Let there be light! You've done it, my friend! The mystery combination has been solved and we have power and lights! Thanks for all your help, Ray (and others)! I learned a lot from this experience (and hopefully others will learn from this). Number one, make a diagram of the original wiring pattern before disconnecting anything. And secondly, don't bite off more than you can chew. If it weren't for this forum I would have eventually had to call a licensed electrician to help. And thank goodness we didn't have a need to summons the fire department either! I will be praising this forum via social broadcast to let others know how helpful it is! I was going to upload a pic of the installed lights but the uploader is acting up. I try again later. Thanks again, Ray!

Glad you got it. Thanks for letting us know but you need to thank Joe too. He's the one who saw the 2-conductor cable in the 2-gang box. I couldn't see it at first even when he pointed it out.
