On April Fool’s day of 1882, Aline Louise Barnsdall was born in Bradford, Chester County, Pennsylvania to Theodore Newton Barnsdall who was an oil man and his wife. Theodore it seems was not so fond of the wife and had another child, with another woman, after Aline. Aline later had her own child, but was a single parent of her daughter “Sugartop”. Also see her father’s connections to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baker_Hughes. Barnsdall Oil Co. / Bigheart Oil Field, 1916, purchased local Bigheart Producing and Refining Co. Barnsdall Refining Co. renamed itself Bareco Oil in 1940. Petrolite Corp. now part of Baker Hughes Inc. bought Bareco Oil and continues to operate the plant.

Photos Barnsdall, Theodore NewtonHe was the largest independent oil producer of his time.
Aline Barnsdall had a home built by John Lloyd Wright that became too costly. It was called Hollyhock. John made Lincoln Logs and some inteesting homes as well, found here:
Lloyd Wright’s mother was Frank Lloyd Wright’s first wife, Catherine Lee “Kitty” Tobin. He was the eldest son of the couple, and grew up in the surroundings of the 1889 Wright home and studio in Oak Park. Lloyd briefly attended the University of Wisconsin in Madison, before leaving for a job at the Boston-based landscape architecture firm of the Olmsted Brothers. Specializing in botany and horticulture, he continued to pursue the interrelation of landscape and buildings through his life.
He settled in Southern California around 1911, followed by his younger brother John Lloyd Wright. The Olmsteds had sent him to assist with the landscape design of the 1915 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego with architects Irving Gill, Bertram Goodhue, and Carleton Winslow. The exposition’s principal buildings and gardens still remain in Balboa Park. Landscape design led him to work with Los Angeles architect William J. Dodd and in San Diego with Irving Gill, the latter another master architect and mentor to his design career.
Beginning in 1919, his father, working in Japan on the Imperial Hotel, delegated some of the responsibilities to him and architect Rudolf Schindler for designing and supervising construction of the Hollyhock House, in Hollywood, California. The house was commissioned by the oil heiress and philanthropist Aline Barnsdall.
Wright began his independent career in 1920. In 1922 he was a production designer at Paramount Studios, responsible for the extensive castle and 12th-century village sets for the Douglas Fairbanks version of Robin Hood.
In December 1922, Wright prepared plans for the Otto Bollman House in Hollywood that included a repeated pattern of concrete blocks, a precursor to his father’s more famous “textile block” houses in the Los Angeles area.  From 1923 through 1926 the younger Wright was drawn into the realization of these four houses, and the ambitious attempt to evolve the “textile block” system into a patented construction technique. The first was the 1923 Millard House in Pasadena, where Lloyd designed the grounds, and contributed an adjacent studio building in 1926. Lloyd served as construction manager for the other three: the Storer House (1923), the Samuel Freeman House (1923), and the Ennis House (1924). By all accounts Lloyd’s work was difficult as he shuttled back and forth between sites, communicating with his father via telegram, and receiving little constructive support from Taliesin.
The Duchess is the younger daughter of Major Ronald Ferguson and Susan Barrantes (née Wright). Her children, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie of York, are respectively fifth and sixth in the line of succession to the thrones of 16 independent Commonwealth realms.
Next we have a middle eastern Fadila, a princess of Egypt:
She was born to a Jewish family in Paris as the daughter of Robert Loeb and his wife Paule Madeleine Picard. When a student of 29 she wrote her doctoral thesis at the Sorbonne on the Psychology of Women in The Book of One Thousand and One Nights.
At Monaco’s royal palace, she met and began her courtship with HM King Fuad II, whom she married on 16 April 1976 in Monaco. Although she married Fuad II after the loss of his throne, she was still styled Her Majesty Queen Fadila of Egypt by monarchists. The marriage ended in divorce in 1996, and since 1999 she is styled Her Royal Highness Princess Fadila of Egypt.
The marriage was dissolved in 2008 with the style and title removed by Fuad. In 2002, her Paris apartment was taken from her due to her outstanding debts.
They have 3 children:
- HRH Princess Fawzia-Latifa of Egypt (born 12 February 1982)
- HRH Prince Fakhruddin of Egypt (born 25 August 1987)
And in Aline Louise Barnsdall’s family we find another Fadilia, of the Goodrich family:

Eldred Gregory Peck was born in La Jolla, California, the son of Missouri-born Bernice Mae “Bunny” (née Ayres) and Gregory Pearl Peck, a New York-born chemist and pharmacist. His father was of Irish (maternal) heritage and English (paternal) heritage, while his mother had Scottish and English ancestry. Peck’s father was a Catholic and his mother converted to the religion upon marrying his father. Peck was related to Thomas Ashe, who took part in the Easter Rising fewer than three weeks after Peck’s birth and died while on hunger strike in 1917, through his Irish-born paternal grandmother, Catherine Ashe.

Jarrett was born in Shiraz, Iran to American parents James E. Bowman and Barbara Taylor Bowman. Her father, a pathologist and geneticist, ran a hospital for children in Shiraz in 1950, as part of a program where American physicians and agricultural experts sought to help jump-start developing countries’ health and farming efforts.
When she was five, the family moved to London for one year, later moving to Chicago in 1963.
In 1966 her mother was one of four child advocates that created the Erikson Institute. The Institute was established to provide advanced knowledge in child development for teachers and other professionals working with young children.
Patrick or Pat Taylor may refer to:

Patrick F. Taylor (1937–2004), founder of Taylor Energy
Taylor graduated from Louisiana State University with a degree in petroleum engineering. After working for independent oilman John W. Mecom, Sr., he established a consulting company. Along with Mecom, he founded the Circle Bar Drilling company in the 1970s. After Circle Bar was sold, he started Taylor Energy Company. Taylor Energy became the largest privately held oil and gas company in the Gulf of Mexico.
Taylor had a strong interest in education and humanitarian causes. He developed and promoted the “Taylor Plan”, adopted in Louisiana in 1998, which provides academically qualified students with state-paid tuition to college. It is known as the Taylor Opportunity Program for Students, or TOPS for short.
In 2004, Taylor was named #234 to the Forbes 400, a list compiled by Forbes magazine of the 400 richest Americans.
Before his death in 2004, the Patrick F. Taylor Science and Technology Academy in Jefferson, Louisiana was named after him. Each year, the school celebrates Founder’s Day to honor the man who gave so much to Louisiana education. Taylor’s widowed wife continues to play a close role with the school, visiting often, taking part in graduations, and accompanying students on trips to the Alabama Shakespeare Festival.
In 2007, a building on the LSU campus was renamed in honor of Taylor and all his accomplishments.
Secured the oil rights to King Hussein’s oil:
He was once ranked as one of the top oil independents; however, he filed for bankruptcy in 1970. After reorganizing his John W. Mecom Company, he reopened his company, which he subsequently ran with his son, John W. Mecom Jr., former owner of the New Orleans Saints NFL football team.
On December 18, 1964, Mecom’s private plane was mistakenly shot down by the Egyptian air force, killing both pilot and co-pilot. While Mecom survived, the incident strained U.S.-Egypt relations, Mecom being a friend and donor of Lyndon Johnson.
