There's one href="#top" on your page, in line 547.

There's no name="top" (dito no name= or id=top or "top")
on your page, so that href="#top" is in fact broken.

Counting line numbers can be difficult, apparently your
tool uses <CRLF> (^M^J) most of the time, but <LF> (^J)
near anything remotely related to <script>.

If I try "show document source" with my browser line 547
is shown as line 1080, each CRLF counted as two lines...
<sigh>

The validator gets it always right, you can ask it to
show the source (sorry, long URL)

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Ffreepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com%2F%7Eflorian%2Fo_f%2Fyrs%2F1818_o_f-1.htm&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&ss=1
 
In other words go to <http://validator.w3.org/detailed.html>,
enter your URL, check "show source", maybe uncheck "verbose",
click "validate", wait for the result, and in the result
find line 547 (truncated by me):
