There is a pier in the middle - you can't see.

Ok. Sounds good to me. After you have the foundation under control, we'll just have to figure out how to turn around your roof!

So I am still confused where or what but it looks like they scabed something to the side joist of the living room and hung the kitchen joists off of that. I think I like the idea of removing the sheeting from the kitchen floor so you can figure out what to do with structure with out crawling under the house.

I just read through your thread and I am one that likes to save an old house when possible. Neal and the others have given some good advice. BUT the best advice was to get a framer to come in and help, or at least as a consultant. Maybe a friend of a friend but you will be all the wiser with having someone knowledgeable look at this first hand. Make sure he is a professional framer and not just someone who does occasional framing.
You've done great learning how to post pictures and using text to label them, now get someone to teach you about the framing. It shouldn't cost you that much for a consultant and then you and your buddys can go to work on fixing it. It does look like a place worth saving.
