delta blues flowchart of influence?

I'm looking for a flow chart of delta blues influence - mostly individuals starting with Henry Sloan or Charley Patton onward. I realize there was a lot of cross influence, but, for example, historian Robert Palmer mentions how Patton dogged Sloan, how Chester Burnett learned a lot from Patton, how Lockwood was taken under Robert Johnson's wing.

So I'm curious if people have charted this out a bit, both personally (one person influencing another) and musically (how one song evolved from another or group)?

Thanks if available,
