20. the mother is the one in "high society", the rockefeller guy doesn't add up
Edited on Mon Jul-28-08 08:33 PM by carlyhippy
they know little of him, maybe he made up rockefeller as the last name, who knows...isn't it a coincidence that the first Rockefeller business venture was a business called Clark & Rockefeller?

This is from the NY Times *snip*

In telephone interviews on Monday, Amy Fitch and Michele Hiltzik, senior archivists at the Rockefeller Archive Center in Sleepy Hollow, N.Y., which maintains the records of the Rockefeller family associated with Standard Oil, philanthropy and politics, said there was no indication that Clark Rockefeller was a descendant of William Avery Rockefeller, the father of John D. Rockefeller Sr. and William Rockefeller.
(John D. Rockefeller Sr., the oil tycoon, and his son John D. Jr., the philanthropist, made the Rockefeller name famous. The five sons of John D. Rockefeller Jr. John D. III, Nelson, Laurance, Winthrop and David continued to extend the familys name. Nelson A. Rockefeller was governor of New York and vice president of the United States under President Gerald R. Ford. Winthrop was governor of Arkansas. David, the only one of the five brothers still living, was head of the Chase Manhattan Bank, and has been a major fixture in New York life for decades.)
In 2004, The Valley News, in Lebanon, N.H., reported that Mr. Rockefeller refused to confirm whether or not he was related, directly or otherwise, to the famed Rockefeller family. Maybe I am, maybe Im not; its not something that I would either confirm or deny, Clark Rockefeller responded, according to the paper. I just dont want anything to do with the whole question.
The newspaper was trying to determine Clark Rockefellers lineage after he reportedly wrote a $110,000 check
