you are right, Christian, it's not certain the 1st and the 2nd are siblings,  i assumed they were 3 siblings since the 1st and the 2nd have the same parents, and the 2nd and the 3rd are siblings, 
Sdlg. OO-26-1-2 = Northward Ho X Rock Star  
Sdlg.  0026-3-4 = Northward Ho x Rock Star
Sdlg.  0026-5-2, sib
unfortunatety, it is too late for us to ever know for sure.
GLADIATRIX =  Sdlg. OO-26-1-2 = Northward Ho X Rock Star
I'M REDDY     Ostentatious X Zurbrigg OO 43 "Vivid": (0026-3-4 "Horns": (Northward Ho x Rock Star) x 0026-5-2, sib). Friendship 2003
i would have loved to see this "Vivid " unregistered one!
i've never known Lloyd Zurbrigg, but i have pieces of his legacy in every corner of my garden, and in almost every seedling that is growing here!
I wish i still could thank him for what he has left us!

Many breeders have unique systems... I would read the highlighted
numbers as some kind of year code.

Naturally it's just a guess.
