There is another way, you can change each receptacle to an individual GFCI by making the entire circuit a feed thru. You do have to change the way the circuit feeds each receptacle or it will not work.

gfci problem fixed

I just want to thank all of you good folks who tried to help me with this problem. I was SO close to actually fixing it myself when I went and bought and installed a new GFCI receptacle. However, it still wouldn't reset. Well, my good friend who knows a little bit about everything came over today and found out what I'd done. When installing the new receptacle, I had put the "line" where the "load" needed to and vice versa. As soon as he reversed the wires it reset and all my other receptacles came to life. Thank the Lord who know what the heck they are doing. Thank you all for trying to help me here.
