The file contains the addrStr Balance Amount sent (0) And such and then 2 transactions

The address does show the 50 bitcoin. One of the 2 transactions also show the same. However I’m not sure how to get the priv key from this. The second transaction it shows is not recognized by block explorer. Is that a hash of the priv.key? I ran it threw sha256 but still nothing.

Bitcoin transactions and addresses are public knowledge; there is no way to calculate a private key by looking at a transaction/address.

You'll need to find the private keys themselves, otherwise your coins will remain un-spendable.
