About Robert T Edwards, Jr.

he was born in Wales, he had 7 brothers and one sister. Robert Edwards got this land as a land grant (two portions of Manhattan Island) from the king of England. He leased the land out and in his will it said if anything happend to him the land would go to his brothers and sister. Well, once the will was written, Robert left to return to Wales and the ship got lost at sea and he died. The land should have been Thomas's and his brothers and sister but the people Robert leased it to took it. Their surname was Cruger. To make the long story short, a lady hired a lawyer to investigate, the lawyer lied cuz he got paid not to tell, the lawyer died, the files of it were burnt in a church. Later, someone else took it to court and the court kept stalling and once the case was seen, the court said it was about two weeks late and that the land didn't belong to the Edwards anymore. So we lost our land - two large portions of Manhattan Island worth estimated $680 billion +
