I Try To Keep Everything In Perspective...

On Coretta Scott King's tombstone: "And now abide Faith, Hope, Love, These Three; but the greatest of these is Love."

I have faith that justice will prevail, I hope all the truth comes out and I love every minute when I am prosecuting evildoers.

Sometimes it's hard to hold on to those three--the first one, to whit-- and it's been tough since 2000, especially when one can't do much more than cheer on those who wield the sword. It's good to patch in to the Bearers, those who can, and know how, and see that somewhere, at least, someone with the power still shines a light and something good might happen.

The clipping was reprinted in "Our Ancestors",
February 6, 1957. There are a number of "facts" given that have proven
to be in error as well—these are documented in the pages that follow.

"Denver, Colo., Aug. 10---C. E. BELL of Louisville, Ky., arrived in
this city a few days ago for the purpose of consulting with his
attorney, John C. Keegan, and is perfecting claims of heir to the
Brandenburg estate situated near Berlin, Germany, and valued at
$10,000,000.00. Mr. Bell said yesterday that all the heirs of this
estate live in America. They number nearly a hundred, and are
confident
of their ability to obtain possession of their property, out of their
hands nearly 200 years.

"Solomon Brandenburg, about the year 1700, offended one of the Royal
Hohenzollerns and had his estate confiscated by the Crown as
punishment. MATTHIAS BRANDENBURGH , the only heir of Solomon, came to
America and settled with his family in Winchester, Virginia. Then
they
removed to Meade County, Kentucky, where he was killed by an accident
in
1807, leaving a family of 12 children, one of whom was the grandfather
of Mr. Bell. Before his death, MATTHIAS told his family of the estate
in Germany and the first confirmation of his words was the appearance
of
an advertisement in American and German papers in 1862, inquiring the
whereabouts of the heirs of Solomon Brandenburgh, several years before
a
bill passed the Reichstag restoring the estate. The castle on the
estate is said to be one of the handsomest in Europe and is at present
tenanted by Court Herbert von Bismarck."
I haven’t attempted to locate the records of the Denver attorney, John
C. Keegan, but, if they could be found, they might contain the names
and
addresses of the "nearly a hundred" Brandenburghs, and other
interesting
material as well !
Mr. Bell was "never able to force recognition by the government"
(German?). Brandenburgh researchers have since spent thousands of
dollars and years of time trying to locate proof that one of our
ancestors was a half-brother to Frederick II The Great (1712-1786), to
no avail; however, a few years ago a Solomon Brandenburg was located
in
the Netherlands. (See page 499). (By B. A. Deatrick)

"I have a hand written family history written, by my g-g-grandfather,
Henry Theodore Brandenburg, in 1889, establishing that he personally
knew the five sons of William Henry Brandenburg, his great
grandfather.
In this letter he states his grandfather William Brandenburg was "born
on the water" October 8, 1758. His father was Henry Brandenburg (b 19
Aug 1781). The dates were taken from his father’s Bible. He died
February 28, 1891 in his grandson’s (S. H. Sibert, M.D) home in
Fryburg,
Ohio and is buried in St. Mary’s, Ohio. This was written at that time
to establish heirship to a vast estate in Germany, the land Berlin is
built upon, and also a huge estate in Maryland (i.e., the land under
Baltimore!). They had several family members searching and lawyers
meeting here and abroad. At that time it was estimated to be 2000
heirs
in America. The value of these estates were as follows (1889). To
the
heirs of Matthias and Solomon $12,000,000. To the heirs of Matthias
alone by bequest of two maiden aunts $14,000,000. To the heirs of
William Heinrich $11,000,000. (Jeff Shepler Jan. 22, 1999)

can someone help on this one- the lost heir they wrote about is my great great great grandfather and this is not a joke.

From what I have read about the Libby trial, It sounds like you did a superb job, Mr Fitzgerald.
Thank you!
I wait for the verdict.
Keep on them, please, Mr Fitzgerald.

The truth is if any Republican or Democrat doesn't want Mr. Fitzgerald to continue to look into the crimes against the country, then they are against the People.

Where Gonzales works for Bush/Cheney. Team America and all the decent attorneys losing their jobs lately work for the People of the United States.

There are so few people who are willing to take a stand and protect the majority of the population vulnerable to the powerful who would abuse their position;

You need to add Brave and Courageous....

Thank you Fitz and Team....
