Thank you for your question. I will do my best to assist you with your concerns. If you would like me to clarify my answer, I will be happy to do so.
I am sorry to hear that you are having difficulty. This is not a 'deal breaker', at least not completely. The reason is even if the easement description is incorrect, there are two separate laws that would still uphold this easement as a valid interest on the property. First, there is policy
in every state that finds an easement for any property that is otherwise considered to be 'land-locked'. In other words if this driveway is the only way to and from the land, this would be considered an 'easement by necessity' and would be upheld as valid.
Second, since you have been using this easement for 21 years, and it dates back to 1957, even if wrong, it has become a 'prescriptive easement', which is essentially an easement obtained via adverse use and possession
of the property. In either case the right to use the land remains, the next step may to get a quiet title
action in place to update the records, but that may take a significant time, which is why explaining that easements on the property still remain is likely the better option.
