that Brumbaugh's name occurs near the place where
Baresch's name is mentioned. Is that so?
All the best,
