http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martha_White

Martha White is a U.S. brand of flour, cornmeal, cornbread mixes, cake mixes, muffin mixes and similar products.

The Martha White brand was established as the premium brand of Nashville, Tennessee-based Royal Flour Mills in 1899. At that time, Nashville businessman Richard Lindsey introduced a fine flour that he named for his daughter, Martha White Lindsey.

The Martha White brand is probably most associated with its long-term sponsorship of the country music radio program, the Grand Ole Opry. The relationship began in 1948 and has existed continuously since then, making it one of the longest continually running radio show sponsorships known.

A jingle for the flour, written by Nashville songwriter Pat Twitty in 1953, was first performed from the stage of the Grand Ole Opry by bluegrass music artists Flatt and Scruggs. It is still in use today, having become a bluegrass standard and a signature number of Rhonda Vincent & the Rage.

Packaging for Martha White ingredients (flour, cornmeal) feature the likeness of three-year-old Martha White. The commercials for the products stress the fact that they are “self-rising” due to the presence of the trademarked leavening “Hot-Rize” or “Hot-Rize Plus”. Martha White has expanded its product offering beyond ingredients to include baking mixes.

Martha White merged with Beatrice Foods in 1975. In 1986, Beatrice, newly acquired by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, spun off its specialty foods and non-food brands as E-II Holdings. E-II attempted to take over American Brands in 1988, but instead American Brands purchased E-II. Martha White was sold off in 1989.

Martha White was purchased by the Pillsbury Company in 1994; the baking products of Pillsbury were spun off in 2001 under the name International Multifoods. The J.M. Smucker Co. acquired International Multifoods in 2005.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beatrice_Foods

Beatrice Foods Company was a major American food processing company.[1] In 1987, its smaller international food operations were sold to Reginald Lewis, a corporate attorney creating TLC Beatrice International, after which the majority of its domestic (U.S.) brands and assets were acquired by Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts (KKR), with the bulk of its holdings sold off. By the early 1990s, the remaining operations were ultimately acquired by ConAgra Foods.

The Beatrice Creamery Company was founded in 1894 by George Everett Haskell and William W. Bosworth, by leasing the factory of a bankrupt firm of the same name located in Beatrice, Nebraska. At the time, they purchased butter, milk and eggs from local farmers and graded them for resale. They promptly began separating the butter themselves at their plant, making their own butter on site and packaging and distributing it under their own label. They devised special protective packages and distributed them to grocery stores and restaurants in their own wagons and through appointed jobbers. To overcome the shortage of cream, the partners established skimming stations to which farmers delivered their milk to have the cream, used to make butter, separated from the milk. This led to the introduction of their unique credit program of providing farmers with hand cream separators so that they could separate the milk on the farm and retain the skim milk for animal feeding. This enabled farmers to pay for the separators from the proceeds of their sales of cream. The program worked so well that the company sold more than 50,000 separators in Nebraska from 1895 to 1905. On March 1, 1905, the company was incorporated as the Beatrice Creamery Company of Iowa, with capital of $3,000,000. By the start of the 20th century, they were shipping dairy products across the United States, and by 1910, they operated nine creameries and three ice cream plants across the Great Plains.

The company moved to Chicago in 1913, at the time the center of the American food processing industry. By the 1930s, it was a major dairy company, producing some 30 million US gallons (110,000 m3) of milk and 10 million US gallons (38,000 m3) of ice cream annually. In 1939, Beatrice Creamery Company purchased Blue Valley Creamery Company, the other Chicago-based dairy centralizer. This acquisition added at least 11 creameries from New York to South Dakota. Beatrice’s Meadow Gold brand was a household name in much of America by the beginning of World War II. In 1946, it changed its name to Beatrice Foods and doubled its sales between 1945 and 1955 as the post-war baby boom created vastly greater demand for milk products.

From the late 1950s until the early 1970s, the company expanded into Canada and purchased a number of other food firms, leveraging its distribution network to profit from a more diverse array of food and consumer products. It came to be the owner of brands like Avis Rent A Car, Playtex, Shedd’s, Tropicana, John Sexton & Co, Good & Plenty and many others. Annual sales in 1984 were roughly $12 billion. It was during both the Winter and Summer Olympics this year that the corporation flooded the TV airwaves with advertisements letting the public know that many brands they were familiar with were actually part of Beatrice Foods. These ads used the tagline (with a jingle) “We’re Beatrice. You’ve known us all along.” After the Olympics, advertisements for its products continued to end with the catchphrase “We’re Beatrice” and an instrumental version of the “You’ve known us all along” portion of the jingle, as the red and white “Beatrice” logo would simultaneously appear in the bottom right hand corner. However, it was soon determined that the campaign alienated consumers, calling attention to the fact that many of their favorite brands were in fact part of a far-reaching multinational corporation, and the campaign was pulled off the air by autumn.

In 1968, Sexton Foods was approached by Beatrice with an offer to purchase the John Sexton & Co. Beatrice was attracted to Sexton Quality Foods’ distribution network, quality, variety of private label products, specialized food offerings, sales force and profitability. Mack Sexton’s initial response was no, but Beatrice Foods was very interested. Eventually both parties reached an agreement. Beatrice Foods increased the purchase, pledged capital to expand Sexton Quality Foods distribution network, pledged capital to introduce a new Sexton frozen product line and pledged that the Sexton leadership would continue to lead and operate the company as a separate entity. On December 20, 1968, Beatrice acquired the business and assets of John Sexton & Co., exchanging approximately 375,000 shares of Beatrice’s preferred convertible preference stock valued at $37,500,000. John Sexton & Co. would become a separate independent division of Beatrice Foods, but still led by Mack Sexton (son of Franklin), William Egan (son of Helen) and William Sexton (son of Sherman). Mack became a vice president of Beatrice and a Beatrice board member. John Sexton & Co. put Beatrice Foods into the wholesale grocery business and Beatrice put John Sexton & Co. into the frozen foods business. Beatrice’s and the Sexton’s leadership were interested in maximizing the investment in John Sexton & Co. by growing the company.

Through the 1980s, Beatrice was a co-defendant alongside W. R. Grace and Company in a lawsuit alleging that the Riley Tannery, a division of Beatrice Foods, had dumped toxic waste which contaminated an underground aquifer that supplied drinking water to East Woburn, Massachusetts. The case became the subject of the popular book and film A Civil Action. A Federal judge ruled that Beatrice was not responsible for the contamination, although according to the book and film, the EPA later found both companies responsible.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexton_Foods

John Sexton was born June 29, 1859 in Dundas, Ontario to Michael and Ellen (O’Connor) Sexton from County Clare, Ireland. John Sexton worked in a general store in Niagara, Ontario 1874–1877. He immigrated to Chicago in 1877 at 18 and began working for various wholesale grocers in Chicago as a clerk and city salesman. During this time, he realized that there was an opportunity to specialize in selling quality teas, coffees and spices.

John Sexton married Annie Louise Bartleman (born Chicago 1866) on August 11, 1886. The Bartleman’s immigrated from Saxe-Coburg Gotha, Germany in the mid-1850s. The couple had five children, Thomas G. (born 1890), Franklin (born 2/16/1891), Sherman J. (born 9/12/1892), Helen (Egan) (b.?) and Ethel (Marten) (born 1896) the family home was 2263 North Dayton Street in Chicago. All three sons and both sons in laws worked for the company in various roles.

John Sexton & Co Established

In 1883, at the age of 25, John Sexton invested his entire life savings of $400 and formed a corporation with George A. Hitchcock named Hitchcock & Sexton Company which opened a small office at 5 Wabash in downtown Chicago. Within a year, Hitchcock & Sexton moved to 20 State Street (Street & Lake) which was owned by John DeKoven.

As business increased, Hitchcock & Sexton opened 3 more retail stores in the Chicago area including one in Joliet. This made Hitchcock & Sexton one of the first retail coffee and tea chain proprietors in the United States. In 1886, Hitchcock sold Sexton his interest in the business and renamed the company John Sexton & Co. To help run the business, John Sexton recruited his sisters Mary (Barton), Sarah (O’Leary), Beatrice (Mulligan), his brother James Sexton and cousins, Dan E. and Frank W. Upton to move to Chicago from Dundas, Ontario. Each sister ran one of his retail stores and lived above it with their families. In addition to family, John Sexton relied on recruiting high quality employees by offering attractive wages, sales commissions and fair dealing.

As word spread of Sexton’s quality products, fair dealings and unconditional guarantee, restaurant and hotel customers came to the Sexton retail stores to buy spices, tea and coffee. Sexton also added dried and canned goods to his stores. In addition, John Sexton began to call on the Chicago restaurants and hotels directly. In addition, he hired salesmen and delivery drivers to service on the wholesale accounts. He also purchased horses and wagons to make deliveries. By 1888, Sexton decided to close his four retail stores and focus solely on his Chicago wholesale customers. Sexton expanded the 20 State Street (201 N. State Street on the corner of State & Lake Streets) store by renting the rest of the building.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edith_Ewing_Bouvier_Beale

Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale (October 5, 1895 – February 5, 1977) was an American socialite and amateur singer, known for her eccentric lifestyle. She was a sister of John “Black Jack” Bouvier, the father of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. Her life and relationship with her daughter Edith Bouvier Beale were highlighted in the 1975 documentary Grey Gardens.

She was the daughter of John Vernou Bouvier, Jr. and Maude Sergeant Bouvier (the paternal grandparents of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis). Beale’s mother was the daughter of a wealthy paper manufacturer, and her father was a successful attorney who was appointed Major in the Judge Advocate Corps for the United States Army during World War I. He liked to be addressed as Major Bouvier and later invented a faux royal mythos of his Bouvier lineage in the privately printed Our Forebears, which gave his grandchildren the following quote: “The hallmark of aristocracy is responsibility.”

Beale enjoyed a privileged upbringing along with her brothers John Vernou Bouvier III, William Sergeant “Bud” Bouvier (1893–1929), who died at a young age from alcoholism, and her red-headed twin sisters Maude Bouvier Davis (1905-1999), mother of writer John H. Davis, and Michelle Bouvier Scott Putman (1905-1987). Beale enjoyed photography, theatrical arts, and as a youth considered becoming a surgeon from her interest in physiology.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Niihau

Niʻihau or Niihau (pron.: /ˈnh/; Hawaiian: [ˈniʔiˈhɔu]) is the seventh largest of the inhabited Hawaiian Islands in the U.S. state of Hawaiʻi, having an area of 69.5 square miles (180 km2) Niʻihau lies 17.5 miles (15.2 nmi; 28.2 km) southwest of Kauaʻi across the Kaulakahi Channel. Several intermittent playa lakes provide wetland habitats for the Hawaiian Coot, the Black-winged Stilt, and the Hawaiian Duck. The island is designated as critical habitat for Brighamia insignis, an endemic and endangered species of Hawaiian lobelioid. The United States Census Bureau defines Niʻihau and the neighboring island and State Seabird Sanctuary of Lehua as Census Tract 410 of Kauai County, Hawaii. Its 2000 census population was 160;  As of June 2009, the population was 130.

Elizabeth Sinclair purchased Niʻihau in 1864 from the Kingdom of Hawaii and private ownership passed on to her descendants, the Robinson family. During World War II, the island was the site of the Niʻihau Incident: A Japanese navy fighter pilot crashed on the island and terrorized its residents for a week after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The people of Niʻihau are known for their gemlike lei pūpū (shell lei) craftsmanship, and speak Hawaiʻian as a primary language. The island is generally off-limits to all but relatives of the island’s owners, U.S. Navy personnel, government officials and invited guests, giving it the nickname “The Forbidden Isle.” Beginning in 1987, a limited number of supervised activity tours and hunting safaris have opened to tourists. The island is currently managed by Bruce and Keith Robinson.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DeKoven_Street_(Chicago)

DeKoven Street is a street in Chicago, Illinois named for John DeKoven, one of the founders of the Northern Trust Company.

The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 started at 137 DeKoven Street, now numbered 558 West DeKoven, in a barn belonging to Patrick and Catherine O’Leary. Although the popular story is that a cow kicked over a lantern to start the fire, Michael Ahern, the Chicago Republican reporter who created the cow story, admitted in 1893 that he had made it up because he thought it would make colorful copy. At the time, the street was in a less prosperous neighborhood of Chicago. The site of the barn now houses the Chicago Fire Department training school near the intersection of Roosevelt Road and Canal Street, just southwest of the Loop.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_deKoven_Hill

John deKoven Hill (1920-1996) was an American architect, honorary chairman of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation and editorial director of House Beautiful magazine.

Hill decided to become an architect early on in his life, but not until he visited Taliesin did he become passionate about the design style of Frank Lloyd Wright. Hill skipped his high school graduation ceremony to enroll in the Taliesin Fellowship program on June 17, 1938. Because Hill was so young even among the apprentices, Wright often introduced him not by his name but by “This is Johnny. His father left him on my doorstep in a basket. With only a high school education, Hill started very green as an apprentice but went on to become Wright’s chief architect and right hand man. Hill had a keen sense of balance and an eye for design, and took responsibility for the designs and furnishings of all the interiors of the buildings Wright designed.

Hill and Wright designed a number of buildings together where Hill acted as chief architect. Notably, Hill was the chief architect and designer for the echt-Wrightian J. Ralph and Patricia Corbett House on 2501 Grandin Road in Cincinnati, Ohio. The house was designated the House Beautiful Magazine’s 1960 Pace Setter and is considered the culmination of Wright and Hill’s collaborative designs. Many features first seen in Fallingwater and Taliesin were incorporated into the house. According to the Cincinnati MLS, this property was listed for sale on December 16, 2009 for $1,995,000. It went pending in 3 days and posted as closed in MLS on February 5, 2010 for $1,800,000. It was the first time the home had been offered for sale since it was built. At the time of sale, the home was in need of extensive repairs and improvements. The basic structure is built of concrete and steel.

From 1953 to 1963 Hill served as the architecture editor for House Beautiful magazine and in 1964 became its editorial director. In this function, Hill helped promote the cause of Modern architecture and particularly Wright’s “Organic” approach. He went on to become treasurer of the Taliesin Fellowship and honorary chairman of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.

Lloyd:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rachel_Lambert_Mellon

Known as Bunny, she is the eldest child of Gerard Barnes Lambert, Sr., a president of Gillette Safety Razor Co. and a founder of Warner-Lambert (Warner-Lambert is now part of Pfizer, following a 2000 merger).One of her grandfathers, chemist Jordan Lambert, invented Listerine, although it was her father who commercialized it.Her mother was the former Rachel Lowe. She had two siblings: Gerard Barnes Lambert, Jr. (1912–1947; married Elsa Conover, former wife of Angus D. Mackintosh); and Lily Cary Lambert (1914–2006; married William Wilson Fleming and John Gilman McCarthy).

Mellon’s parents divorced in 1933, and in 1934, her mother re-married her former brother-in-law, Dr. Malvern Bryan Clopton, the widower of Gerard Lambert, Sr.’s sister, Lily Lambert Walker. In 1936, Gerard Lambert, Sr. also was re-married, to Grace Cleveland Lansing Mull, the former wife of John B. Mull and a daughter of Henry Livingston Lansing.

Forbes Magazine has been unable to put any sort of definitive number on Mellon’s net worth since much of her fortune is tied up in trusts, but it is apparent that she is both extraordinarily wealthy and very private. In 2011, it was revealed that she had lost US$5.75M to investment adviser and convicted Ponzi scheme operator Ken Starr. Her attorney, Alex Forger, said: “She’s well off, but assets are not liquid.” She maintains homes in Antigua, Nantucket, and Oyster Harbors on Cape Cod, but two apartments in Paris and a townhouse in New York City were recently sold. Her main residence, Oak Spring Farms, a 4,000-acre (1,600 ha) estate in Virginia, has its own 1-mile (1,600 m) long airstrip for her Falcon 2000. She amassed an extraordinary collection of works by artist Mark Rothko, having purchased many of his 1950s works directly from his New York studio. One of the works, Yellow Expanse, is considered one of the greatest works that remains in private hands.

Mellon has long been known for her maximum discretion and minimum exposure. In a rare 1969 New York Times article, she proclaimed that “nothing should be noticed”.

Rachel Lowe Lambert married Stacy Barcroft Lloyd, Jr. in Philadelphia in 1932. Lloyd served in the Office of Strategic Services during World War II. They divorced in 1948. They had two children:

  • Stacy Barcroft Lloyd, III
  • Eliza Winn Lloyd (died May 7, 2008; married and divorced Viscount Moore) In May 2000, Eliza was hit by a truck while crossing a Manhattan street and suffered a severe brain injury. She became quadriplegic and unable to speak. She spent the remaining eight years of her life under round-the-clock care at Oak Spring Farms.

Mellon was a longtime friend of John and Jacqueline Kennedy, advising Mrs. Kennedy first on fine arts and antiques during the Kennedy White House restoration and then contributing to the design of the grounds of the President’s house. In 1961, on Mrs. Kennedy’s request, Mellon redesigned the White House Rose Garden creating a more open space for public ceremony and introducing American species of plants including Magnolia × soulangeana. She next began to work on the White House’s East Garden, but was unable to complete it before the assassination of President Kennedy. First Lady Lady Bird Johnson asked Mellon to complete work on the East Garden and in 1965 it was dedicated as the Jacqueline Kennedy Garden.

Her daughter Eliza was hit by a car and became a quadriplegic not long after the death of her husband, Paul, in 1999. Eliza died in 2008. Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of friend Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, sat beside her during her daughter’s funeral.

Mellon expressed interest in the John Edwards campaign as early as 2004, because he reminded her of President Kennedy, but when she called his campaign office with an offer to help, no one recognized her name and she wasn’t called back. That changed when Edwards sought the 2008 Democratic Presidential nomination. In August 2008, Edwards’s campaign finance chairman Fred Baron told NBC News that he had been providing financial assistance to both Rielle Hunter and Andrew Young without Edwards’s knowledge. He further stated that no campaign funds were used. Mellon allegedly gave more than $725,000 to John Edwards over an eight-month period (through decorator Bryan Huffman) beginning in May 2007. The check falsely referred to as “chairs”, “antique Charleston table” and “bookcase.” During this period Mellon wrote a note to Young saying: “I was sitting alone in a grim mood — furious that the press attacked Senator Edwards on the price of a haircut. But it inspired me — from now on, all haircuts, etc. that are necessary and important for his campaign — please send the bills to me… It is a way to help our friend without government restrictions.” The funds were believed to be used to secretly support Hunter, with whom Edwards had an extra-marital affair and child. The FBI interviewed Mellon at her estate in Upperville, Virginia, on two occasions in 2010. Then in early December of that same year, her son, Stacy Lloyd, III, grandsons, Stacy Lloyd, IV and Thomas Lloyd, along with grandson Thomas Lloyd’s wife, Ricki Lloyd, appeared before a grand jury in Raleigh, North Carolina. On June 3, 2011, Edwards was indicted on using campaign funds to help cover-up an affair and pregnancy during the 2008 presidential campaign. Mellon was widely believed to be ‘Person C’ described in the indictment. Just one week prior to his indictment in late May 2011, Edwards visited Mellon at her Upperville estate. Following his indictment, the judge forbade Edwards to speak with any potential witnesses. People close to Mellon said that the money was a personal gift and that she had no idea how Mr. Edwards used it.

Lambert and Lloyd became close friends of banking heir and art collector Paul Mellon and his first wife, Mary Conover, who died of an asthma attack in 1946. After she divorced Lloyd, Paul and Bunny were married on May 1, 1948. By this marriage, she had two stepchildren, Timothy Mellon and Catherine Conover Mellon (later Mrs. John Warner and now known as Catherine Conover). Together the couple collected and donated more than 1,000 works of art, mostly eighteenth- and nineteenth-century European paintings, to the National Gallery of Art. The couple also bred and raced thoroughbred horses, including a winner of the Kentucky Derby.

    The Standard Oil Trust was controlled by a small group of families. Rockefeller stated in 1910: “I think it is true that the Pratt family, the Payne-Whitney family (which were one, as all the stock came from Colonel Payne), the Harkness-Flagler family (which came into the Company together) and the Rockefeller family controlled a majority of the stock during all the history of the Company up to the present time”.[12]

    These families reinvested most of the dividends in other industries, especially railroads. They also invested heavily in the gas and the electric lighting business (including the giant Consolidated Gas Company of New York City). They made large purchases of stock in US Steel, Amalgamated Copper, and even Corn Products Refining Company.[13]

    [edit] Standard Oil In ChinaStandard Oil’s production increased so rapidly it soon exceeded US demand and the company began viewing export markets. In the 1890s, Standard Oil began marketing kerosene to China’s large population of close to 400 million as lamp fuel.[14] For its Chinese trademark and brand Standard Oil adopted the name “Mei Foo”, translating roughly as beautiful and trustworthy or beautiful confidence.[15][16] Mei Foo also became the name of the tin lamp that Standard Oil produced and gave away or sold cheaply to Chinese peasants, encouraging them to switch from vegetable oil to kerosene. Response was positive, sales boomed and China became Standard Oil’s largest market in Asia. Prior to Pearl Harbor, Stanvac was the largest single US investment in SE Asia.[17]

    Socony’s North China Department operated a subsidiary called Socony River and Coastal Fleet, North Coast Division, which became the North China Division of Stanvac after that company was formed in 1933.[18] To distribute its products, Standard Oil constructed storage tanks, canneries (bulk oil from large ocean tankers was re-packaged into 5-gallon tins), warehouses and offices in key Chinese cities. For inland distribution the Company had motor tank trucks and railway tank cars, and for river navigation it had a fleet of low draft steamers and other vessels.[19] Stanvac’s North China Division, based in Shanghai, owned hundreds of river going vessels, including motor barges, steamers, launches, tugboats and tankers.[20] Up to 13 tankers operated on the Yangtze River, the largest of which were Mei Ping (1,118 gt), Mei Hsia (1,048 gt),and Mei An (934 gt).[21] All three were destroyed in the 1937 USS Panay incident.[22] Mei An was launched in 1901 and was the first vessel in the fleet. Other vessels included Mei Chuen, Mei Foo, Mei Hung, Mei Kiang, Mei Lu, Mei Tan, Mei Su, Mei Xia, Mei Ying, and Mei Yun. Mei Hsia, a tanker, was specially designed for river duty and was built by New Engineering and Shipbuilding Works of Shanghai, who also built the 500-ton launch Mei Foo in 1912. Mei Hsia (“Beautiful Gorges”) was launched in 1926 and carried 350 tons of bulk oil in three holds, plus a forward cargo hold and space between decks for carrying general cargo or packed oil. She had a length of 206 feet (63 m), a beam of 32 feet (9.8 m), depth of 10 feet 6 inches (3.20 m) and had a bulletproof wheelhouse. Mei Ping (“Beautiful Tranquility”) launched in 1927, was designed offshore but assembled and finished in Shanghai. It’s oil fuel burners came from the U.S. and water tube boilers came from England.

    Rufus King Delafield, Royal

    Rufus King Delafield was the youngest son of John Delafield and Ann [Hallett]. He was an officer of the Phenix Bank 1823-1835, and actuary and secretary of the Farmer’s Loan and Trust Company 1835-1852. He was also president of the Delafield & Baxter hydraulic cement company. He married Eliza Bard, daughter of William Bard [who was the predecessor of Henry Parish the younger as President of the New York Life Insurance and Trust Company]. (Historic Homes and Institutions and Genealogical and Family History of New York, Vol. 1, 1907. By William Smith Pelletreau, p. 279.)

    Historic Homes and Institutions, p. 279 / Google Books
    Rufus K. Delafield’s sister, Susan Maria, married Henry Parish, an uncle of Henry Parish. Henry Parish died in 1856, several years after a stroke which paralyzed him. His will left $200,000 to her and the residue of his million-dollar estate to the children of his brothers and sisters, but three codicils left everything to his wife. The other heirs contested it on grounds of undue influence. When Mrs. Parish died in 1861, the will was still being contested, and she directed that both her estate and that of her husband be left to her brothers, Joseph, Henry, Edward, Richard and Rufus K. Delafield. (Law Reports. New York Times, Aug. 7, 1861.)

    The Delafield family married into the royal desendants of Edward III, King of England, in 1563, and their ancestor, John Delafield, was made a Count of the Holy Roman Empire in 1697, “with remainder of the title to his descendants, male and female, of his name.” (Americans of Royal Descent. By Charles Henry Browning, 1891, p.65.)

    Americans of Royal Descent, p. 65 / Google Books
    Their father, John Delafield, who arrived in America in 1783, “brought to America the first copy of the treaty of peace which formally closed the Revolution. His sister had married William Arnold, the grandfather of the celebrated Matthew Arnold, and a close friend at the time of William Pitt, the Prime Minister.” The ship carrying the official copy arrived several days later. “A member of the de Peyster family met Delafield on his arrival, and sent the copy of the treaty by special messenger to Philadelphia, where the Continental Congress was in session.” Rufus K. Delafield’s son, Richard Delafield, was president of the National Park Bank, and an incorporator and president of the Delafield family association. (Famous Delafield Family Is Now Incorporated. New York Times, May 12, 1912.) Among other things, John Delafield sold Bohea tea, imported in the ships Asia and Canton. (Display Ad. New York Daily Advertiser, Oct. 30, 1789.) The ship Mary, Daniel S. Moore, master, just arrived from Canton, unloaded teas, nankeens, silks and sugars on Delafields wharf, apply to Lawrence & Van Zandt, Brothers Coster and Co., or John McVickar. (Display Ad. New York Daily Advertiser, Sep. 12, 1800.)

    John Delafield Jr. (1786-1853) graduated from Columbia College in 1802. (The Annual Commencement of Columbia. Connecticut Journal, Aug. 12, 1802.) Shortly before the War of 1812, he was sent “under a commission from the United States Government, to command a fleet of merchant vessels.” He was taken prisoner after being wrecked on the British coast. “After peace was established, he was induced to remain in England, and, for eight or nine years, was well known in the London Exchange as the American Banker. By the influence which he thus acquired among capitalists, he was enabled to spread foreign money over the country, especially the Southern and Western States.” In 1839, the State of Illinois failed to pay a loan he procured for it. He retired to a farm in Geneva, N.Y. in 1842, and in 1851 was elected president of the Agricultural College. (Recent Deaths. New York Times, Oct. 25, 1853.) In 1820, he was appointed cashier of the Phenix Bank. (Mercantile Advertiser, Aug. 24, 1820.) In 1836, he was accused of having been “the great confederate of the Commercial Bank of Albany “in forming combinations in the Long Island Rail Road and other stocks.” He refused to show the stock ledger on the request of several directors of the Phenix Bank. (Commercial Bank Investigation. New York Herald, May 13, 1836.) He resigned as President and a director in 1838. (Phenix Bank. New York Spectator, Apr. 26, 1838.)

(New York Times, Jan. 6, 1880 p. 7.)

    John Jacob Astor

    John Jacob Astor (1822-1890) was the son of William Backhouse Astor, and grandson of the original John Jacob Astor. His father left two-thirds of a life interest in the Astor fortune to him, valued between $100 and $150 million.. His brother, William B. Astor Jr., got the other third. It was largely in real estate, which provided an income of over $5 million per year, and reverted to their children after their deaths. The Trinity Church Corporation was the only larger holding of real estate in the New York City. (John Jacob Astor Dead. New York Times, Feb. 23, 1890.) He left $100,000 each to St. Luke’s Hospital and the New-York Cancer Hospital, and a $400,000 investment fund for the Astor Library. (Millions Handed Down. New York Times, Feb. 27, 1890.) Mrs. Astor was Charlotte Augusta Gibbes, and she inherited a large personal fortune from her parents, Thomas S. Gibbes, a southerner, and the former Miss Van den Heuval. The Astors were married in 1846, and William Waldorf Astor was their only child. Mrs. Astor was a manager of the Woman’s Hospital from 1872 until her death. “The Cancer Hospital, whose foundation has just been celebrated, owes its origin to Mrs. Astor’s sister, Mrs. Cullom, and its construction to the generosity of Mrs. Astor.” Her sister, Miss Zela Gibbes, also lived with the Astors. Dr. Fordyce Barker said that she died of enteritis, or chronic inflammation of the bowels, not of cancer. (The Death of Mrs. Astor. New York Times, Dec. 13, 1887.) The Cancer Hospital opened in 1887, and John Jacob Astor had given over $300,000 to it by 1888, including the addition of a pavilion for men. Mrs. Cullom also left $50,000 to the Cancer Hospital. (Another Noble Gift. New York Times, Dec. 13, 1888.) John Jacob Astor IV (1864-1912) was the son of William B. Astor Jr.

    Isaac Bell
    Isaac Bell was born in New York City in 1814. He was the twelfth Isaac Bell in his family since the first one left Edinburgh, Scotland, and landed with the New Haven colony in 1640. He began in the French banking house of the Lentilhon Company, and later went to Charleston, S.C. and Mobile, Ala. in the cotton trade. He met Dr. Valentine Mott and his fourteen year old daughter [Adelaide] on a business trip to Europe in 1842, and he married her two years later. They lived in Mobile, where he was vice president and chairman of the Southern Bank of Alabama, and was a member of the Alabama legislature and on the staff of the Governor. In 1856, he returned to New York, and was elected a member of the Board of Supervisors. He was the first Commissioner of Charities and Correction in 1859. He financed troop transport ships in the civil war, and later organized the New York and Havre Packet Company and the Old Dominion Steamship Company. His son, Isaac Bell Jr., was U.S. Minister to Holland. He married the sister of James Gordon Bennett [Jr.]. His daughter [Olivia] was Mrs. James L. Barclay. (Isaac Bell Passes Away. New York Times, Oct. 1, 1897.) Isaac Bell was a vice president of the Tweed Ring’s Tenth National Bank (The City Banks. New York Herald, Jan. 12, 1870), and a Sachem of the Tammany Society, whose Grand Sachem was William M. Tweed. (Annual Meeting of the Tammany Society. New York Times, May 13, 1871.) Mrs. Bell was one of the founders of Memorial Hospital. (Gotham Gossip. New Orleans Daily Picayune, Sep. 8, 1890.)

    James L. Barclay was a Royal descendant of Edward I, King of England. (Americans of Royal Descent. By Charles Henry Browning, 1891, p. 107.) [However, the relation between Rev. Thomas Barclay of Albany and John Barclay of East Jersey is disputed.] James Lent Barclay’s granddaughter, Allardyce Barclay, married Philippe Hottinguer, a son of Henri Hottinguer, head of the Hottinguer banking firm of Paris. (Allardyce Barclay Engaged to Marry. New York Times, Jul. 3, 1931.) Suzanne Hottinguer and Constance de Pourtales were to be flower girls. (Other Wedding Plans. New York Times, Jul. 18, 1931.)

    His father, Isaac Bell, was from Stamford, Connecticut. He made several voyages to China. “He had seen Washington, and was on familiar terms with most of the leading federalists. Among these was Hamilton, with whom he walked daily in the morning on the Battery.” “To an inquiry propounded by a friend to Mr. Bell a short time before his death, relative to his advanced years, he ascribed his longevoty to regularity and plainness in living, and total abstinence from tobacco, segars and all kinds of spiritous and malt liquors.” (Obituary. Death of Isaac Bell, Senior. New York Herald, Sep. 8, 1860.)

    Roswell G. Rolston
    Roswell Graves Rolston was an officer of the Farmers Loan and Trust Company for thirty-three years, until suffering a stroke in 1897. He resigned as president, but continued as chairman and a director until shortly before his death. He had been involved in “several minor ventures” until becoming involved in organizing the Fourth National Bank. He left it to become a vice president of Farmers. He was also a director of the Western Union Telegraph Company, the Queens Insurance Company of America, the New Jersey Steamboat Company, the National City Bank, and the Commonwealth Insurance Company of New York; a member of the Board of Managers of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad, and a trustee of the Consolidated Gas Company. (Rosewell G. Rolston Dead. New York Times, Aug. 26, 1896.) He was a director of the Northern Pacific Railroad during the 1883 visit of Eduard Lasker among a group of German investors. (The Northern Pacific Road. New York Times, Sep. 22, 1882; Accepting His Resignation. New York Times, Jan. 5, 1884.)

    His son, Louis B. Rolston, was a partner of the law firm of Geller, Rolston & Horan, counsel to the Farmers Loan and Trust. (Louis Bertrand Rolston. New York Times, Jan. 29, 1933.) He was Secretary and Treasurer of the Bellevue Hospital Medical Board when it was merged with the New York University Medical College. D.O. Mills was President and Samuel Sloan, Vice President. (Two Colleges Are United. New York Times, Apr. 9, 1897.)

    Samuel Sloan (1817-1907)
    He was born in Lisburn, Ireland, the hometown of the Brown Brothers, before his parents immigrated to New York. He left school at age 15 when his father died, and worked at McBride & Co., Irish linen importers, and was a partner by 1845. In 1855, “At the instance of Gov. [Edwin Dare] Morgan,” he became a director and then the President of the Hudson River Railroad, later the New York Central. He left after Commodore Vanderbilt took control, and two years later was elected President of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western. He was its president until 1899, and then chairman until his death. He was president of a half dozen other railroads at various times, and was a director or officer of 33 corporations at his death, including vice president and director of the National City Bank, a director of the Farmers Loan and Trust Company, and the United States Trust Company. (Samuel Sloan Dies In Nintieth Year. New York Times, Sep. 23, 1907.) He also contributed $5,000 to the building fund for Columbia University, along with Abram S. Hewitt, Seth Low, Samuel D. Babcock, Jacob H. Schiff, and R. Fulton Cutting (who gave $10,000). (Columbia’s New Site. New York Times, May 11, 1892.) Bellevue Hospital Medical College was consolidated with New York University Medical College in 1897. The officers of the Bellevue Hospital College Board were D.O. Mills, President; Samuel Sloan, Vice President; and Louis B. Rolston, Secretary and Treasurer. (Two Colleges Are United. New York Times, Apr. 9, 1897.) “He was a warm friend of James Boorman, the projector” of the Hudson River road. “Its Directors were mostly men of strength in the business world, including Gov. Morgan, John D. Wolfe, Drake Mills, C.H. Russell, James Bauman, C.W. Chapin, Moses H. Grinnell, William Kelly, Charles F. Pond, and Edward Jones.” (Samuel Sloan. By Earl D. Berry. New York Times, Mar. 6, 1898.) Peter Lorillard was a director in 1858, when Samuel Sloan was unanimously re-elected president. (Commercial Affairs. New York Times, Jun. 15, 1858.)

    George F. Talman
    He was born in New York City in 1795 and graduated from Columbia [1814]. He was a law partner of his brother-in-law, Henry G. Wisner, until 1825. He was a law partner of Ogden Hoffman, then became the New York agent of the American Trust Company of Baltimore until it wound up its affairs, when he became a vice president of the Farmers’ Loan and Trust. He was not married. (Obituary. New York Times, Jun. 12, 1883.) He was chairman of the National Republican Young Men Club (Meeting of the National Republican Young Men. New-York Spectator, Oct. 11, 1831), and the next year a candidate for Congress (Great Anti-Jackson Meeting! New York Spectator, Nov. 1, 1832). He was one of the assignees of The American Life and Trust Company of Baltimore (Money Market. New York Herald, Aug. 19, 1842.); and a director of the Michigan Central Railroad (Railroad Election. Milwaukee Sentinel, Jun. 23, 1874; Financial Record Boston Stock Market. Boston Daily Advertiser, Jun. 29, 1875; Railroad Election. Chicago Inter Ocean, May 11, 1876), and the Erie Railway (Erie Railroad Directors. New York Times, Oct. 11, 1854; Election of Erie Railroad Directors.

    His brother, James T. Talman, was Cashier of the Morris Canal Bank. The District Attorney entered a nolli prosique, stating that ‘however important Mr. T. might have been in signing his name to the certificates of the Morris Canal stock, yet he was satisfied that he had no knowledge that a fraud was intended, nor did he afterwards participate in it in any shape.’ (Oyez & Terminer. New York Spectator, Dec. 22, 1826). He was a director of the Union National Bank and the Atlantic Mutual Insurance Company. He was born in New London, Conn. about 1780 (Obituary.

In World War I, he was the assistant to Assistant Secretary of State Frank Polk [Scroll & Key 1894], who “laid the groundwork for the central intelligence organization U-1.” (The CIA and American Democracy. By Rhodri Jeffreys-Jones. Yale University Press, 2003.)

    His son, Reginald L. Auchincloss, was a member of Scroll & Key 1913. (Yale ‘Taps’ in Rain Amid Great Tension. New York Times, May 17, 1912.) He married Ruth Hunter Cutting, the daughter of Robert Fulton Cutting. Ushers at his wedding were T. Lawrason Riggs, F. Bayard Rives, S. Sloan Colt [his cousin, at whose wedding Auchincloss was an usher], Charles H. Marshall, H. Humphrey Parsons, C. Suydam Cutting, Edwin D. Morgan Jr., and Joseph Walker 3d. His brother, Samuel Sloan Auchincloss, was best man. (Washington Post, Apr. 3, 1916; R. La G. Auchincloss Weds Ruth Cutting. New York Times, May 3, 1916.) “This work has been made possible through the generosity of the Royal Baking Powder Company, Mr. and Mrs. Reginald Auchincloss, and the Cancer Rescarch Fund of the Graduate School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania. The writers are indebted, also, to Mr. R. G. Crosen for his aid in the development of the method.” (The Tar in Cigarette Smoke and Its Possible Effects. William D. McNally, M.D. of Rush Medical College. Am J Cancer 1932 Nov;16(6):1502-1514.) R. Fulton Cutting, a grandson of director Robert L. Cutting, was a major benefactor of the American Society for the Control of Cancer. In 1948, McNally testified on behalf of the Federal Trade Commission against the P. Lorillard Tobacco Company, along with Albert D. Lasker’s crony Anton J. Carlson.

    Edgar S. Auchincloss’s brother, John Winthrop Auchincloss, Ph.B. 1873, was an agent of J&P Coats, Ltd., from 1873 to 1890; a partner of Auchincloss Brothers 1877-1923; a director of several corporations including the Illinois Central Railway and the All America Cable Company, and a trustee of the Mutual Life Insurance Company from 1885-1907 and a director of it from 1903 to 1914, as well as a member of its “investigating committee” in 1905. His daughter, Elizabeth, married Percy H. Jennings, S&B 1904. (J.W. Auchincloss, 84, Former Executive. New York Times, Jan. 25, 1938; Bulletin of Yale University. Obituary Record of Graduates of Yale University Deceased during the Year 1937-1938, pp. 153-154.) His wife was a daughter of Charles Handy Russell. (Mrs. J.W. Auchincloss. New York Times, Mar. 21, 1933.) Lansing Reed was Percy Hall Jennings’ best man. (Weddings of a Day. New York Times, Jan. 13, 1907.) His son, Joseph Howland Auchincloss, Scroll & Key 1908, received his law degree from Harvard in 1911, then joined Stetson, Jennings and Russell, where his uncle, Charles Howland Russell, was a partner. He continued with the firm when it became Davis, Polk & Wardwell in 1921. (J. Howland Auchincloss Dies; Specialist in Corporate Law, 82. New York Times, Sep. 1, 1968.) Dr. J. Howland Auchincloss Jr. graduated from Groton School, Yale, and the College of Physicians and Surgeons. He married Sarah Sedgwick Knapp. His brother, Louis S. Auchincloss, was best man.

No abstract available), which was cited in the 1964 Surgeon General Report. At a luncheon meeting sponsored by the American Lung Association and the World Health Organization, he claimed that “Lung-related diseases can be traced back to man-made air pollution, which is largely tobacco smoke.” (Lung Association Talks Detail Anti-Smoking Fight.

    Abdul Aziz bin Fahd (عبد العزيز بن فهد بن عبد العزيز آل سعود) (born 1973) is the reportedly favorite son of the late King Fahd, but was known mostly for his extravagance and playboy image.

    Abdul Aziz was born in 1973. His mother wanted to be called Umm ‘Abd al-‘Aziz (mother of ‘Abd al-‘Aziz).[2] In fact, his mother is al Jawhara bint Ibrahim al Ibrahim, belonging to the wealthy al Ibrahim family. Her sister, Maha al Ibrahim, is married to former deputy minister of Defence and Aviation, Prince Abdul Rahman. His another sister, Mohdi al Ibrahim, is married to minister of Higher Education,[3] Dr. Khaled Al Anqari.[4]

    Al Jawhara al Ibrahim divorced from her first husband to wed King Fahd. Al Jawhara’s place at his side provided her brothers with the opportunity to become influential businessmen, leading to jealousy and gossip in royal circles.[5]

    After the death of King Fahd, she has remained as an influential and respected member of the family, and had close relations with senior royals, especially Fahd’s full brothers. The fact that she travelled with King Abdallah to Kuwait in January 2007 to pay the family’s respects upon the death of the Amir Jabir al Ahmad al Sabah is considered to be a sign of her continuing influence

    wiki;
    Khalid bin Mahfouz (December 26, 1949 – August 16, 2009) was a wealthy Saudi Arabian businessman residing in Ireland. He was accused of supporting al-Qaeda.[1]

    As of 2002, he was believed to be confined in a hospital in Taif by Saudi authorities.[2] He died on August 16, 2009 of a heart attack.
    Khalid bin Mahfouz was the second eldest son of Salim Ahmed bin Mahfouz a Saudi who rose from being an illiterate moneychanger to the founder of the first bank in his country, the National Commercial Bank of Saudi Arabia (NCB). Salim Ahmed then became the personal banker of the Saudi royal family. He handed management of NCB, the largest bank in the country, to Khalid sometime in the 1980s.

    In the 1970s Khalid bin Mahfouz bought and lived in a $3.5 million chateaux-style house, later named “Versailles,” in the River Oaks area of Houston. He also bought a four thousand acre (16 km²) ranch along the Trinity River in Liberty County, Texas, near the ranch of James Bath.

    In 1990 Khalid bin Mahfouz acquired Irish citizenship through inward-investment procedures.[6]

    Bin Mahfouz was married with three children. His personal net worth was $3.2 billion in 2006, making him one of the richest people in the world; his family fortune is worth over $4 billion.[7]

    [edit] Controversies[edit] $225 million BCCI scandal fineBin Mahfouz was a non-executive director of Bank of Credit and Commerce International, a financial conglomerate later convicted of money laundering, bribery, support of terrorism, arms trafficking, and many other crimes.[8] Mahfouz personally owned a 20% stake in BCCI. He was indicted by a New York state grand jury for fraud but denied any culpability. The fraud charges were settled for $225 million in lieu of fines.[4] Mr. bin Mahfouz has claimed that he simply settled as a business decision rather than using resources to fight further.

    [edit] Donations to Osama bin Laden in 1988Craig Unger’s book House of Bush, House of Saud claims that bin Mahfouz donated over $270,000 to Osama bin Laden’s Islamist organization at the request of Osama’s brother Salem bin Laden. Bin Mahfouz’s lawyer stated: “This donation was to assist the US-sponsored resistance to the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan and was never intended nor, to the best of Sheikh Khalid’s knowledge, ever used to fund any ‘extension’ of that resistance movement in other countries.”[9]

    [edit] Alleged NCB funding of al-QaedaKhalid bin Mahfouz has denied that NCB, his bank, was involved in funding an al-Qaeda group. According to reports, high-placed Saudi businessmen transferred millions of dollars through NCB to charities operating as fronts for al-Qaeda. Mahfouz states that he could not have been aware of every wire transfer moving through the bank, and that he would not have allowed such transactions had he known they were taking place. There is no evidence that Mahfouz was personally involved in any of these transactions.

    Additionally, Forbes reports:

    [I]n 1999 the [Saudi] government stepped in, buying a controlling 50% stake of NCB from Khalid for at least $1 billion, partly used to wipe Khalid’s debt from the books. Khalid and his family retained 34% ownership, but he again surrendered his management positions. . . The extent of Khalid’s mismanagement at NCB remains shrouded. NCB has not issued audited numbers since 1998, but it did acknowledge last year that provisions for bad loans in 1999 and 2000 reached $934 million, covering 86% of its doubtful debt.

      ……..Al-Mansour tellls that he met Barry at Occidental. At that time Mansour, who was also known as Don Warden, a founder of the Black Panthers, and recent graduate of Boalt Hall, called the eminent Percy Sutton, Army Air Force pilot, attorney to Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan, The Muslim Brotherhood, and Charles Rangel, among many others, and asked for help getting Barry into Harvard. That was some time before 1988.

      Mansour’s diatribes, idiosyncratic Black Nationalism mixed with Islam, can still be found on YouTube. Mansour, when he met Barry, had become both part of Alwaleed bin-Talal’s legal staff, and was working as a Whahhabi recruiter for bin-Talal, working in US Prisons. Mansour told Percy Sutton, in a popular YouTube interview from 2007, that Obama had no need for financial support because bin-Talal (who is News Corp’s largest private stockholder, News Corp owing FOX News and the WSJ, with major holdings of Citibank, Cisco, GE, Oracle, … was Obama’s mentor.

      The clear implication is that the Saudi family has been supporting Barry at least since 1980.

      A fascinating new detail was discovered by Frank Miele, referenced by Jack Cashill, about an interview Vernon Jarrett, Valarie’s father-in-law, conducted with Mansour in 1979. Jarrett, described a plan being promoted by Mansour, representing bin-Talal, were proposing to finance education for minorities in the US. Jarrett is one of the Communist elites out of Chicago, a longtime friend of Marshall Davis. The connections are not speculation. You can find the Jarrett article by reading the Cashill article at WND. You can hear the eloquent Warden/Mansour on Youtube, though I could no longer find the discussion where he mentioned his introduction to Obama at Occidental (which doesn’t mean it isn’t still there).

      Mansour, from the Jarrett interview, was representing OPEC, as counsel for bin-Talal, when he discussed the program targeting minority education. In 1979 few were aware of the Madrass program for creating Jihadis all over the world; to most it sounded like a harmless and beneficial effort to to improve the economic state and futures of the less privileged, and not a long range plan to insinuate Sharia and Islamic domination through targetted education.

      Read Horowitz’ “Discover The Networks” description of Mansour. Listen to his diatribes. He is a colleague of the Rev Wright fromm Wright’s Black Nationalist days. Mansour is an erudite and disciplined representative of Wahabbi Islam, with a more coherant version of Islamic history, coupled with virulent hatred of caucasions, than his, and Percy Sutton’s friend, Louis Farrakhan. He has worked for the Saudi Royal family for about thirty five hears, and he was Barry’s mentor after Marshall Davis, directing Saudi funds to support Barry according to Percy Sutton. Sutton was old, in his 80s, but certainly not senile when interviewed by NY public service television, and when recounting the discussion he had with Mansour in the mid-1980s. He was proud to have been able to help.

      Bin-Talal donated about twenty million dollars to Harvard a little before Barry was admitted. A few years later bin-Talal founded the Alwaleed bin-Talal Center for Islamic Studies at Harvard Divinity School, following up with similar centers at Georgetown, Cambridge, and American Universtiy. His center is now the best funded division of Harvard Divinity School. Is there any doubt about who owns Elena Kagan, Larry Tribe, whom Kagan shielded from undoubted plagiarism charges, who was Obama’s adviser at Harvard Law, and the author, with Ted Olson, of the letter used to for talking points by Obama and McCaskill, Obamas campaign co-chair, when they needed to obscure Obama’s ineligibility by protecting McCain’s ineligibility from being questioned again in Senate Res 511, April 2008. SR 511 became necessary after McCAskill Obama’s S. 2678, the “Children of Military families Natural Born Citizen Act” failed to pass in February 2008.

      Mansour was there at the beginning of a remarkably well-planned, and successful plan to put a Saudi-owned agent in a high position. That Obama may have been the beneficiary of the program advertised by the Communist Jarrett is new, but seems likely. Barry’s funding began about a year after the Jarrett article, and Jarrett was close friends with Marshall Davis, and with David Axelrod’s mentor, David Canter, who worked for the Soviets for years translating Lenin into English. It is no surprise that Jarrett’s daughter-in-law is often identified as the real power behind Obama’s actions…..

      “Well, I think you are going to be surprised when you get a black president very soon.”

      The consensus we expressed was that we didn’t think there was anything innately barring that. The right person at the right time and sure, America would try to vote for the right person, be he or she black or not.

      It was then that the husband unsuccessfully tried to change the subject; but she was on a roll and would have nothing of it. One of us asked, “It sounds like you know something we don’t know.”

      “Yes, it is true. This is not some idle talk. He is already born and he is educated and being groomed to be president right now. You will be impressed to know that he has gone to the best schools of Presidents. He is what you call “Ivy League”. You don’t believe me, but he is real and I even know his name. His name is Barack. His mother is white and American and his father is black from Africa. That’s right, a chocolate baby! And he’s going to be your President.”

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruth_Roche,_Baroness_Fermoy
    Ruth Roche, Baroness Fermoy, DCVO, OBE, (2 October 1908 – 6 July 1993) was a friend and confidante of Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, and the maternal grandmother of Lady Diana Spencer, later Princess of Wales.

    Lady Fermoy was born Ruth Sylvia Gill at her father’s house, Dalhebity, Bieldside, Aberdeenshire, the daughter of Colonel William Smith Gill and his wife Ruth (the daughter of David Littlejohn).[1] She showed early promise as a pianist and studied under Alfred Cortot at the Paris Conservatoire in the 1920s.[2] Her musical career was cut short when she met, and later married in 1931, the wealthy and much older Edmund Roche, 4th Baron Fermoy. They had three children which included her younger daughter, Frances. Lady Fermoy did play the piano in public occasionally after her marriage, most notably with Josef Krips at the Royal Albert Hall in 1950, and with Sir John Barbirolli and the Hallé Orchestra at King’s Lynn in 1966.[3] She founded the King’s Lynn Festival in 1951 and remained closely involved with the Festival for 25 years, persuading Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother to become its patron.[4]

    In 1956, the Queen Mother appointed Lady Fermoy an Extra Woman of the Bedchamber. The Queen Mother, being a widow herself, showed a preference for appointing widows to her household, and four years later Ruth, Lady Fermoy, was promoted to Woman of the Bedchamber, a post she held for the next 33 years.[5] The Queen Mother and Lady Fermoy became confidantes, and it was assumed by many that the two women engineered the match between Charles, Prince of Wales, and Lady Diana Spencer. However, when asked about it, Lady Fermoy remarked: “You can say that if you like – but it simply wouldn’t be true”.[6] She was also said to have counselled her granddaughter against the marriage, saying “Darling, you must understand that their sense of humour and their lifestyle are different, and I don’t think it will suit you.”[7] Lady Fermoy was a firm believer in the sanctity of marriage. In 1969, her daughter Frances and John Spencer, Viscount Althorp, were divorced. Lady Fermoy testified against Frances, allowing Lord Spencer to retain custody of his children.[2]

    Lady Fermoy died at her home at 36 Eaton Square, London,[8] aged 84. It was reported that she was not on speaking terms with Diana when she died.

    Lady Fermoy was born Ruth Sylvia Gill at her father’s house, Dalhebity, Bieldside, Aberdeenshire, the daughter of Colonel William Smith Gill and his wife Ruth (the daughter of David Littlejohn.

    The Standard Oil Trust was controlled by a small group of families. Rockefeller stated in 1910: “I think it is true that the Pratt family, the Payne-Whitney family (which were one, as all the stock came from Colonel Payne), the Harkness-Flagler family (which came into the Company together) and the Rockefeller family controlled a majority of the stock during all the history of the Company up to the present time”.[12]

    These families reinvested most of the dividends in other industries, especially railroads. They also invested heavily in the gas and the electric lighting business (including the giant Consolidated Gas Company of New York City). They made large purchases of stock in US Steel, Amalgamated Copper, and even Corn Products Refining Company.[13]

    [edit] Standard Oil In ChinaStandard Oil’s production increased so rapidly it soon exceeded US demand and the company began viewing export markets. In the 1890s, Standard Oil began marketing kerosene to China’s large population of close to 400 million as lamp fuel.[14] For its Chinese trademark and brand Standard Oil adopted the name “Mei Foo”, translating roughly as beautiful and trustworthy or beautiful confidence.[15][16] Mei Foo also became the name of the tin lamp that Standard Oil produced and gave away or sold cheaply to Chinese peasants, encouraging them to switch from vegetable oil to kerosene. Response was positive, sales boomed and China became Standard Oil’s largest market in Asia. Prior to Pearl Harbor, Stanvac was the largest single US investment in SE Asia.[17]

    Socony’s North China Department operated a subsidiary called Socony River and Coastal Fleet, North Coast Division, which became the North China Division of Stanvac after that company was formed in 1933.[18] To distribute its products, Standard Oil constructed storage tanks, canneries (bulk oil from large ocean tankers was re-packaged into 5-gallon tins), warehouses and offices in key Chinese cities. For inland distribution the Company had motor tank trucks and railway tank cars, and for river navigation it had a fleet of low draft steamers and other vessels.[19] Stanvac’s North China Division, based in Shanghai, owned hundreds of river going vessels, including motor barges, steamers, launches, tugboats and tankers.[20] Up to 13 tankers operated on the Yangtze River, the largest of which were Mei Ping (1,118 gt), Mei Hsia (1,048 gt),and Mei An (934 gt).[21] All three were destroyed in the 1937 USS Panay incident.[22] Mei An was launched in 1901 and was the first vessel in the fleet. Other vessels included Mei Chuen, Mei Foo, Mei Hung, Mei Kiang, Mei Lu, Mei Tan, Mei Su, Mei Xia, Mei Ying, and Mei Yun. Mei Hsia, a tanker, was specially designed for river duty and was built by New Engineering and Shipbuilding Works of Shanghai, who also built the 500-ton launch Mei Foo in 1912. Mei Hsia (“Beautiful Gorges”) was launched in 1926 and carried 350 tons of bulk oil in three holds, plus a forward cargo hold and space between decks for carrying general cargo or packed oil. She had a length of 206 feet (63 m), a beam of 32 feet (9.8 m), depth of 10 feet 6 inches (3.20 m) and had a bulletproof wheelhouse. Mei Ping (“Beautiful Tranquility”) launched in 1927, was designed offshore but assembled and finished in Shanghai. It’s oil fuel burners came from the U.S. and water tube boilers came from England.

    The Oeri-Hoffman clan controls Roche pharmaceuticals through a quirk in Swiss law that allows the families to control 50.1% of the company’s voting rights while owning only 10% of its share capital. It’s a sweetheart deal the families and Roche’s board have defended rigorously, saying family ownership allows them to take a long-term outlook. That said, analysts say the dual share structure could make it difficult for Roche to enhance its relatively stagnant business through a merger. The Roche board says it’ll address the share structure issue if the right deal comes along. Fair enough–but meanwhile, as the debate has continued, Roche’s stock has slipped 21% since May.

    Breitbart News obtained an advance copy of the bombshell report which reveals that the Obama.com website is not owned by the president’s campaign but rather by Obama bundler Robert Roche, a U.S. citizen living in Shanghai, China. Roche is the chairman of a Chinese infomercial company, Acorn International, with ties to state-controlled banks that allow it to “gain revenue through credit card transactions with Chinese banks.”

    There’s more.

    The unusual Obama.com website redirects traffic directly to a donation page on the Obama campaign’s official website, my.barackobama.com, which does not require donors to enter their credit card security code (known as the CVV code), thereby increasing the likelihood of foreign or fraudulent donations. The website is managed by a small web development firm, Wicked Global, in Maine. One of Wicked Global’s employees, Greg Dorr, lists on his LinkedIn page his additional employment with Peace Action Maine and Maine Voices for Palestinian Rights. According to the GAI report, 68 percent of all Internet traffic to Obama.com comes from foreign visitors.

    And still more.

    In 2011, Mr. Roche obtained one of the most sought-after pieces of real estate in Washington, DC: a seat at the head table for President Obama’s State Dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao. How Roche—a man whose infomercial company hawks fitness equipment, cell phones, and breast enhancement products—landed a seat alongside Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, Sen. John Kerry, former President Jimmy Carter, and Chinese President Hu Jintao remains unclear.

    Since 2009, White House Visitor Logs list the name Robert Roche at least 19 times, despite the fact Mr. Roche’s primary residence is in China.

    Mr. Roche, who is originally from Chicago, is a co-chair of the Technology Initiative for the Obama campaign.

    According to Acorn International’s prospectus, the success of Mr. Roche’s company hinges on maintaining access to state-run media and “preferential tax treatments and subsidies” doled out by the People’s Republic of China (PRC):

    Our business depends on our access to TV media time to market our products and services in China….PRC law is vague and is subject to discretionary interpretation and enforcement by PRC authorities…Loss of these preferential tax treatments and subsidies could have material and adverse effects on our results of operations and financial conditions.

    In addition to the Obama.com redirect revelation, the Government Accountability Institute report—America the Vulnerable: Are Foreign And Fraudulent Online Contributions Influencing U.S. Elections?—exposes myriad gaping online security holes that stand to threaten the integrity of House, Senate, and presidential elections.

    Stay tuned to Breitbart News for continuing coverage…

    F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd. is a Swiss global health-care company that operates worldwide under two divisions: Pharmaceuticals and Diagnostics. Its holding company, Roche Holding AG, has shares listed on the SIX Swiss Exchange.

    The company headquarters are located in Basel and the company has many pharmaceutical and diagnostic sites around the world – including: Nutley, NJ; Pleasanton, CA; Branchburg, NJ; Indianapolis, Indiana; Florence, South Carolina; and Ponce, Puerto Rico in the US; Welwyn Garden City and Burgess Hill in the UK; Clarecastle in Ireland; Mannheim and Penzberg in Germany; Mississauga and Laval in Canada; Shanghai in China; Mumbai & Hyderabad in India; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Segrate, Milan in Italy; Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore in Pakistan.

    The company also owns the American biotechnology company Genentech, which is a wholly owned affiliate, and the Japanese biotechnology company Chugai Pharmaceuticals as well as the Tucson, Arizona based Ventana.

    Roche’s revenues during fiscal year 2010 were CHF 47.49 billion.[2] Descendants of the founding Hoffmann and Oeri families own slightly over half of the company, with Swiss pharma firm Novartis owning a further third of its shares.[2]

    F. Hoffmann–La Roche is a full member of the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA).[3]

    Founded in 1896 by Fritz Hoffmann-La Roche, the company was early on known for producing various vitamin preparations and derivatives. In 1934, it became the first company to mass produce synthetic vitamin C, under the brand name Redoxon. In 1957 it introduced the class of tranquilizers known as benzodiazepines (with Valium and Rohypnol being the best known members). Its acne drug isotretinoin, marketed as Accutane and Roaccutane, also used as a form of chemotherapy for some cancers, has been linked with a number of severe side effects and remains highly controversial but highly effective at the same time. Roche has also produced various HIV tests and antiretroviral drugs. It bought the patents for the polymerase chain reaction technique in 1992. It manufactures and sells several cancer drugs.

    In 1976, an accident at a chemical factory in Seveso, Italy owned by a subsidiary of Roche caused a large dioxin contamination; see Seveso disaster.

    In 1982, the United States arm of the company acquired Biomedical Reference Laboratories for US$163.5 million. That company dated from the late 1960s, and was located in Burlington, North Carolina. That year Hoffmann–La Roche then merged it with all of its laboratories, and incorporated the merged company as Roche Biomedical Laboratories, Inc. in Burlington. By the early 1990s, Roche Biomedical became one of the largest clinical laboratory networks in the United States, with 20 major laboratories and US$600 million in sales.[4]

    On April 28, 1995 Hoffmann–La Roche sold Roche Biomedical Laboratories, Inc. to National Health Laboratories Holdings Inc. (which then changed its name to Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings).[5] Roche acquired Syntex in 1994 and Chugai Pharmaceuticals in 2002.

    On 12 March 2009 Roche agreed to fully acquire Genentech, in which it had held a majority stake since 1990,[6] after 8 months of negotiations. As a result of the Genentech acquisition, Roche closed its Palo Alto based research facilities and moved them to Nutley while the US Headquarters in Nutley was moved to Genentech’s facility in South San Francisco.[7] Genentech became a wholly owned subsidiary group of Roche on 25 March 2009.[8]

    In 2011, the company received the ISPE Facility of the Year Award for Process Innovation for Roche’s “MyDose” Clinical Supply project.[9]

    On 26 June 2012 Roche announces closure of Nutley, NJ site Business operations to cease by end of 2013; site plant to be shut down by end of 2015[10] As of 28 June 2012 The RocheUSA.com portal for Nutley still indicated that “To maintain our innovative focus, the 127-acre site in New Jersey is expanding its research base and will become one of the largest R&D centers for Roche. Nutley is the center for the Oncology, Inflammation and Virology Discovery and Translational Areas (DTAs). These areas have a rich pipeline comprised of novel first-in-class and best-in-class compounds and have at their disposal the expertise of scientists in Discovery Technologies.” But the NYTimes reported on 26 June 2012 that “Roche, the Swiss pharmaceutical company, said Tuesday that it would shut down its site in Nutley, N.J., which served as its American headquarters for 80 years, in an effort to cut costs. About 1,000 jobs would be lost, the company said.”[11]

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbie_Hoffman
    Abbot Howard “Abbie” Hoffman (November 30, 1936 – April 12, 1989) was a political and social activist who co-founded the Youth International Party (“Yippies”).

    Hoffman was arrested and tried for conspiracy and inciting to riot as a result of his role in protests that led to violent confrontations with police during the 1968 Democratic National Convention, along with Jerry Rubin, David Dellinger, Tom Hayden, Rennie Davis, John Froines, Lee Weiner and Bobby Seale. The group was known collectively as the “Chicago Eight”; when Seale’s prosecution was separated from the others, they became known as the Chicago Seven. While the defendants were initially convicted of intent to incite a riot, the verdicts were overturned on appeal.

    Hoffman came to prominence in the 1960s, and continued practicing his activism in the 1970s, and has remained a symbol of the youth rebellion of that era.

    From comment above again;

    George F. Talman
    He was born in New York City in 1795 and graduated from Columbia [1814]. He was a law partner of his brother-in-law, Henry G. Wisner, until 1825. He was a law partner of Ogden Hoffman, then became the New York agent of the American Trust Company of Baltimore until it wound up its affairs, when he became a vice president of the Farmers’ Loan and Trust.
