Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Have you contacted the Social Security Administration, that is the only other place you would have that would have your information on your employment from that far back.
Also, you need to contact the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (http://www.pbgc.gov/).
Those are the only places that can help you locate what you need to find your pension, if any exists and if you did not cash out at the time.
