(but I think from the errors you got, that A was what was used...i.e. they only did an OS remove not a cvs remove.)

I wouldn't edit the files by hand, but use rcs:
1) move the file from the dead directory back to its original location

2) find out the last version of the file before it got deleted:
rlog  file_name |grep 'revision ' |head -1 |cut -f 2 -d" "

3) assuming you get 1.14, do:
rcs -sEXP:1.14 file_name
