‘Jew’s Land’ Revisted

The Women’s March ground to a halt over issues I presented in this blog that made me enemies. As a true Prophet of God, this is the price you pay.

Seer Jon

They say they disagree with anti-Semitic and homophobic statements, but will not condemn them specifically. When asked about the controversies on media outlets, they frequently refuse to even say the words Jewish or LGBTQ. They post dog whistles about dual loyalties and that their critics are the same as Jesus’s. They explain eloquently that they choose to condemn bigotry (but not bigots), yet condemn Anti-Defamation League.

Tyler Hunt and Samuel Josefa De Mattos

Today my grandson, Tyler Hunt, turns seven years of age. Happy birthday grandson!In June of 2010 I was offered an acre of land in South Carolina by a descendant of King David, Samuel Josefa de Mattos Jr. I had asked Samuel for permission to walk on his land he purchased at Plantation Point after reading my blogs about the “Jew’s land” that belonged to his ancestors who were Sephardic Jews who founded Reform Judaism in Charleston, then declared this was the New Promised Land, with no return to Zion. To learn that Reform Jews believed Berlin was the New Jerusalem, brings an end of my long journey because my kindred lived on Berlin Avenue where a famous Jewish cemetery is found.

It appears I have been raised as the Nehushtan that I believe came from India and China, and was the brass serpent that Moses raised high as he came into the Valley of Death where poison snakes abound. However, with 650,000 folks following the Nehushtan that warded off snakes, it was the snakes being warned – get out of THE WAY!

The Nehushtan is the constellation, Draco, that every year around the Day of Atonement sends thousands of shooting stars to earth. These stars look like reptiles raining down from heaven. Imagine being in the desert back then with no city lights. These are the Seraphs the “serpents of fire” The comets that came right on top of you looked liked a many winged serpent because of the flames shooting out the side. This is my conclusion. The Nehushatan was found on the heights, and was central to the worship of the Levites. I was born October 8th. 1946 two minutes past sundown, when the might sky was filled with shooting stars from the eye of Draco.

The nameless angel that appear to Samson’s parents, may have been a Nehushtan- Seraph sent from the throne of God. A burning coal was put in the mouth of Nehushtan so it could be seen at night, like a shooting star. When it was carried, a trail of smoke followed behind.

When my daughter came into my life at sixteen I was a fatherless Sage studying the Torah over twelves hours a day. When Tyler was born, I came to see him and took him to the Suttmeister-Janke crypt in Colma. My kindred appear to be 48ers, and Turnvereins who may have believed what their Jewish counterparts believed, that Berlin was the New Jerusalem.

Samuel buys and sell old weaving looms. The Rosamond family were weavers. Consider the weaver’s needle on the Rosamond cote of arms, and the spindle on the Rougemont Templar cote of arms flanked by two camels. Samuel is kin to Moses Montefiore, whom Joaquin Miller built a monument to in the shape of a pyramid. Moses used his vast wealth to make Jewish colonies in Israel. I have restored the original cosmology of Samuel;s people, and perhaps my own. It is my gift to Samuel and his family, forever, and ever, for until Samuel’s legacy, all the gifts meant for me in this life, were intercepted. My aunt and uncle June and Vincent Rice, will forever be made immortal, for they are joined on google next to the DeMattos family, and, Samson, for I adopt this childless couple as my parents. They will never be forgotten, nor their generous gift to me and members of my family.

Being a poor man, this acre of land is my legacy to my grandson, who I called Sceaf. When he comes to walk upon it, may he raise a Nehushatan, there, at the end of Middleton Place overlooking Greenwood Lake.

I have awoken the kingdom of God and raised the Nehushtan on the high places!

It is done! Come out of your tombs and hear the angels sing once again!

The Promised Land

“For his first birthday I promised my Grandson, Tyler Hunt, a kingdom. American
Democracy has awoken from the demonic spell put upon it. Let the celebration
begin!”
On June 8, 2010, I got a call from a stranger, Samuel Josefa de Mattos, a
descendant of a famous Sephardic Jewish family. He said he had come across my
study on Rougeknights and said; “You appear to know more about my family then I
do.”

We talked about his ancestor, Francis Salvador who was killed by Indians. Samuel
said his kinfolk left the “Jews land” around the small town of Hodges due to the
hostile natives. The Rosamond family may have done the same, they moving to
Mississippi leaving their plantations behind. Did the de Mattos and the Rosmonds
know one another?

Samuel then informed me he had purchased sixty one acres near Plantation Point
that runs to the shore of Greenwood Lake. He had read about the “Jews land” the
Hodge family has once owned. He deliberately bought this land so it can be owned
by descendants of King David once again. I told Samuel about Samuel and James
Rosamond who fought under Francis Marion in the Revolutionary War. I asked for
permission to take my daughter and grandson to this land against owned by a
family whose genealogy is found in the Bible. Samuel replied;

“Jon, not only do you have my permission, but I am going to give you an acre of
this land!”

I felt faint. I could not believe what Samuel offered me, for it is the end of
my prophetic book, where I promise my grandson a kingdom, where I compare my
rosy story to the Sleeping Beauty Princess, named Rosamond. Here is the Return
of The King, in the Red Branch Knight prophecy to the Promised Land.
Here is what my great, great grandfather, James Rosamond says in his will;
To my three sons, Thomas, Benjamin, and Samuel, I leave the rest of my land; to
be divided equally amongst them and to be given to them as they come of age. I
allow my wife to have use of it while she lives, the tract of land that I now
live on. On her death, this land will be equally divided between Thomas,
Benjamin and Samuel.

That my acre will be next door to a descendant of King David whose kingdom the
Zionist Christians and Jews are trying to restore in Israel, is profound! In the
Peerage we read; Esther Montefiore is the daughter of Samuel Montefiore and
Grace de Mattos Mocatta.1 She married Judah Guedalla. This is the family of
Moses Montefiore whom Joaquin Miller built a pyramid monument to, suggesting he
was a moder day Moses! The new address of the New Promised Land is 339 Middleton
Road on the land known as Plantation Point. Was the Rosamond plantation located
here?

I blessed Samuel and his family and when we said goodbye he called me “Brother”.
I then -emailed my good friend Mark Gall, whose Jewish mother always had a
reserved seat for me at her table at the resthome, and she only asked for me to……

One week ago I awoke and heard my Angel. She told me I had found the Shekinah. I
wondered if she was saying I was very close to finding the Light of God. This
was not the case. I had arrived.
“You have found me.”
My heart beating, I went to my computer and picked up the thread of my study
where I had left off. I was looking at the “Jews Land” and the coat of arms of
Doctor Mendes de Costa whose family lived on St. Eustatius. Regrettably they
were heavily involved in the slave trade. I suspect they made the blue glass
beads that Ponce de Leon used to entice Native Americans into making bad deals,
as well as enslaving them. Noble Jews expelled from Granada accompanied de Leon
in his voyage. I believe the Lion in de Costa’s coat of arms represents the
kingdom of Leon. The fleur de leaves I suspect represents Burgundy as you will
later see.
“What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor.”
David da Costa owned seven white servants. He bought three of them who were
felons. They were Christians. My ancestor John `The Highwayman’ Rosamond was a
felon sent from England to America and purchased by an un-known person in
Delaware. That the Rosamond family later bought land owned by the da Costa
family suggests the term of the indentured servitude had exspired, and having
served alongside the Jewish hero, Francis Salvador, perhaps the Rosamond family
was being honored and rewarded. Were they given a good deal on this land?

Sam de Mattos Jr., Sales, Brazil and Latin America

08, sixth, 19h: Launching of the book Pope Beetles, Sam de Mattos. Nets Publishing company
This novel – almost autobiográfica – has as protagonist Bino Tedesco, a young that had to leave Brazil in years 70, running away from the military repression. The workmanship tells to the adventures and desventuras of Bino for the roads of Latin America until arriving at the United States and its experience in the country of “self-made men”. The personage goes, throughout crooked and poeirentas roads, accumulating experiences that if they establish to its soul, as beetles in the windscreen of a bus, “Pope-beetles”. Tearing borders – literal or imaginary – innumerable Bino goes accumulating “bugs”.
When leading the reader for the history of the personage, Sam de Mattos makes it with the slightness, presenting a clipping of what he was to live – in Brazil and the World – during years 70.
The chaining of the personage to the historical facts, cultural politicians and of that period is described with realism, evoking candies and bitter souvenirs to they had lived that it and serving of rich panorama for that not yet they had been born.
Samuel (Sam) of Mattos Jr was born in Victory, in the Espirito Santo. He lives has 40 years in U.S.A., 22 of them in the Carolina of the South, where he is Managing of Sales of the Atkins Machinery. Formed in Creative Writings and Journalism for California State University.

1 Samuel 10:5
5 Afterward you will come to [a]the hill of God where the Philistine garrison is; and it shall be as soon as you have come there to the city, that you will meet a group of prophets coming down from the high place with harp, tambourine, flute, and a lyre before them, and they will be prophesying.

The narrative in Joshua argues that the territory was taken by the Levites right after Joshua’s conquest of Canaan, but this cannot be correct,[3] as it is contradicted not only by archaeological evidence, but also by narratives in the Book of Judges, Books of Samuel, and Books of Kings;[9][10] Kedesh, for example, appears to have actually remained as a shrine to deities other than Yahweh.[3] The conclusion of most biblical scholars is thus that the whole system of Levite cities, in the Torah and deuteronomic history, is an attempt to explain the fact that important early sanctuaries existed at these locations, and thus were places where members of the priesthood naturally came to reside in large numbers;[3] scholars believe that the priesthood was originally open to any tribe, but gradually became seen as a distinct tribe to themselves – the Levites.[3][11]

Role in Reform and Reconstructionist Judaism
Reform and Reconstructionist Judaism do not believe in the rebuilding of a central Temple or a restoration of Temple sacrifices or worship. They regard the Temple and sacrificial era as a period of a more primitive form of ritual which Judaism (in their view) has evolved out of and should not return to. They also believe a special role for Kohanim and Levites represents a caste system incompatible with modern principles of egalitarianism, and do not preserve these roles. Furthermore, there is a Reform view that the shul or synagogue is a modern Temple; hence, “Temple” appears in numerous congregation names in Reform Judaism. Indeed, the re-designation of the synagogue as “temple” was one of the hallmarks of early Reform in 19th century Germany, when Berlin was declared the new Jerusalem, and Reform Jewry sought to demonstrate their staunch German nationalism. The Anti-Zionism that characterized Reform Judaism throughout much of its history subsided somewhat with the Holocaust in Europe and the later successes of the modern state of Israel. The belief in the return of the Jews to the Temple in Jerusalem is not part of mainstream Reform Judaism.

Goel (go’el) is a Hebrew term which comes from the word gal’al (“to redeem”), hence meaning “redeemer”, which in the Bible and the rabbinical tradition denotes a person who as the nearest relative of another is charged with the duty of restoring the rights of another and avenging his wrongs. In the Authorized King James Bible, it is rendered “kinsman”, “redeemer”, and “avenger”.
In the book of Isaiah God is called the redeemer of Israel, as he redeems his people from captivity; the context shows that the redemption also involves moving on to something greater. In Christianity, the title goel is applied to Christ, who redeems us from all evil by the payment of a ransom.

[edit] Duties of the goel
The obligations of the goel include the duty to redeem the relative from slavery, if the latter had been obliged to sell himself into serfdom (Leviticus 25: 48-49); to repurchase the property of a relative who had had to sell it because of poverty; to avenge the blood of his relative; to marry his brother’s widow in order to have a son for his brother, in case the brother had not got any son to pass his name forth (Deuteronomy 25:5-6); and to receive the restitution if the injured relative had died (Numbers 5:8).
Numbers 35:9-30 regulates the duties of the goel. The congregation has to judge the case before it puts a murderer in the hands of a goel. More than one witness is needed for conviction. In case of accidental manslaughter, the slayer can save his life by fleeing to a “city of refuge” and staying there for the term of the high priest (who is appointed for his lifetime). Ransom is not accepted for murder. Revenge cannot be taken on the offender’s children or parents (Deuteronomy 24:16). Leviticus 25:48-49 gives the order in which the nearest relative is considered the goel in the case of redeeming a slave: brother, uncle, male cousin and then other relatives. The same order was probably observed in the other cases, except in marrying a sister-in-law.
Jewish tradition has also ascribed to the blood avenger the role performed in modern times by a prosecuting attorney, who thus pleads on behalf of the victim the case against the criminal. Thus, he is responsible for bringing the offender to court, finding evidence against him, presenting the case to the court, and collecting damages from the offender. It is also his task to argue against any attempts to pardon the sinner.[1]

A seraph (pl. seraphim ( /ˈsɛr.ə.fɪm/[1]); Hebrew: שְׂרָפִים śərāfîm, singular שָׂרָף śārāf; Latin: seraphi[m], singular seraph[us]; Greek: σεραφείμ) is a type of celestial or heavenly being in the Abrahamic religions.
Literally “burning ones”, the word seraph is normally a synonym for serpents when used in the Hebrew Bible. A seminal passage in the Book of Isaiah (6.1-8) used the term to describe fiery six-winged beings that fly around God’s throne singing “holy, holy, holy”. This throne scene, with its triple invocation of holiness (a formula that came to be known as the trisagion), profoundly influenced subsequent theology, literature and art. Its influence is frequently seen in works depicting angels, heaven and apotheosis. Seraphs are mentioned as celestial beings in an influential Hellenistic work, the Book of Enoch, and the Book of Revelation. Tradition places seraphs in the fifth rank of ten in the Jewish angelic hierarchy and the highest rank in the Christian angelic hierarchy.

[edit] Origins and development
The word seraphim, literally “burning ones”, transliterates a Hebrew plural noun; translation yields seraphs. The singular, “seraph”, is more properly rendered sarap. The word sarap/seraphim appears three times in the Torah (Numbers 21:6-8, Deuteronomy 8:15) and four times in the Book of Isaiah (6:2-6, 14:29, 30:6). In Numbers and Deuteronomy the “seraphim” are serpents – the association of serpents as “burning ones” is possibly due to the burning sensation of the poison.[2] Isaiah also uses the word in close association with words to describe snakes (nahash, the generic word for snakes, in 14:29, and efeh, viper, in 30:6).
The Isaiah vision of seraphs in an idealised Jerusalem First Temple represents the sole instance in the Hebrew Bible of this word being used to describe celestial beings.[3] “… I saw the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up; and His train filled the Hekhal (sanctuary). Above him stood the Seraphim; each had six wings; with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew.” (Isaiah 6:1–3) The seraphim cry continually to each other, “Holy, holy, holy, is YHWH of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory.” (verses 2-3) One seraph then carries out an act of purification for the prophet by touching his lips with a live coal from the altar (verses 6-7). The text uses the word “seraphim” but adds no adjectives or modifiers emphasising snakes (“nahash,” etc.). At the same time the description gives the creatures both human and avian attributes. A strong association with fire, though, is maintained.[4]
Seraphs appear in the 2nd century B.C. Book of Enoch[5] where they are designated as drakones (δράκονες “serpents”), and are mentioned, in conjunction with cherubs as the heavenly creatures standing nearest to the throne of God. In the late 1st century A.D. Book of Revelation (iv. 4-8) they are described as being forever in God’s presence and praising him: “Day and night with out ceasing they sing: ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come.’” They appear also in the Christian Gnostic text On the Origin of the World, described as “dragon-shaped angels”.[6]
[edit] In Judaism
The 12th century scholar Maimonides placed the seraphs in the fifth of ten ranks of angels in his exposition of the Jewish angelic hierarchy. They are part of the angelarchy of modern Orthodox Judaism. Isaiah’s vision is repeated several times in daily Jewish services, including at Kedushah prayer as part of the repetition of the Amidah, and in several other prayers as well. Conservative Judaism retains the traditional doctrines regarding angels and includes references to them in the liturgy, although a literal belief in angels is by no means universal among adherents. Adherents of Reform Judaism and Reconstructionist Judaism generally take images of angels as symbolic. Some adherents view them as part of the Merkabah.
[edit] In Christianity

Seraphs surround the divine throne in this illustration from the Petites Heures de Jean de Berry, a 14th-century illuminated manuscript, commissioned by John, Duke of Berry.
Medieval Christian theology places seraphs in the highest choir of the angelic hierarchy. They are the caretakers of God’s throne, continuously singing “holy, holy, holy”. Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite in his Celestial Hierarchy (vii), drew upon the Book of Isaiah in fixing the fiery nature of seraphim in the medieval imagination. Seraphs in his view helped the Deity maintain perfect order and are not limited to chanting the trisagion. Taking his cue as well from writings in the Rabbinic tradition, the author gave an etymology for the Seraphim as “those who kindle or make hot”:
“The name seraphim clearly indicates their ceaseless and eternal revolution about Divine Principles, their heat and keenness, the exuberance of their intense, perpetual, tireless activity, and their elevative and energetic assimilation of those below, kindling them and firing them to their own heat, and wholly purifying them by a burning and all-consuming flame; and by the unhidden, unquenchable, changeless, radiant and enlightening power, dispelling and destroying the shadows of darkness”[7]

The Israelites set out from Mount Hor, where Aaron was buried, to go to the Red Sea. However they had to detour around the land of Edom (Numbers 20:21, 25). Frustrated and impatient, they complained against Yahweh and Moses (Num. 21:4-5). and God sent “fiery serpents” among them. For the sake of repentant ones, Moses was instructed by God to build a “serpent of bronze” that was used to heal those who looked upon it (Numbers 21:4-9).
In source criticism by Martin Noth, the “bronze serpent” passage in Numbers 21:4-9, proceeds smoothly and is free of doublets, thus it does not appear to divide into different ‘sources’ even with the unusual juxtaposition of ‘God’ in v.5. The predominating use of the name Yahweh supposes that its appearance is original. In terms of the documentary hypothesis, the narrative can be allocated to the E source.[7]
[edit] Destruction
In 2 Kings 18:4, a bronze serpent was set up in the Jerusalem Temple sanctuary.[7] The Masoretic text says that “he [Hezekiah] called it Nehushtan”. According to Young’s Literal Translation, Nehushtan means “piece of brass” (2 Kings 18:4). Karen Randolph Joines makes the distinction that it was Hezekiah who discriminatingly called the image Nehushtan, rather than it being some common term used by the Israelites.[8] When Hezekiah had become King, he tore down the Nehushtan. It has been suggested that Hezekiah’s destruction of the Nehushtan was a result of the balance of power moving towards Assyria, which permitted him to remain on the throne of Judah as a puppet ruler. Hezekiah demonstrated his loyalty to the new regime by the destruction of an important symbol with Egyptian associations.[9]

The Brazen Serpent, by Benjamin West; among the overthrown, an unmistakable reference to the Laocoön
[edit] Significance in Christianity
As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life – (John 3:14-15)
The Serpent of bronze in Numbers 21 is a well known image for Christians because of its use by Jesus in the Gospel of John. Jesus discussed his destiny with a Jewish teacher named Nicodemus[10] by referencing a passage in Chukat of the Torah. Jesus gave a direct comparison between the raising up of the Son of Man and the act of the Mosaic serpent being raised up. Charles Spurgeon asserted that in this passage, Jesus was referring to his forthcoming crucifixion, and demonstrating the significance of the cross as spiritual healing from the curse of sin.[11]

Numbers 21:4-9; John 3:13-16 (NET)
21:4 Then they traveled from Mount Hor by the road to the Red Sea, to go around the land of Edom, but the people became impatient along the way. 21:5 And the people spoke against God and against Moses, “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness, for there is no bread or water, and we detest this worthless food.”
21:6 So the Lord sent poisonous snakes among the people, and they bit the people; many people of Israel died. 21:7 Then the people came to Moses and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you. Pray to the Lord that he would take away the snakes from us.” So Moses prayed for the people.
21:8 The Lord said to Moses, “Make a poisonous snake and set it on a pole. When anyone who is bitten looks at it, he will live.” 21:9 So Moses made a bronze snake and put it on a pole, so that if a snake had bitten someone, when he looked at the bronze snake he lived.

Fiery serpent m.n. (Hebrew: ‘שָׂרָף, Modern saraph Tiberian sä·räf’ ; “fiery”, “fiery serpent”, “seraph”, “seraphim”) occurs in the Torah, or Pentateuch, to describe a species of vicious snakes whose poison burns upon contact. According to Wilhelm Gesenius, saraph corresponds to the Sanskrit sarpa, serpent; sarpin, reptile (from the root srip, serpere).[10] These “burning serpents”(YLT) infested the great and terrible place of the desert wilderness (Num.21:4-9; Deut.8:15). The Hebrew word for “poisonous” literally means “fiery”, “flaming” or “burning”, as the burning sensation of a snake bite on human skin, a metaphor for the fiery anger of God (Numbers 11:1).[11]
The Book of Isaiah expounds on the description of these fiery serpents as “flying saraphs”(YLT), or flying dragons,[10] in the land of trouble and anguish (Isaiah 30:6). Isaiah indicates that these saraphs are comparable to vipers,(YLT) worse than ordinary serpents (Isaiah 14:29).[12] The prophet Isaiah also sees a vision of seraphim, in the Temple itself: but these are divine agents, with wings and human faces, and are probably not to be interpreted as serpent-like so much as flame-like.[4]
[edit] Serpent of bronze
Further information: Nehushtan
In the Book of Numbers, while Moses was in the wilderness, he mounted a serpent of bronze on a pole that functioned as a cure against the bite of the “seraphim”, the “burning ones” (Numbers 21:4-9). The phrase in Num.21:9, “a serpent of bronze,” is a wordplay as “serpent” (nehash) and “bronze” (nehoshet) are closely related in Hebrew, nehash nehoshet.[2]

Modern-critical scholars operating under the framework of the documentary hypothesis commonly ascribe the Binding’s narrative to the biblical source E, on the grounds that it generally uses God (אלוהים) for the deity, and also parallels characteristic E compositions. On that view, the second angelic appearance to Abraham (v. 14–18), praising his obedience and blessing his offspring, is in fact a later interpolation to E’s original account (v.1-13, 19). This is supported by the style and composition of these verses, as well as by the use of YHWH (יהוה) for the deity.[10] More recent studies question this analysis. It is argued that Abraham’s obedience to God’s command in fact necessitates praise and blessing, which he only receives in the second angelic speech.[11] That speech, therefore, could not have been simply interpolated into E’s original account. This has suggested to many that the author responsible for the interpolation of the second angelic appearance has left his mark also on the original account (v. 1-13-19).[10] More recently it has been suggested that these traces are in fact the first angelic appearance (v. 11–12), in which the Angel of YHWH stops Abraham before he kills Isaac.[12] The style and composition of these verses resemble that of the second angelic speech, and YHWH is used for the deity rather than God. On that reading, in the original E version of the Binding Abraham disobeys God’s command, sacrificing the ram “instead of his son” (v.13) on his own responsibility and without being stopped by an angel: “And Abraham stretched forth his hand, and took the knife to slay his son; but Abraham lifted up his eyes and looked and beheld, behind him was a ram, caught in a thicket by his horns; and Abraham went, and took the ram, and offered it up as a burnt offering instead of his son” (v. 10,13). By interpolating the first appearance of the angel, a later redactor shifted responsibility for halting the test from Abraham to the angel (v. 11–12); due to that shift of responsibility, the second angelic appearance, in which Abraham is rewarded for his obedience (v. 14–18), became necessary. This analysis of the story sheds light on the connection between the Binding and the story of Sodom (Genesis 18), in which Abraham protests against God’s unethical plan to destroy the city, without distinguishing between the righteous and the wicked: “Far be it from you to do such a thing.. Shall not the judge of all the earth do what is just?” Abraham’s ethical rebellion against God in Sodom culminates in his disobedience to God, refusing to sacrifice Isaac.[13]

In the book of Chronicles it is reported that the location of Araunah’s threshing floor is “in mount Moriah” and that the Temple of Solomon was built over Araunah’s threshing floor.[3] This has led to the classical rabbinical supposition that this is at the peak of Moriah.
Some interpretations of a biblical passage concerning Melchizedek would indicate Jerusalem was already a city with a priest at the time of Abraham, and thus is unlikely to have been founded after this, at the site of a sacrifice made by Abraham in the wilderness.[4] However the view that Salem refers to Jerusalem (then Jebus) and not peace (shalome, shelomo) is of heavy debate between many sects of Jews and Christians.Moria is now the birth place for the Zion Christian Church ( ZCC )

Berlin and Jerusalem have an interesting relationship. Ever since the 19th Century, when there was widespread sentiment that “Berlin is the New Jerusalem”, the cities been, in a sense, antipodal. We all know about the prescient words of the Meshekh Chokhma, and we know about the fortunes of the two cities since then.
I was reminded of their antipodality this week. Both Jerusalem and Berlin were divided cities for parts of the 20th century. Jerusalem between 1948 and 1967 and Berlin between 1961 and 1989 (in truth, it was divided for a longer period than that, but without a wall).
Yes, as the world celebrates the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall, it clamors for Jerusalem to be redivided. In fact, this partition of Jerusalem is championed by the same folks who wrote all those articles comparing the Separation Fence to the Berlin Wall.
Do an experiment: gauge the reaction of people to the statement “Berlin will never again be divided” with the statement “Jerusalem will never again be divided”.
Some might argue that Jerusalem is already divided de facto. That may be true, and I am certainly not arguing that the idea of partitioning Jerusalem should not be carefully considered. I AM, however, saying that there’s not a snowball’s chance in hell that Gilo will end up on the Palestinian side of the partition (look at a map of Jerusalem today and a map of Jerusalem in 1967; there’s no way that we’re going back there). And I AM saying that a partition of Jerusalem, in any form, would be tragic.

om 1886 to his death in 1913, Joaquin Miller resided on a hill in Oakland, in a home he called “The Hights” [sic]. He planted the surrounding trees and he personally built, on the eminence to the north, his own funeral pyre (not used) and monuments dedicated to Moses, explorer General John C. Frémont, and the poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The Japanese poet Yone Noguchi began his literary career while living in the cabin adjoining Millers’ during the latter half of the 1890s.

Then the Tabernacle was taken down, and the Gershonite and Merarite divisions of the Levites were next in the line of march, carrying the Tabernacle with them.

13″ x 8.75″ sight, 18.5″ x 13.5″ mat.
About the Painting: Very good condition. Laid down on board. Linen mat is fraying around the edges, but could be used with a new frame.

About the Artist: Following his own muse, and avoiding the influence of the twentieth century avant-garde, Teixeira remains among the most accomplished of draftsmen. Raised in Amsterdam, his early work, including views of Amsterdam, portraits of family members and drawings of animals from the Amsterdam Zoo, reflect his sensitivity.

The artist used a great variety of drawing materials: pencil, pen and ink, pastel, even watercolor. His favored material however, was the black crayon. In this he was influenced by the Hague School, a nineteenth century group of Dutch Realists. With them, Teixeira de Mattos shared a fascination for nature. But in his treatment of light and shadow, he remained faithful to the seventeenth century Dutch masters of painting.

In 1938, Teixeira moved to Paris. The city with its busy streets became important subject matter. When war broke out, he moved to the French countryside. With a deliberate disregard for the momentous events everywhere about him, he drew animals, farms and flowers.

From 1953 onwards he travelled each year to Spain. There he enjoyed the light and climate, drawing cityscapes of favored places: Madrid, Burgos and San Sebastian. He continued his work in Spain and France until his death in 1971.

Several years ago I was offered land in South Carolina that was owned by the Rosamond family, and the De Mattos Mendes Da Costa family. Issac da Costa was a co-founder, if not the founder of Scottish Rite Freemasony. His kin, Josef de Mattos offered me an acre of land after he purchased sixty acres on Plantation Point – after he read my blog about the “Jews Land” in South Carolina where the Rosamond and Witherspoon family have lived for generations. The Hesketh Revelstoke union with the Witherspoons is profound.
There is a Withersppon Clan, and the Sinclair Clan speak of Issac da Costa in the same breath with the Stuart Kings of Scotland which I have shown are kin to the Witherspoons throught the Preston family. I was Dottie Witherspoons Guardian Angel, and if she had not left me for the Jesus Freaks, we may have gotten married and had children. As fate would have my sister, Christine Rosamond Benton, married into this Royal Stewart Linage.
I wrote the following on April 20, 2008
Van Gough and the Promised Land
http://rougeknights.blogspot.com/
(Images: ‘By the River of Babylon’ Gloug. ‘The Expulsion of the Jews
from Spain’ painted in 1889 by Emilio Sala Frances, Museo de Bellas
Artes de Granada. A representative of the Jews pleads for the
reversal of the decree of expulsion of 1492. The figure in the
foreground is either Don Isaac Abravanel or Don Abraham Senior. The
figure gesturing behind the table must be Torquemada; presumably this
is the point at which Torquemada said that accepting Jewish gold
would be like Judas accepting the 30 pieces of silver.)
This morning I discovered that Vincent Van Gough took algebra lessons
from Teixeira de Mattos, the cousin of Doctor Mendes a Costa, who
also tutored Van Gough. Before this revelation, I discovered that
Benjamin Judah, the Jewish Secretary of State for the Confederacy,
descends form the Sephardic Jews who owned slaves in the West Indies.
His parents were, Philip Benjamin, and Rebecca de Mendes. Benjamin
owned 147 slaves. Is it possible that Rebecca de Mendes is a close
kin of Rebecca Mendes da Costa who was a party of the land deal made
with Joseph Salvador. Of course she is!
“On Nov. 27, 1755, General Hamilton sold to Joseph Salvador 100,000
acres of land, situated near Fort Ninety-six, for £2,000. Twenty
years later Joseph Salvador sold to thirteen London Sephardic Jews
60,000 acres of land for £3,000, and transferred 20,000 acres of the
remainder to Rebecca Mendes da Costa, in settlement of a claim which
she had upon him. This land was known as the “Jews’ lands.” Prior to
this, Salvador’s nephew Francis had arrived at Charleston (Dec.,
1773), and purchased a great deal of landed property in the same
neighborhood, some of it from his uncle and father-in-law. A Jew from
London, Moses Lindo, was one of the chief instruments in increasing
the indigo manufacture of the state.”
The Passover is the celebration of the Jews coming home to the
Promised Land. Did the Sephardic Jews believe they had come to the
New Promised Land when they came to America with Ponce De Leon?
Surely they abandoned the idea of returning to Zion, because they
founded Reform Judaism. Did these Jews in exile believe the land they
purchased was just as blessed as the land of Zion? In regards to
Israel, the Talmud says Zion is blessed, and merely walking on it can
gain you a place in the Afterlife. Did you know the Jews believed in
a Afterlife?
“The Talmud indicates that the land itself is so holy that merely
walking in it can gain you a place in the World to Come. Prayers for
a return to Israel and Jerusalem are included in daily prayers as
well as many holiday observances and special events.”
The correspondence between the Van Gough brothers are profound
documents, full of Brotherly Love. Benjamin Judah used his big brain
to pit brother against brother in a brutal war that killed 620,000. I
will put forth a case suggesting the Dutch, the French, and the
Sephardic Jews instigated the Revolutionary War in order to keep
Britain out of their Slave Trade in the West India and America. The
Puritans had already fled England to Holland, and thus they had a
more religious motive?

Sephardic Jews and Slave Trade

I have seen the future!

Mediterranean slave trade

The Jews of Algiers were frequent purchasers of Christian slaves from Barbary corsairs.[108] Meanwhile, Jewish brokers in Livorno, Italy, were instrumental in arranging the ransom of Christian slaves from Algiers to their home countries and freedom. Although one slave accused Livorno’s Jewish brokers of holding the ransom until the captives died, this allegation is uncorroborated, and other reports indicate Jews as being very active in assisting the release of English Christian captives.[109] In 1637, an exceptionally poor year for ransoming captives, the few slaves freed were ransomed largely by Jewish factors in Algiers working with Henry Draper.[110]

Atlantic slave trade

Triangular slave trade.

The Atlantic slave trade transferred African slaves from Africa to colonies in the New World. Much of the slave trade followed a triangular route: slaves were transported from Africa to the Caribbean, sugar from there to North America or Europe, and manufactured goods from there to Africa. Jews and descendants of Jews participated in the slave trade on both sides of the Atlantic, in the Netherlands, Spain, and Portugal on the eastern side, and in Brazil, Caribbean, and North America on the west side.[111]

After Spain and Portugal expelled many of their Jewish residents in the 1490s, many Jews from Spain and Portugal migrated to the Americas and to the Netherlands.[112] Jewish participation in the Atlantic slave trade increased through the 17th century because Spain and Portugal maintained a dominant role in the Atlantic trade and peaked in the early 18th century, but started to decline after the Peace of Utrecht in 1713 when Britain obtained the right to sell slaves in Spanish colonies, and Britain and France started to compete with Spain and Portugal.[113] By the time the worldwide slave trade and European sugar-growing reached its peak in the 18th century, Jewish participation was dwarfed by the enterprise of British and French planters who did not allow Jews among their number. During the 19th century, some Jews owned some cotton plantations in the southern United States.[112]

Reform Judaism Born in Charleston

emanuel3 emanuel4 emanuel5 emanuelc2

Five blocks from the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, is the Beth Elohim synagogue where Reform Judaism was born. RF took an oath that put the Return to Zion, in their past. The quest of their ancestors, was not their quest. These Sephardic Jews declared America their new ‘Land of Milk and Honey’ that God led them to. They wanted to resemble fellow Americans, thus they altered the orthodox way of worship. However, when organ music was introduced there was a schism and the formation of another Reform synagogue. What now united these two groups, was, they went down to the docks to look over the new arrival of kidnapped slaves. Perhaps they can get a deal.

There is a debate about how involved the Sephardic Jews were in the Slave Trade. They had cornered the indigo market. These slaves and their grandchildren filled the pews  of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. These Africans also wanted to be like their fellow Americans, thus, they changed their ways.

Was it a year ago that worshippers were attacked and killed in a synagogue in Jerusalem?

“Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert went on a rambling tangent Thursday in Congress that started with his disagreement with the Trans-Pacific Partnership and spiraled into what was almost a sermon denouncing gay marriage.

Gohmert believes the United States was founded as and meant to be a Christian nation and that the laws of Moses and Jesus trump the Supreme Court. The Court is set to issue a ruling on gay marriage later this month.”

To years ago I was not invited to the memorial of my good friend, Jon Gall. His mother had become a Christian, and, Jon had friends in Israel who conducted a dual-citizenship ceremony where Jon’s Jewish spirit was returned to Zion. Jonny was an atheist. His parents and I are no longer friends. Dual-citizenship ideas, must die! Ancestor and Antique Worship will not defeat ISIS, the new Slave Masters that are destroying many antigue, and driving very ancient peoples from their very ancient homes. It is time we unite under ONE BANNER. What does that banner look like?

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/19/world/middleeast/killings-in-jerusalem-synagogue-complex.html?_r=0

The gruesome slaying of five Israelis at a synagogue early Tuesday left many residents of this city fearing that the worst is still to come, as Jerusalem descends deeper into a cycle of terror attacks and violent protest over its religious sites.

Many Israelis were especially stunned by the sense of violation created by the attack, in which two Palestinians armed with cleavers and a gun stormed a synagogue in an Orthodox Jewish neighborhood of West Jerusalem and killed four rabbis: a Briton and three Americans, including a member of two of Orthodox Judaism’s most prominent families.

There are Crusader graves at the Golden Gate of the Temple in Jerusalem. I suspect my Rougemont ancestors are here – awaiting the Messiah?
King Solomon used this gate after allowing the Shekinah ‘The Light of God’ to enter and dwell wihtin. Where is that Light this day?

It is high noon. It is time to put away the dark dream of Slavery, and bury all its evil symbols – all over the world! It is time to forgive debts, and honor the poor, the widow, and the disenfranchised!

The Promised Land

“For his first birthday I promised my Grandson, Tyler Hunt, a kingdom. American
Democracy has awoken from the demonic spell put upon it. Let the celebration
begin!”
On June 8, 2012, I got a call from a stranger, Samuel Josefa de Mattos, a
descendant of a famous Sephardic Jewish family. He said he had come across my
study on Rougeknights and said; “You appear to know more about my family then I
do.”

We talked about his ancestor, Francis Salvador who was killed by Indians. Samuel
said his kinfolk left the “Jews land” around the small town of Hodges due to the
hostile natives. The Rosamond family may have done the same, they moving to
Mississippi leaving their plantations behind. Did the de Mattos and the Rosmonds
know one another?

Samuel then informed me he had purchased sixty one acres near Plantation Point
that runs to the shore of Greenwood Lake. He had read about the “Jews land” the
Hodge family has once owned. He deliberately bought this land so it can be owned
by descendants of King David once again. I told Samuel about Samuel and James
Rosamond who fought under Francis Marion in the Revolutionary War. I asked for
permission to take my daughter and grandson to this land against owned by a
family whose genealogy is found in the Bible. Samuel replied;

“Jon, not only do you have my permission, but I am going to give you an acre of
this land!”

I felt faint. I could not believe what Samuel offered me, for it is the end of
my prophetic book, where I promise my grandson a kingdom, where I compare my
rosy story to the Sleeping Beauty Princess, named Rosamond. Here is the Return
of The King, in the Red Branch Knight prophecy to the Promised Land.
Here is what my great, great grandfather, James Rosamond says in his will;
To my three sons, Thomas, Benjamin, and Samuel, I leave the rest of my land; to
be divided equally amongst them and to be given to them as they come of age. I
allow my wife to have use of it while she lives, the tract of land that I now
live on. On her death, this land will be equally divided between Thomas,
Benjamin and Samuel.

That my acre will be next door to a descendant of King David whose kingdom the
Zionist Christians and Jews are trying to restore in Israel, is profound! In the
Peerage we read; Esther Montefiore is the daughter of Samuel Montefiore and
Grace de Mattos Mocatta.1 She married Judah Guedalla. This is the family of
Moses Montefiore whom Joaquin Miller built a pyramid monument to, suggesting he
was a moder day Moses! The new address of the New Promised Land is 339 Middleton
Road on the land known as Plantation Point. Was the Rosamond plantation located
here?
I blessed Samuel and his family and when we said goodbye he called me “Brother”.
I then -emailed my good friend Mark Gall, whose Jewish mother always had a
reserved seat for me at her table at the resthome, and she only asked for me to
take her to the Synagogue. She saw something in my eyes when we first met.

“It is a matter of a constitutional crisis when the Highest Court in the land not merely strikes down and says that their opinion is more important than Moses’, depicted up there in the center point of this room, more important than Moses’, depicted in the marble wall over the Supreme Court, holding the Ten Commandments,” the congressman said on the House floor.

“The Supreme Court says theirs is more important than the opinions established and stated by Jesus Christ when he said–and he was quoting Moses–that a man shall leave his mother and father, a woman leave her home, and the two will come together and be one flesh, and what God has joined together, let no man put asunder.”

He expressed paranoia that non-Christians were going to “take over the country.”

“The great thing is that, if a nation is established on Judeo-Christian beliefs, it allows anybody to live here and to function here and to do so without impediment to one’s beliefs because one can be an atheist, an agnostic, a Buddhist, a Muslim, Gohmert said, according to a transcript of his speech. “You can be any of those things, as long as you are not trying to take over the country like some would like to do.”

He said he isn’t “prejudiced,” citing his grief at the news of the terrorist attack in Charleston that took the lives of nine Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church members Wednesday.

“We are brothers and sisters in Christ. Skin color does not matter one bit. He killed my brothers and sisters,” he said.

He rambled that “nature makes it very clear” that even though children can be adopted and some great Americans came from orphanages or single parent homes, “the optimum is a mother and a father in a home.”

While calling supporters of marriage equality intolerant of differing views, Gohmert later said justices that vote against his own should be impeached.

“I know there are some who are involved in same-sex marriage. They are not able to love as I do. They hate anybody that disagrees with them,” he said.

A little later he stated, “It is probably sufficient grounds for impeachment for a Supreme Court Justice to violate the law so that they can force their will upon the American people to push through their legislative agenda even though they are not legislators. Probably impeachment would be in order. If they break the law in order to change dramatically the law, they shouldn’t be on the Supreme Court.”

Earlier this month, Gohmert took to the House floor to accuse President Obama of aiding and abetting terrorists.”

Francis Salvador (1747 – August 1, 1776) was a young English plantation owner in the colony of South Carolina from the Sephardic Jewish community of London; in 1774 he was the first Jew to be elected to public office in the colonies when chosen for the Provincial Congress. He had joined the independence cause and in 1776 was the first Jew killed in the American Revolutionary War, fighting with the militia on the South Carolina frontier against Loyalists and their Cherokee allies.[1]

Francis Salvador was born to Jacob Salvador and his wife in London ,[2] where a Spanish and Portuguese Jewish (Sephardic) community had developed since the 17th century. His uncle, Joseph Salvador, was a prominent businessman, the only Jewish director of the British East India Company. His grandfather Francis Salvador was the boy’s namesake. Francis’ father died when he was two, and his younger brother Moses was born soon after.[2]

The boys were tutored privately and raised in wealth. When the sons came of age, they each inherited ₤60,000.[2] Salvador became active with his uncle Joseph and the wealthy DaCosta family of London in plans to settle poor Jews and their family members in the New World.

Francis Salvador married Sarah Salvador, his first cousin and Joseph’s second daughter. Her father gave her a ₤13,000 dowry.[2] They had a son, John Lovel Salvador, and three daughters before the senior Salvador emigrated in late 1773 to South Carolina.[2]

Emigration to North America[edit]

In 1733 the London Sephardic community sent 42 Jews to Savannah with the first English settlers in present-day Georgia. When Spain attacked Georgia in 1740, most of the Jewish families fled north to Charleston, fearing the Spanish Inquisition might be imposed in Georgia. In the 1730s Sephardic Jews from London began emigrating to Charleston as a preferred destination. They were later joined by Jews from Germany, the Netherlands and the West Indies.

The Salvador and DaCosta families in London bought 200,000 acres (810 km2) in the new district of Ninety-Six (known as “Jews Land”) in the western frontier of the Carolina colony. They began to settle it.[3] The Salvador family was financially ruined by the Lisbon earthquake of 1755, as they still held properties there, and subsequent failure of the East India Company, in which they had interests. They retained their land in South Carolina and little other wealth.[4]

Representative to the Provincial Congress[edit]

Francis Salvador acquired 7,000 acres (28 km2) in Ninety Six District, Carolina Colony, and emigrated intending to send for his wife, Sarah, and their four children as soon as he was able. Arriving in Charleston in December 1773, Salvador quickly joined the American cause. He became close friends with the rising leaders of the Revolution in the South, including Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, John Rutledge, William Henry Drayton, Henry Laurens, and Samuel Hammond.[5]

Buying African slaves to work his land, In 1774 Salvador settled at Coroneka (commonly called Cornacre), joined for a while by his friend Richard A. Rapley, as neither wanted to live alone.[2] They were both elected as delegates to South Carolina’s Provincial Congress; Salvador was the first Jew elected to public office in the Thirteen Colonies in North America.[1] He was re-elected to the second Provincial Congress in 1775, holding the post until his death.[4] At the time, Jews legally could neither hold office nor vote, but no colonists objected when Salvador and his friend Richard A. Rapley were elected as two among the several frontier representatives from Ninety-Six District to the Provincial Congress.[6] They were joined by Andrew Williamson, then a major in the militia.

When the Provincial Congress first met in Charleston in January 1775, Salvador was chosen for important committee assignments: drawing up the declaration of the purpose of the congress to the people; obtaining ammunition; assessing the safety of the frontier, and working on the new state constitution.[7] The group also framed a bill of rights and composed an address to South Carolina’s royal governor, setting forth the colonists’ complaints against the Crown. Salvador was appointed to a commission that tried to convince the Tories in the northern and western parts of the colony to join the American cause.

The second Provincial Congress assembled in November 1775. Salvador was one of the champions for independence; he urged his fellow delegates to instruct the colony’s delegation to the Continental Congress to cast their vote for independence. Salvador chaired the Ways and Means Committee of this second Provincial Congress, at the same time serving on a select committee authorized to issue bills of credit as payment to members of the militia. He was also selected for a commission to preserve the peace in the interior parts of South Carolina.[8]

Fighting in the American Revolution[edit]

Early in 1776 the British had induced Indian allies to attack the South Carolina frontier to create a diversion in favor of British operations on the sea-coast. On July 1, 1776, the Indians began attacking frontier families in Ninety Six District. Salvador rode from his lands to the White Hall plantation of Major Andrew Williamson, 28 miles (45 km) away, to raise the alarm. Salvador took part in the engagements that followed. On July 31, Major Williamson captured two white Loyalists. They led his 330-men militia into an ambush by their fellow Tories and Cherokee allies at the Keowee River.[9] Alexander Cameron, deputy to Captain John Stuart, led the Tory forces.[10] Salvador was shot and fell into the bushes, but was discovered and scalped by the Cherokee that night. He died from his wounds at age 29.

Concerning his death, Colonel William Thomson wrote to William Henry Drayton, in a letter dated “Camp, two miles below Keowee[a Cherokee town], August 4th, 1776, as follows:

“Here, Mr. Salvador received three wounds; and, fell by my side. . . . I desired [Lieutenant Farar], to take care of Mr. Salvador; but, before he could find him in the dark, the enemy unfortunately got his scalp: which, was the only one taken. . . . He died, about half after two o’clock in the morning: forty-five minutes after he received the wounds, sensible to the last. When I came up to him, after dislodging the enemy, and speaking to him, he asked, whether I had beat the enemy? I told him yes. He said he was glad of it, and shook me by the hand – and bade me farewell – and said, he would die in a few minutes.”[11]

A patriot journal, The Rememerance, wrote of Salvador: “he was universally loved and esteemed.”[5][12]

Salvador became caught up in the Revolution before he could bring his family to the colony. His wife and children stayed in London, aided by his estate and their families.[2]

Interestingly, a handful of these businesses were run by women who had been given “sole trader” status by their husbands.  Under coverture laws, married women were the legal property of their husband, although they could be granted independent economic status by their husband through a legal document.  The historian James Hagy found 48 Jewish women who were classified as “sole traders” between 1766 and 1827.  Many helped run their husband’s business when he was away.  Other times, women took over the family business from her husband when it was not doing well.  Rebecca De Mendes Benjamin, the mother of future Confederate leader Judah P. Benjamin, was given sole trader status by her husband when his dry goods store was in dire financial straits.  Rebecca took over the business.  Later, she owned a store in Beaufort while her husband remained in Charleston.  In a few instances, these women were able to pass their businesses down to their children.  Hannah Hyams owned a dry goods store on King Street in the first decade of the 19th century; she later transferred the business to Judith Hyams, who was either her daughter or daughter-in-law.

Indeed, South Carolina’s 1790 constitution guaranteed religious liberty in the state and gave Jewish men the right to vote and hold office.  Abraham Mendes Seixas served as a city magistrate after the Revolution.  Charleston Jews reveled in their freedoms.  In 1806, they wrote to London’s Sephardic synagogue looking for a new hazzan to lead services.  In the letter, the congregation described life in the early republic for Jews, “in a free and independent country like America…, where in short we enjoy all the blessings of freedom in common with our fellow citizens, you may readily conceive we pride ourselves under the happy situation which makes us feel we are men.”

Although Charleston Jews were bitterly divided over how best to worship God, they were unified on the issue of the country’s growing sectional conflict.  Charleston Jews had become well integrated in the city’s economic, political, and social life.  Jacob De La Motta, an active leader of Beth Elohim, was a physician who was elected as secretary of the local medical society in 1824.  Abraham Moise was a lawyer who served as a local magistrate from 1842 to 1859.  Lyon Levy was state treasurer.  A number of Charleston Jews served in the state legislature and as city aldermen.  Jews were involved in local benevolent societies and did not seem to suffer any social exclusion.

Jews acted much like other white Charlestonians, including owning slaves.  Jewish auctioneers like Abraham Mendes Seixas sold slaves along with other commodities.  According to one study, 83% of Jewish households in Charleston owned at least one slave; this figure was slightly lower than the 87% of all white households in the city that owned slaves.  Most of the slaves owned by Jews in Charleston were house servants.  A handful of successful Jewish merchants in Charleston bought relatively small slave plantations in the western part of the state, but most lived in the port city as was the general practice for South Carolina’s planter elite.  Mordecai Cohen owned 27 slaves who worked on his rice plantation.  Becoming a slave-owning planter was a way to ascend the social ladder in Charleston, although it often became a significant financial drain for Jews.  Although there is little evidence that Jewish slave owners tried to convert their slaves to Judaism, Beth Elohim’s constitution had a provision that banned black converts from membership.  Charleston Jews thoroughly accepted the South’s defense of slavery.  Jacob Nunez Cardozo was a local newspaper editor who was a staunch supporter of the South’s cause and slavery.

On June 7th. I ran into my Jewish friend Ron Freedman. It turned out we knew
Alix whose father is Russian Jews and a neighbor of Mark. These are math
wizards. Mark was the head of the Department of Education at the University of
Oregon.

Here is the proof that God is speaking through me as I have alleged. This is not
my will, but His will. That God has sent another Prophet, is more important then
The Land, for without God, The Land is worthless. This is God’s Message to you!
“These graves are right along a paved road in the woods (I mean, the stones are
right along the road). This cemetery is in bad shape. No one is taking care of
it. It is over grown in weeds, trees and with poison oak and ivy everywhere.
David, Mark and I ventured out into the cemetery a little ways. Couldn’t go to
each stone because the poison oak & ivy is soooo thick. There aren’t many
stones. Some graves are marked with field stones and doesn’t have any writing on
them, and some of the field stones looked as those they had been chiseled on but
you couldn’t read it. ”

My Dear Friend, Mark; Tuesday, June 8, 2010 4:52 PM

You may never recieve a more inporant e-mail, or letter, then this one. This is
historic and Biblical. Two hours a gentleman called me from South Carilona. He
was looking at the genealogy of his ancient family on my Rougeknight blog. He
told me I am a real scholar, that appears to know more about his family then he
does. His name is Samuel de Mattos. He descends from Sephardic Jews who are kin
to King David. His ancestor, Francis Salvadore found in the Revolutionary War,
and founded Reform Judaism where the return to Zion is abandoned. Francis
declared South Carolina the “land of milk and honey” that God has led His Chosen
People to. His kin taught Vincent Van Gough.

.html

Yesterday, Samuel bought sixty acres of land that my Rosamond and Hodges kin
called the “Jews land”. It was sold to the Hodge family by his kinfolk. This
acreage is near the town of Hodge. Samuel PROMISED me an acre of thos LAND so my
offspring will forever have a place to go. Mark, this is the Grail and the end
of my Quest, and the end of my Story, that will be a best seller. This is the
REAL DEAL. You will be in my story.

This RETURN of the Jews to their ancestral homes in Europe – and America – will
not happen over night, or by force! The Zionist Experiment with a Secular Nation
– is at an end! The True Zion is in South Carolina as I have stated many time in
my blog, and in e-mails to you. Being a Jew will consist of being a Child of God
without borders – once again. However, you can go on Pilgrimage to the “Jew’s
land” that Samuel said he will keep pristine. Just the deer and other wildlife
will dwell here by Greenwood Lake. I made the same promise.

I will foreward my e-mail to Samuel.

Your friend

Jon
Mark;

I ran into an old freind down by the river, Ron Freeman. He dated Marilyn. We
talked aobut seeing more of each other, and I questioned him about a mutual
activity. I asked him if he fished. He said no, but mentioned a young man who
needs to go fishing. I asked Ron what his name was, getting a clue.

“Alix,” Ron answered.

Ron is friend with your neighbors. Let us get together for Bar-B-Q at your house
where we can discuss some porjects for Alix during the summer. I mentioned model
boat making and sailing them in Alton Baker Park.

Who sees the future

http://www.growthingod.org.uk/jubilee.htm

http://www.cynet.com/jesus/PROPHECY/jubilee.htm

It looks like Jesus restored the Jubilee, but, Jesus did not come to liberate
and save Jews, he came for the Pagans. It must have been John the Baptist, a
devout Jew, who restored the Jubilee Law after is was done away with by the
Sanhedrin a hundred years before he was born. John freed indentured slaves and
returned their ancestral land to them. The War with Rome began when the Jews
began to burn the debt archives.

I wondered if the Rosamond family will be restored to their lands?

One week ago I awoke and heard my Angel. She told me I had found the Shekinah. I
wondered if she was saying I was very close to finding the Light of God. This
was not the case. I had arrived.

“You have found me.”

My heart beating, I went to my computer and picked up the thread of my study
where I had left off. I was looking at the “Jews Land” and the coat of arms of
Doctor Mendes de Costa whose family lived on St. Eustatius. Regrettably they
were heavily involved in the slave trade. I suspect they made the blue glass
beads that Ponce de Leon used to entice Native Americans into making bad deals,
as well as enslaving them. Noble Jews expelled from Granada accompanied de Leon
in his voyage. I believe the Lion in de Costa’s coat of arms represents the
kingdom of Leon. The fleur de leaves I suspect represents Burgundy as you will
later see.

“What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor.”

David da Costa owned seven white servants. He bought three of them who were
felons. They were Christians. My ancestor John `The Highwayman’ Rosamond was a
felon sent from England to America and purchased by an un-known person in
Delaware. That the Rosamond family later bought land owned by the da Costa
family suggests the term of the indentured servitude had exspired, and having
served alongside the Jewish hero, Francis Salvador, perhaps the Rosamond family
was being honored and rewarded. Were they given a good deal on this land?

Abbeville – Ancestral Home of the Rosamond FamilyHere is a live-cam of downtown
Abbeville where my Rosamond ancestors used to walk.http://68.115.199.210/The
Walnut Grove Baptist Church is found at the center of the map above. The
Rosamonds were nextdoor neighbors of Francis Salvador who led a Sephardic Exodus
to a city founded by a Huguenot who made an Exodus from France.In the last two
days I found what I have been searching for for twenty years. I found a Jewish
Mayflower and a bloodline that descends from King David. This land was a
Promised Land. It was also the birth and death place of the Confederacy. I have
a book to write, and a kingdom to awaken.

I say, no Jew will go the World to Come until they publicly disown the
Evangelicals and their politicians, then apologize and make amends for their
part in promoting slavery in the New World. The Jews of the World are caught in
a evil duality. It is my hope to free them from this duality, this un-holy
ADVISARY, which is the meaning of the name, Satan.On the Nunez family crest you
find three fleurs-de-lis that are also found on the crest of Doctor Mendes da
Costa. I have traced his lineage to Narbonne France where for a little while a
Judaic Kingdom existed. That my ancestors purchased land from a relative of King
David, is profound, for I have compared my genealogical quest to the awakening
of Sleeping Beauties Kingdom.Van Gough has long been my favorite artist – and
religious person. His failed quest to be a Man of God, is a immortal tale. After
my death, I tried to paint again, but, I had a transcendence. I had overcome
Illusions and Duality and sought to translate the Beautiful Majesty of the
Heavenly Creation, as a Man of God. In 1989 I immersed myself in a river and
declared in writing I was a Nazarite. This is to say, I had converted to
Judaism.I endrose Obama for President of the United States.Jon

The Sephardic Jews Owned European SlavesThe Sephardic Jews of South Carolina
bought European convicts and put them to work alongside the black slaves they
owned. There is a good chance that John ‘The Highwayman’ Rosamond was owned by a
descendant of King David.The ancestor of the da Costa family, whom the Hodges
family bought their land from, was a victim of the Inquistion. Manuel da Costa
was accused of saying Jesus was not the true Messiah, and the real Messiah had
not come. I have proven this was not the case. However the anti-slavery mission
of Jesus the Messiah – was buried alive with the help of Jewish quisling like
Joseph Flavius, who took the name of his Roman slaver-master, Emperor Vespasian
Flavius. Did wealthy Jews like Joseph sell fellow Jews to Romans?One Sephardic
Plantation owner made his home his Synagogue. Was this the inspiration for other
plantation houses built in a Romanesque style?Jon Presco”Lisbon awoke one
sixteenth century morning to find many church doors plastered with placards
blaring out a blasphemous message:”The Messiah has not yet come. Jesus is not
the true Messiah.”A Maranno, Manuel da Costa, was accused of the heinous act. He
was arrested, tortured cruelly until he confessed his guilt. Then, with the
sophisticated methods developed over a century of producing excruciating
torture, Manuel was slowly and methodically agonized to death1.
The da Costas were among the Jews who fled from Spain into Portugal, and from
both Spain and Portugal into the Diaspora. The provenance of the da Costa family
is evident from the addition of “de León” to the surname of Abram da Costa de
León. Abram was instrumental in lifting the ban against Jewish residence in
Genoa in 1659, and for arranging for a group of Jews from Tuscany to settle in
Genoa.2

Joseph D’Acosta came to New Amsterdam in 1655. He was a leading merchant in
Amsterdam and was a principal shareholder of the slave-dealing Dutch West India
Company.On April 9th. I posted on the Sinclair Sleeping Beauty who I have longed
compared to the Shekinah.

On April 5th. I reposted my post on moving the Axis Mundi and the Shekinah to
Santa Rosa island. When I made these posts I said I was following the
instructions of my angel who speaks to me with a female voice. Is she the Queen
of Heaven, the Shekinah? Then there are my posts calling for a Exodus from
Israel to Texas to form a New Zion. Of course I wondered if I was mad when I
made these posts.

What has risen from the ground where my Rosamond ancestors are buried in South
Carolina was the Lost Truth, being, the Sephardic Jews had founded a New Zion in
America. And after doing this they founded Reformed Judaism. The Sephardic
rabbis of Charleston taught that the Jews had ceased to be in exile, and there
was no cause to feel they were in a strange land. The Reform Jews in South
Carolina taught their children that to prey for a return to a Jewish homeland,
was incompatible with the desire to be a citizen of a nation outside Zion, and
this would create a dual loyalty. They were Anti-Zionists until 1947, when the
secular nation of Israel were founded by the Jewish Freethinkers of Europe.
Today, in America, many Jews struggle with the notion they own dual citizenship,
and thus, divided loyalties.The Reformed Jews taught their children that the
dispersion was a necessary experience, and the temple in Jerusalem should never
be rebuilt. Instead the Jews would spread all over the world a Messianic truth
and morality. This is contrary to the teaching of the evangelical leaders who
prey the Jews go to war with their old enemies and rebuild the temple. Only when
they do this, will God take this temple from the Jews and give it to the
evangelical Christians so it can be used like a lifeboat, taking them up to
heaven to escaped the Great Tribulation. To this end the evangelicals claim they
are doing the will of God. They have ran for, and hold many offices in our
Government claiming they are upholding traditional American moral and religious
values. But, this is far from the truth.

And still he went farther, and all was so quiet that he could hear his own
breathing, and at last he came to the tower, and went up the winding stair, and
opened the door of the little room where Rosamond lay. ”

For twenty years I had been studying the Bible, and took note what the wrong
people did to the Suffering of Jesus, the Scapegoat and Redeemer. I saw right
through the cloaks of invisibility worn by the Pretenders and Predators that
came to feed off Christine’s suffering, and her Death, they about the business
of Transferring my family history over to themselves, and then using our
misfortune and abuse as their eternal money-making slave!

I have come to take my dear sister Christine down from their evil cross!Here are
the main goals of the Go’el, the Redeemer1. Repurchase a filed which was sold in
a time of need. Buy back tht which had fallen into debt. Lev.25:482. Free an
Israelite slave who sold him/herself in time of poverty Lev. 25:483. Avenge the
blood for the murder of a close relative

Around 5:15 this morning I awoke to hear my Angel bidding me to rise, go to my
computer, and publicly condemn John Hagee as a False Teacher, Traitor, and
Terrorist, then Excommunicate him from the Protestant church.I tried to go back
to sleep, but it was too late, for `The Argument’ had began, which begins
with;”Who am I to do such a thing? What authority and power do I have? I am one
man, they are many”

I rolled over and tried to go back to sleep, but I started thinking about Pope
Adrien, the good friend of my ancestor, Godschalk Rosemondt. Why were Adrien’s
papal papers disappeared? Was he leaning towards the Reformation after
conculting with Rosemondt who was corresponding with Erasmus? What became of
Rosemondt’s papers? Surely he must have pondered over the reason Adrien was
anointed Pope. Was it because of the very large membership in the Swan Brethren,
as high as hundred thousands members all over Europe. Were many Swan Brethren
being trained as theolgins at Louvain college?
I looked forlornly at my clock and got out of bed. I rose as a Nazarite Judge of
Israel. I had taken the vow of the Nazarite in 1990. I immersed myself in the
McKenzie river in Oregon. There was not a soul around. But on my way back to my
campsite in the forest wilderness, here came my kin Michael and his three sons.
They had spotted my car in the campground. Michael gave me the Bible that
changed the course of my life. The timing of this is inexplicable.

Dan Brown, Margaret Starbird, Laurence Gardner and others, claim the ‘Sleeping
Beauty’ legend is a Grail Quest for a Holy and Rosy Bloodline. Princess Rosamond
is associated with the Priory de Sion, Rennes Chateau, the Serepent Rouge, the
Sacred Feminine, and Fair Rosamond who dwelt in a Labyrinth and was discovered
by the clue of a rouge thead, and thus is associated with Ariadne.Is it just a
coincidence that my sister, Christine Rosamond Presco, her mother, Rosemary
Rosamond, and her mother Mary Magdalene Rosamond, loved to sew? After I located
the unmarked grave of my grandfather, Royal Rosamond, and placed a marker there
of two roses, did the existance of my sixteen year old daughter become known to
me – for sure. Have I cut through the roses and thorns and awakened a sleeping
kingdom of rosy weavers, or, has a troupe of Grail Writers found their way into
my Rosy Family Labyrinth and found the kingdom protected by roses – and the
needles of the rose?

Democracy has awoken from the demonic spell put upon it. Let the celebration

Jews Owned Slaves

The Jews have condoned slavery for a long time. I saw the urgency to deal with this fact.

Netanyahu Must Apologize For Slavery

slavery3 slavery4 slavery5 slavery6rickperr2 rickperry rick-perry-ISRAELnnnbentonjBEN23BEN24

As heir to the Traditional Republican Family Values, and as a True Nazarite Prophet, I insist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fly Rabbi Marvin Hier to Washington and lead him thru a religious observation, where Benjamin prostrate himself before the Congressional podium, and beg God’s forgiveness for the Jews involvement in slavery, for being armed traitors for the Confederacy, and for conspiring with neo-Confederate Evangelical End Time Crazies to overthrow our Democracy and install a kingdom.

With the return of slavery to the Levant by ISIS Religious Savages, it is imperative that Israel take a strong stance against slavery. Indeed, I insist Israel, who owns any nuclear weapons, amass a large army and attack the Slave Masters of ISIS like their ancestors attacked the Roman Slave Masters.

“Rabbi Marvin Hier, the founder and Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, has called on President Barack Obama to “name, apologize for, and repudiate” the anonymous official who was quoted, in an Atlantic Magazine article by Jeffrey Goldberg, describing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a “chickenshit.”

It was John Fremont, with the help his wife, Jessie Benton, who authored the first emancipation of slaves in America, thus, forcing the hand of Abraham Lincoln. Fremont was a co-founder of the Republican Party, who along with many foreigners known as Forty-Eighters, took up the cause that America should be an Abolitionist Nation. Fremont was the first Presidential Candidate for the party that would echo the ancient cry of Moses.

“This is an aspect of Southern social life about which little has been written. Among
the Jews of Mobile, according to the 1850 Mss. Census Returns, some of the most pros-
perous Jews reported white servants — Solomon I. Jones (the brother of Israel Jones)
kept two white servants, and Philip Phillips had “four female Irish” in help — un-
doubtedly needed to take care of his large brood of children.

An emerging Christian movement that seeks to take dominion over politics, business and culture in preparation for the end times and the return of Jesus, is becoming more of a presence in American politics. The leaders are considered apostles and prophets, gifted by God for this role.

The organizers of Perry’s rally were from ministries founded by two apostles/prophets of the movement — The Call, and the International House of Prayer founded by Mike Bickle. Bickle, who led part of Perry’s event, has claimed that Oprah Winfrey is a precursor of the Antichrist, and Engle has claimed that gay people are controlled by “demonic spirits.” Both have served on the Council of Prophetic Elders initiated by Wagner.

On 25 March 2007, bicentenary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade, then Prime Minister Tony Blair of Britain publicly stated that slavery was “a crime against humanity” and offered “deep sorrow” for British involvement but no apology.

By 1639 Jews constituted a substantial portion of the white civilian population of Recife and owned about 6 percent of the sugar mills in Dutch Brazil. Jewish merchants bought a large share of the slaves transported by the Dutch West India Company and then retailed them to Portuguese planters on credit, arousing complaints of high prices and high interest rates. A few Amsterdam Jews such as Diego Dias Querido, a native of Portugal, challenged the India Company’s monopoly and chartered their own ships to transport slaves from Africa to Brazil or the Spanish Caribbean.

When one considers that the Jews of Newport owned about 300 slave-transporting ships, active without interruption, docking at Newport-Africa, Charleston, (or Virginia), one can approximate the tremendous earnings which made their way to Jewish ship owners. Indeed, the Jews admit, that of the 600 ships, leaving Newport harbor into all the world, “at least half of them” went their way to Africa, and we know what these ships going to Africa “were seeking.”

The transatlantic slave trade forms part of the wider history involving Jews and slavery which involved not only Africans, but also Europeans (especially Slavs), Middle Easterners, Central Asians and others. Specifically in relation to the transatlantic slave trade, it deals with the transportation of Black Africans to the Americas. Jews owned many of the slave-ships and had a very prominent, even leading role in the whole scheme.

Jews also sold white people as slaves to the Americas. Where tribes in Africa would kidnap other tribes to sell them to slavery to Jews, the Jews would kidnap whites. The hundreds of thousands of whites who were kidnapped, chained, whipped and worked to death in the American colonies and during the Industrial Revolution is kept secret by the Zionist-controlled media.[1]

[1918-1979] confirmed in his many books that jewish merchants engineered the African slave trade from start to finish. The renowned rabbi Morris Raphall wrote “The Bible View of Slavery” in 1861 to educate the general public that jews claim the religious right to own slaves. All of the jewish patriarchs found in the “the scriptures” were invented as slave owners in order to legitimize slavery.

Previous students of the American Jewish scene have appeared to be reluctant 
to investigate the question of Jewish participation 
in the slave system. Works on local Jewish history in Southern 
communities, in particular, have either glossed over or altogether 
ignored this basic aspect of the life and experiences of the Jews of 
the Old South. It is my purpose to attempt to survey the following 
themes: Jews as planters, and as owners of slaves; the treatment 
of slaves by Jews; the emancipation of slaves by Jews; Jews as 
harsh taskmasters; business dealings of Jews with slaves and free 
Negroes; Jews as slave dealers; cases of miscegenation involving 
Jews and Negroes; and opinions of Jews about the slave system. 2

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Monday that a potential nuclear deal with Iran “could threaten the survival of Israel,” as he kicked off a contentious visit to the United States meant to build the case against such an agreement.

The centerpiece of his visit will be an address to Congress on Tuesday. But speaking first to The American Israel Public Affairs Committee in Washington, the Israeli leader underscored the dangers he said are posed by Iran, which he called the world’s “foremost sponsor of state terrorism.”

“Iran envelops the entire world with its tentacles of terror,” he said, displaying a map showing various connections between Iran and terror groups. He warned Iran could pursue Israel’s destruction if it obtained a nuclear weapon.

“We must not let that happen,” Netanyahu said.

Both the Obama and Netanyahu administrations, as a matter of policy, agree that Iran must not be able to obtain a nuclear weapon. But the Israeli leader has concerns that the framework of the current diplomatic talks could lead to an ineffective deal.

His address to Congress on Tuesday has meanwhile become the source of immense tension between the two governments. The speech was arranged at the invitation of House Speaker John Boehner, but without the involvement of President Obama. Some Democrats plan to boycott that speech, and the U.S. president has no plans to meet with the prime minister — though the White House insists this is out of a desire not to appear to be influencing upcoming Israeli elections. On Sunday, Secretary of State John Kerry said in an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” before he arrived in Switzerland for talks with Iran’s foreign minister, that the administration did not want the event “turned into some great political football.”

But it appeared too late for that. With accusations flying on Capitol Hill, Netanyahu’s visit has plunged the rocky Obama-Netanyahu relationship to perhaps its lowest point.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told Fox News on Monday this is the “worst” he’s ever seen the U.S.-Israel relationship. He claimed critics are acting “in such a hysterical fashion” because they’re concerned Netanyahu will make a “compelling argument” against the pending Iran agreement.

Netanyahu, though, stressed Monday that the alliance is “stronger than ever” despite the current disagreement, as he gently mocked the recent media coverage.

“Never has so much been written about a speech that hasn’t been given,” he said. Netanyahu also said he meant no “disrespect” to Obama or his office in agreeing to address Congress. He said he “deeply” appreciates all Obama has done for Israel and did not intend to “inject Israel into the American partisan debate.”

But he said he had a “moral obligation” to speak up about the dangers Israel faces, and stressed that these dangers are, for his country, a matter of “survival.”

The prime minister’s address was to be bracketed by speeches from two senior U.S. officials: U.N. Ambassador Samantha Power and National Security Adviser Susan Rice.

Power, who spoke Monday morning, tried to ease tensions and offer assurances of the strength of the U.S.-Israel relationship. She said that partnership “transcends politics” and always will.

She stressed that diplomacy with Iran is the “preferred route” but the U.S. will keep its security commitments.

“The United States of America will not allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon, period,” she said. “There will never be a sunset on America’s commitment to Israel’s security.”

In Washington, Netanyahu has positioned himself squarely against the Obama administration on the issue of the Iran talks. The Israeli leader is expected to press his opposition to a diplomatic accommodation of Iran’s program in his speech Tuesday to Congress.

“We are not here to offend President Obama whom we respect very much,” said a Netanyahu adviser, who was not authorized to be identified. “The prime minister is here to warn, in front of any stage possible, the dangers” of the agreement that may be taking shape.

The adviser, who spoke shortly before the delegation touched down in Washington, said Israel was well aware of the details of the emerging nuclear deal and they included Western compromises that were dangerous for Israel. Still, he tried to lower tensions by saying that Israel “does not oppose every deal” and was merely doing its best to warn the U.S. of the risks entailed in the current one.

The Obama administration apparently is concerned about the details Netanyahu might discuss. An Associated Press journalist traveling with Kerry in Geneva tweeted Monday that Kerry said the U.S. is concerned by reports that “selective details” of the talks may be revealed.

Netanyahu considers unacceptable any deal that does not entirely end Iran’s nuclear program. But Obama is willing to leave some nuclear activity intact, backed by safeguards that Iran is not trying to develop a weapon. Iran insists its program is solely for peaceful energy and medical research.

The invitation to speak to Congress extended by Boehner, R-Ohio, and Netanyahu’s acceptance have caused an uproar that has exposed tensions between Israel and the U.S., its most important ally.

By consenting to speak, Netanyahu angered the White House, which was not consulted in advance, and Democrats, who were forced to choose between showing support for Israel and backing the president.

Netanyahu’s visit comes as Congress weighs legislation to trigger more sanctions against Iran if talks fail. Obama adamantly opposes that bill, but supporters could use Netanyahu’s expected warnings to build their case for it.

Latin America and the Caribbean[edit]

Jews participated in the European colonization of the Americas, and owned slaves in Latin America and the Caribbean, most notably in Brazil and Suriname, but also in Barbados and Jamaica.[94][95][96] Especially in Suriname, Jews owned many large plantations.[97] Many of the ethnic Jews in the New World, particularly in Brazil, were “New Christians” or “Conversos“, some of which continued to practice Judaism, so the distinction between Jewish and non-Jewish slave owners is a difficult distinction for scholars to make.[citation needed]

Mediterranean slave trade[edit]

The Jews of Algiers were frequent purchasers of Christian slaves from Barbary corsairs.[98] Meanwhile, Jewish brokers in Livorno, Italy were instrumental in arranging the ransom of Christian slaves from Algiers to their home countries and freedom. Although one slave accused Livorno’s Jewish brokers of holding the ransom until the captives died, this allegation is uncorroborated, and other reports indicate Jews as being very active in assisting the release of English Christian captives.[99] In 1637, an exceptionally poor year for ransoming captives, the few slaves freed were ransomed largely by Jewish factors in Algiers working with Henry Draper.[100]

Atlantic slave trade[edit]

Triangular slave trade.

The Atlantic slave trade transferred African slaves from Africa to colonies in the New World. Much of the slave trade followed a triangular route: slaves were transported from Africa to the Caribbean, sugar from there to North America or Europe, and manufactured goods from there to Africa. Jews and descendants of Jews converted to Christianity participated in the slave trade on both sides of the Atlantic, in the Netherlands, Spain, and Portugal on the eastern side, and in Brazil, Caribbean, and North America on the west side.[101]

After Spain and Portugal expelled many of their Jewish residents in the 1490s, many Jews from Spain and Portugal migrated to the Americas and to the Netherlands.[102] Jewish participation in the Atlantic slave trade increased through the 17th century because Spain and Portugal maintained a dominant role in the Atlantic trade and peaked in the early 18th century, but started to decline after the Peace of Utrecht in 1713 when England obtained the right to sell slaves in Spanish colonies, and England and France started to compete with Spain and Portugal.[103] By the time the worldwide slave trade and European sugar-growing reached its peak in the 18th century, Jewish participation was dwarfed by the enterprise of British and French planters who did not allow Jews among their number. During the 19th century, some Jews owned some cotton plantations in the southern United States but not in meaningful numbers.[102]

Brazil[edit]

The role of Jewish converts to Christianity (New Christians) and of Jewish traders was momentarily significant in Brazil[104] and the Christian inhabitants of Brazil were envious because the Jews owned some of the best plantations in the river valley of Pernambuco, and some Jews were among the leading slave traders in the colony.[105] Some Jews from Brazil migrated to Rhode Island in the American colonies, and played a significant but non dominant role in the 18th-century slave trade of that colony; this sector accounted for only a very tiny portion of the total human exports from Africa.[106]

Caribbean and Suriname[edit]

The New World location where the Jews played the largest role in the slave-trade was in the Caribbean and Suriname, most notably in possessions of the Netherlands, that were serviced by the Dutch West India Company.[104] The slave trade was one of the most important occupations of Jews living in Suriname and the Caribbean.[107] The Jews of Suriname were the largest slave-holders in the region.[108]

According to Austen, “the only places where Jews came close to dominating the New World plantation systems were Curaçao and Suriname.”[109] Slave auctions in the Dutch colonies were postponed if they fell on a Jewish holiday.[110] Jewish merchants in the Dutch colonies acted as middlemen, buying slaves from the Dutch West India Company, and reselling them to plantation owners.[111] The majority of buyers at slave auctions in the Brazil and the Dutch colonies were Jews.[112] Jews allegedly played a “major role” in the slave trade in Barbados[110][113] and Jamaica,[110] and Jewish plantation owners in Suriname helped suppress several slave revolts between 1690 to 1722.[108]

In Curaçao, Jews were involved in trading slaves, although at a far lesser extent compared to the Protestants of the island.[114] Jews imported fewer than 1,000 slaves to Curaçao between 1686 and 1710, after which the slave trade diminished.[110][115] Between 1630 and 1770, Jewish merchants settled or handled “at least 15,000 slaves” who landed in Curaçao, about one-sixth of the total Dutch slave trade.[116][117]

North American colonies[edit]

The Jewish role in the American slave trade was minimal.[118] According to historian and rabbi Bertram Korn, there were Jewish owners of plantations, but altogether they constituted only a tiny proportion of the industry.[119] In 1830 there were only four Jews among the 11,000 Southerners who owned fifty or more slaves.[120]

Of all the shipping ports in Colonial America, only in Newport, Rhode Island did Jewish merchants play a significant part in the slave-trade.[121]

A table of the commissions of brokers in Charleston, South Carolina, shows that one Jewish brokerage accounted for 4% of the commissions. According to Bertram Korn, Jews accounted for 4 of the 44 slave-brokers in Charleston, three of 70 in Richmond, and 1 of 12 in Memphis.[122] However the proportion of Jewish residents of Charleston who owned slaves was similar to that of the general white population (83% versus 87% in 1830).[123]

Assessing the extent of Jewish involvement in the Atlantic slave trade[edit]

Advertisement for slave auction of slave trader Jacob Levin[124][125]

Historian Seymour Drescher emphasized the problems of determining whether or not slave-traders were Jewish. He concludes that New Christian merchants managed to gain control of a sizeable share of all segments of the Portuguese Atlantic slave trade during the Iberian-dominated phase of the Atlantic system. Due to forcible conversions of Jews to Christianity many New Christians continued to practice Judaism in secret, meaning it is impossible for historians to determine what portion of these slave traders were Jewish, because to do so would require the historian to choose one of several definitions of “Jewish”.[126][127]

Historians’ assessment of Jewish involvement in the Atlantic slave trade have varied, with corrections and revisions added over time as new research comes to light. According to Schorsh some pseudohistorians distort the available research to write anti-Semitic polemics.[128][129]{

The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews[edit]

The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, published by The Nation of Islam

In 1991, the Nation of Islam (NOI) published The Secret Relationship Between Blacks and Jews, which alleged that Jews had dominated the Atlantic slave trade.[130] Volume 1 of the book claims Jews played a major role in the Atlantic slave trade, and profited from slavery.[131] The book was heavily criticized for being anti-Semitic, and for failing to provide any objective analysis of the role of Jews in the slave trade. Common criticisms included the fact that the book used selective quotes, made “crude use of statistics,”[102] and was purposefully trying to exaggerate the role of Jews.[132] The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) criticized the NOI and the book.[10] Henry Louis Gates Jr criticized the book’s intention and scholarship.[133]

Historian Ralph A. Austen heavily criticized the book and said that although the book may seem fairly accurate, it is an anti-Semitic book. However, he added that before the publication of The Secret Relationship, some scholars were reluctant to discuss Jewish involvement in slavery because of fear of damaging the “shared liberal agenda” of Jews and African Americans.[134] In that sense, Austen found the book’s aims of challenging the myth of universal Jewish benevolence throughout history to be legitimate even though the means to that end resulted in an anti-Semitic book.[135]

Later assessments[edit]

The publication of The Secret Relationship spurred detailed research into the participation of Jews in the Atlantic slave trade, resulting in the publication of the following works, most of which were published specifically to refute the thesis of The Secret Relationship:

  • 1992 – Harold Brackman, Jew on the brain: A public refutation of the Nation of Islam’s The Secret relationship between Blacks and Jews
  • 1992 – David Brion Davis, “Jews in the Slave Trade”, in Culturefront (Fall 1 992) pp 42–45
  • 1993 – Seymour Drescher, “The Role of Jews in the Atlantic Slave Trade”, Immigrants and Minorities, 12 (1993), pp 113–25
  • 1993 – Marc Caplan, Jew-Hatred As History: An Analysis of the Nation of Islam’s “The Secret Relationship” (published by the Anti Defamation League)
  • 1998 – Eli Faber, Jews, Slaves, and the Slave Trade: Setting the Record Straight, New York University Press
  • 1999 – Saul S. Friedman, Jews and the American Slave Trade, Transaction

Most post-1991 scholars that analysed the role of Jews only identified certain regions (such as Brazil and the Caribbean) where the participation was “significant”.[136] Wim Klooster wrote: “In no period did Jews play a leading role as financiers, shipowners, or factors in the transatlantic or Caribbean slave trades. They possessed far fewer slaves than non-Jews in every British territory in North America and the Caribbean. Even when Jews in a handful of places owned slaves in proportions slightly above their representation among a town’s families, such cases do not come close to corroborating the assertions of The Secret Relationship“.[11]

David Brion Davis wrote that “Jews had no major or continuing impact on the history of New World slavery.”[137] Jacob R. Marcus wrote that Jewish participation in the American Colonies was “minimal” and inconsistent.[138] Bertram Korn wrote “all of the Jewish slavetraders in all of the Southern cities and towns combined did not buy and sell as many slaves as did the firm of Franklin and Armfield, the largest Negro traders in the South.”[139]

According to a review in The Journal of American History of both Jews, Slaves, and the Slave Trade: Setting the Record Straight and Jews and the American Slave Trade: “Faber acknowledges the few merchants of Jewish background locally prominent in slaving during the second half of the eighteenth century but otherwise confirms the small-to-minuscule size of colonial Jewish communities of any sort and shows them engaged in slaving and slave holding only to degrees indistinguishable from those of their English competitors.”[140]

According to Seymour Drescher, Jews participated in the Atlantic slave trade, particularly in Brazil and Suriname,[141] however in no period did Jews play a leading role as financiers, shipowners, or factors in the transatlantic or Caribbean slave trades.[11] He said that Jews rarely established new slave-trading routes, but rather worked in conjunction with a Christian partner, on trade routes that had been established by Christians and endorsed by Christian leaders of nations.[142][143] In 1995 the American Historical Association (AHA) issued a statement, together with Drescher, condemning “any statement alleging that Jews played a disproportionate role in the Atlantic slave trade”.[144]

According to a review in The Journal of American History of Jews, Slaves, and the Slave Trade: Setting the Record Straight (Faber) and Jews and the American Slave Trade (Friedman), “Eli Faber takes a quantitative approach to Jews, Slaves, and the Slave Trade in Britain’s Atlantic empire, starting with the arrival of Sephardic Jews in the London resettlement of the 1650s, calculating their participation in the trading companies of the late seventeenth century, and then using a solid range of standard quantitative sources (Naval Office shipping lists, censuses, tax records, and so on) to assess the prominence in slaving and slave owning of merchants and planters identifiable as Jewish in Barbados, Jamaica, New York, Newport, Philadelphia, Charleston, and all other smaller English colonial ports.”[145] Historian Ralph Austen, however, acknowledges “Sephardi Jews in the New World had been heavily involved in the African slave trade.”[146]

Jewish slave ownership in the southern United States[edit]

Slavery historian Jason H. Silverman describes the part of Jews in slave trading in the southern United states as “minuscule”, and wrote that the historical rise and fall of slavery in the United States would not have been affected at all had there been no Jews living in the south.[13] Jews accounted for only 1.25% of all Southern slave owners.[13]

Aaron Lopez

Jewish slave ownership practices in the southern United States were governed by regional practices, rather than Judaic law.[13][147][148] Many southern Jews held the view that blacks were subhuman and were suited to slavery, which was the predominant view held by many of their non-Jewish southern neighbors.[149] Jews conformed to the prevailing patterns of slave ownership in the South, and were not significantly different from other slave owners in their treatment of slaves.[13] Wealthy Jewish families in the American South generally preferred employing white servants rather than owning slaves.[148] Jewish slave owners included Aaron Lopez, Francis Salvador, Judah Touro, and Haym Salomon.[150]

Jewish slave owners were found mostly in business or domestic settings, rather than on plantations, so most of the slave ownership was in an urban context – running a business or as domestic servants.[147][148] Jewish slave owners freed their black slaves at about the same rate as non-Jewish slave owners.[13] Jewish slave owners sometimes bequeathed slaves to their children in their wills.[13]

Women’s March and Slavery

For ten years I have been covering the story of the Jews involvement in slavery.

John Presco

https://www.vox.com/2019/1/18/18185829/womens-march-2019-dnc-tamika-mallory-view

But this year, the leaders of Women’s March Inc. — one of the organizations that grew out of the original march, and the most visible public face of the march today — are facing calls to step down. The reasons include criticisms of their association with Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and allegations that they made anti-Semitic remarks in planning meetings.

The Gooch Baronets

My late brother-in-law, Garfield (Garth) Benton looks a lot like Senator Thomas Hart Benton. Garth is the father of Drew Benton, who is united with her half-ister that Garth adopted, Shannon Rosamond Benton.

Who owns America has been hotly contested. The President and Vice President were not voted a honorary ownership. They pretend they are handing out Holy Land Grants. Trump’s Wall is a Fake Deed of Trust, that God and Jesus – REJECT!

Gooch Baronets

Jesse Benton married Anne Gooch who allegedly kin to Baron William Gooch, via his brother Rev. Thomas Gooch, who was Queen Anne’s personal minister. William had many military credentials including fighting under John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough in his campaigns in the Low Countries. Anne and John Churchill are kindred of William and Harry Windsor via the Stewart Spencer family.

The Gooch family are in the Peerage, a Gooch Barony established with William Gooch the Governor of Virginia. Genealogists are confused about these links to the Gooch Baronets. I believe this is because Jesse Benton, and John Hart were straddling the fence between the Loyalists and the Rebels. The Hart family married a Gooch as well. The Hart-Bentons were close to Lord Tryon, and it is not clear whose side they were on in the Regulators War. I would suspect they sided with Lord Tryon and thus they were suspect when the Revolutionary War broke out. The dialogue over the Hartford Mill, suggests the Harts were expelled as Loyalists, then came back to marry into the Benton family who had severed ties with England.

The Loyalists were a wealthier class, they true capitalists, thus, the propaganda that this Democracy was founded for the protection of capitalists – is false! Britain is the Capitol of Colonial Capitalists who backed the idea of a Exploiting Empire. Senator Thomas Hart Benton is the author of ‘Manifest Destiny’ thus one could say he knew he was of the Peerage.

Jon Presco

According to Calhoon,[15] Loyalists tended to be older and wealthier, but there were also many Loyalists of humble means. Many active Church of England members became Loyalists. Some recent arrivals from Britain, especially those from Scotland, had a high Loyalist proportion. Loyalists in the southern colonies were suppressed by the local Patriots, who controlled local and state government. Many people — including former Regulators in North Carolina — refused to join the rebellion, as they had earlier protested against corruption by local authorities who later became Revolutionary leaders. The oppression by the local Whigs during the Regulation led to many of the residents of backcountry North Carolina sitting out the Revolution or siding with the Loyalists.[15]
In areas under rebel control, Loyalists were subject to confiscation of property, and outspoken supporters of the king were threatened with public humiliation such as tarring and feathering, or physical attack. It is not known how many Loyalist civilians were harassed by the Patriots, but the treatment was a warning to other Loyalists not to take up arms. In September 1775, William Drayton and Loyalist leader Colonel Thomas Fletchall signed a treaty of neutrality in the interior community of Ninety Six, South Carolina.[16] For actively aiding the British army when it occupied Philadelphia, two residents of the city would be executed by returning Patriot forces.

Some work on locating Maddocks Mill on the Eno River
A Visit to Maddocks Mill and Hart Ford?
[Click any of the images to see an enlarged version] “Old Mattocks Mill”, the site where Regulators planned the plans that went awry and led to the Battle of Alamance is just west-northwest of Hillsborough, NC near the confluence of McGowans Creek and the Eno River, on the southwest corner of that intersection. It is likely that the dam powering the mill crossed the Eno a few yards downstream from the confluence and, depending on the length of the head race, that would put the mill a few yards plus some below the confluence. The site is now under “Corporation Lake”, an Orange-Alamance water source, and invisible. A worker at the nearby water processing plant said that during low water the dam can be seen in the lake bottom. It is said that the lake is almost completely silted up so, if they ever dredge the silt out of the lake, maybe we’ll get a more precise location and a chance to map this important historic site.

Because Regulator meetings occurred at his mill, to save his neck the owner, Joseph Mattock, gave the mill site to then Governor Wm Tryon. Tryon in turn gave it to one of his local loyal supporter, Thomas Hart. Mattock then led the Quakers of Eno Meeting (iincluding President Carter’s ancestors) to Georgia.

Some will recall that Hart and Benton both were involved with Judge Richard Henderson in the questionable purchase of Cherokee lands during the time of the Regulation. Henderson, Hart and Benton also played leading roles in the anti-Regulator movement in support of Governor Tryon’s clique. Jesse even spent some time as the Governor’s private secretary when he assume governorship of New York, but quickly returned to Carolina before the Revolutionary war. In fact, according to one of his scions, the noted polymath from UNC, Archibald Henderson, Judge Henderson may have aided the suppression of the Regulators so as to encourage Regulators to move west to lands purchased by the Judge, the Harts, Benton and others in modernKentucky and Tennessee.

With the governor’s gift to Thomas Hart, Mattocks Mill became Harts Mill, and the area around it became Hartford. Hart, a visionary along the lines of Judge Henderson, envisaged a planned community at Hartford, and he applied to the colony for the first college charter in North Carolina. The charter was granted for Hartford Academy and a headmaster hired. The doors opened in 1776. The headmaster was a Tory, and Hart himself was at best a lukewarm patriot, so the academy immediately closed. Hart moved to Maryland, apparently a healthier climate for Americans unenthusiastic about the revolution. He left the mill in the hands of Jesse Benton, his son-in-law and subordinate in various business ventures. Jesse, the father of Thomas Hart Benton, died trying to make a go of the mill complex. The painter, Thomas Hart Benton, famous for his New Deal murals and oils celebrating the noble folk of the great plains and mines was a grand nephew of some degree to the original of that name.

While he camped at Hillsborough, Revolutionary War General Cornwallis lost a detachment of twenty-some troops sent to grind meal and guard the Hart/Benton mill. A militia band led by Captain Joseph Graham attacked the mill and destroyed both the mill and British picket. This probably convinced the British that Hillsborough wasn’t nearly the safe resort they had hoped it would be and they left for friendlier parts and more functional mills soon thereafter.

In the vicinity of the old mill can be seen roadbeds that once led to the mill, at least one house site that may or may not relate to the mill (only archaeological testing will tell). Yet to be found and mapped are a ford and other remainders from these long ago days. The stone outcrops mentioned by Captain Graham may yet be found too.

Notes on the parties mentioned: Thomas Hart moved from Maryland to Kentucky, on to some of the land given to the Transylvania Company in recompense for its legally dubious settlement in the area of that state. He became a community leader and expired in good grace, his lack of Revolutionary fervor and his abuse of Regulators apparently were no bar to forgiveness. Jess Benton, as noted, died at Hartford.

Thomas Hart Benton at about age 17 went to UNC. He was caught stealing from his classmates, disgraced and ejected from the school. He moved to Tennesssee with his mother and siblings perhaps to escape the shame, perhaps to simply capitalize on the few crumbs of land unclaimed by his fathers creditors. He and his brothers fought what some called a duel but what really sounds like a simple gunfight with Andrew Jackson’s gang, and seriously wounded Ol’ Hickory. The Bentons then relocated to Missouri (Daniel Boone’s final settling place) where Thomas became a US Senator and served with and cooperated with Jackson.

The British troops killed and captured at Harts Mill and Graham’s militiamen who killed and captured them were finally commemorated with a history-on-a-stick plaque near the battle site, on Highway 70 just west of Hillsborough, NC and the Eno.

We’ll keep looking for artifacts of this fascinating little piece of American history.
Sir William Gooch, 1st Baronet

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Sir William Gooch, 1st Baronet (21 October 1681 – 17 December 1751), born in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, England, and died in London, served as Governor of Virginia from 1727 through 1749. Technically, Gooch only had the title Royal Lieutenant Governor, but the nominal governors, George Hamilton, 1st Earl of Orkney, and Willem Anne van Keppel, 2nd Earl of Albemarle, were in England and did not exercise much authority. Gooch’s tenure as governor was characterized by his unusual political effectiveness. One of his greatest successes was the passage of the Tobacco Inspection Act of 1730. The Act called for the inspection and regulation of Virginia’s tobacco, the most important crop of the colony. Tobacco planters were required to transport their crop to public warehouses where it was inspected and stored. The Act raised the quality of Virginia’s tobacco and reduced fraud; this greatly increased the demand for Virginia tobacco in Europe.
Gooch’s military policy focused on protecting the western territory from Native Americans and French encroachment. He promoted the settlement of the Shenandoah Valley in order to buffer the rest of the colony from Indian attacks, and to prevent the French from settling the land.
He had many military credentials including fighting under John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough in his campaigns in the Low Countries and with Admiral Edward Vernon in his expedition against Cartagena, New Grenada (now in Colombia) as part of the War of Jenkins’ Ear. During King George’s War, Gooch received an appointment as brigadier-general in charge of the army raised to invade Canada, but declined. Gooch was made a baronet in 1746 and a major general in 1747. Also in 1747, Gooch made a speech condemning all religious groups aside from the established Church. However, in 1738, Gooch had given a group of Presbyterians the right to settle new territory under the conditions of the English Act of Toleration. In 1749, Gooch left Virginia and returned to England.
Gooch married Rebecca Staunton (for whom Staunton, Virginia is named), the daughter of a squire in Middlesex, England. The two had a son named William who grew up in Williamsburg. William became a naval officer, but died of the “bloody flux” at the age of 26, shortly before his parents returned to England.
Gooch honored himself with the naming of Goochland County, Virginia in 1727.

John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, Prince of Mindelheim, KG, PC ( /ˈmɑrlbərə/, often /ˈmɔːlbrə/;[2] 26 May 1650 – 16 June 1722 O.S),[1] was an English soldier and statesman whose career spanned the reigns of five monarchs through the late 17th and early 18th centuries. Rising from a lowly page at the court of the House of Stuart, he loyally served James, Duke of York, through the 1670s and early 1680s, earning military and political advancement through his courage and diplomatic skill. Churchill’s role in defeating the Monmouth Rebellion in 1685 helped secure James on the throne, yet just three years later he abandoned his Catholic patron for the Protestant Dutchman, William of Orange. Honoured for his services at William’s coronation with the earldom of Marlborough, he served with further distinction in the early years of the Nine Years’ War, but persistent charges of Jacobitism brought about his fall from office and temporary imprisonment in the Tower. It was not until the accession of Queen Anne in 1702 that Marlborough reached the zenith of his powers and secured his fame and fortune.

As part of William and Mary’s coronation honours, Churchill was created Earl of Marlborough on 9 April 1689 (O.S.); he was also sworn as a member of the Privy Council and made a Gentleman of the King’s Bedchamber. His elevation, however, led to accusatory rumours from King James’s supporters that Marlborough had disgracefully betrayed his erstwhile king for personal gain; William himself entertained reservations about the man who had deserted James.[45] Marlborough’s apologists though, including his most notable descendant and biographer Winston Churchill, have been at pains to attribute patriotic, religious, and moral motives to his action; but in the words of Chandler, it is difficult to absolve Marlborough of ruthlessness, ingratitude, intrigue and treachery against a man to whom he owed virtually everything in his life and career to date.[46]

Sir Thomas Gooch, 2nd Baronet (1674–1754) was an English bishop.
[edit] Life
Gooch was born to Thomas Gooch of Yarmouth, and educated at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, which he entered in 1691. He graduated B.A. in 1694, and M.A. in 1698.[1][2] He became chaplain to Henry Compton, Bishop of London, and preached at his funeral in 1713. Subsequently he was chaplain to Queen Anne, and rector of St Clement Eastcheap and St Martin Orgar. He was archdeacon of Essex from 1714 to 1737.[2][3]
Gooch was Master of Gonville and Caius from 1716. He became successivedly Bishop of Bristol in 1737, Bishop of Norwich in 1738, and Bishop of Ely in 1747. In 1751 he inherited the title of baronet from his brother Sir William Gooch, 1st Baronet.[2]
Gooch’s first wife was Mary Sherlock, daughter of William Sherlock. They had a son, Sir Thomas Gooch, 3rd Baronet of Benacre.[4] He married twice more.[2] He died at Ely Palace, and was buried in the chapel at Gonville and Caius, where there a monument to him on the south wall.[2][

Anne (6 February 1665 – 1 August 1714[1]) ascended the thrones of England, Scotland and Ireland on 8 March 1702. On 1 May 1707, under the Act of Union, two of her realms, the kingdoms of England and Scotland, were united as a single sovereign state, the Kingdom of Great Britain.
Anne’s Catholic father, James II and VII, was deposed during the “Glorious Revolution” of 1688. Her Protestant brother-in-law and cousin William III became joint monarch with his wife, Anne’s sister Mary II. After Mary’s death in 1694, William continued as sole monarch until he was succeeded by Anne upon his own death in 1702.
Anne favoured moderate Tory politicians, who were more likely to share her Anglican religious views than their opponents, the Whigs. The Whigs grew more powerful during the course of the War of the Spanish Succession, until in 1710 Anne dismissed many of them from office. Her close friendship with Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough, turned sour as the result of political differences.
Despite seventeen pregnancies, Anne died without surviving children and was the last monarch of the House of Stuart. She was succeeded by her second cousin George I of the House of Hanover, who was a descendant of the Stuarts through his maternal grandmother, Elizabeth, daughter of James VI and I.

George I (George Louis; German: Georg Ludwig; 28 May 1660 – 11 June 1727[1]) was King of Great Britain and Ireland from 1 August 1714 until his death, and ruler of the Duchy and Electorate of Brunswick-Lüneburg (Hanover) in the Holy Roman Empire from 1698.
George was born in Hanover, in what is now Germany, and inherited the titles and lands of the Duchy of Brunswick-Lüneburg from his father and uncles. A succession of European wars expanded his German domains during his lifetime, and in 1708 he was ratified as prince-elector of Hanover. At the age of 54, after the death of Queen Anne of Great Britain, George ascended the British throne as the first monarch of the House of Hanover. Although over fifty Roman Catholics bore closer blood relationships to Anne, the Act of Settlement 1701 prohibited Catholics from inheriting the British throne; George was Anne’s closest living Protestant relative. In reaction, Jacobites attempted to depose George and replace him with Anne’s Catholic half-brother, James Francis Edward Stuart, but their attempts failed.

There have been two Baronetcies created for persons with the surname Gooch, one in the Baronetage of Great Britain and one in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom.
The Gooch Baronetcy of Benacre Hall, in the County of Suffolk,[1] was created in the Baronetage of Great Britain on 4 November 1746 for William Gooch, Lieutenant Governor of Virginia from 1727 to 1749. The second Baronet was Bishop of Bristol, Norwich and Ely. He married Mary Sherlock, daughter of William Sherlock, Dean of St. Paul. Since then, the Sherlock surname has been used by most succeeding generations as a middle name. The fourth Baronet served as High Sheriff of Suffolk in 1785. The fifth Baronet represented the Suffolk county constituency in the House of Commons from 1806 to 1830. The sixth Baronet sat as Member of Parliament for Suffolk East between 1846 and 1856. The eleventh Baronet was a Colonel in the Army.
The Gooch Baronetcy of Clewer Park, in the County of Berkshire, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 15 November 1866 for the mechanical engineer, businessman and Conservative politician Daniel Gooch. The baronetcy was conferred on him in recognition of his services to the successful submersion of the Atlantic Cables of 1865 and 1866.

Estimated to have been born about 1717, William Gooch Sr. of Albemarle County, Virginia can be traced back in the public records as a resident of Hanover County, Virginia. William is often identified as the son of Claiborne Gooch, who in turn is a son of William & Ursula (Claiborne) Gooch; however, this identification is without any substantive proof or genuine family traditions. Researchers have drawn on circumstantial evidence based on naming patterns which is suggestive of a Gooch-Claiborne family connection, but hardly conclusive in identifying William’s parents or lineage.
The primary work on this family was compiled by Frances Gooch (c1876-1968) of Louisville, Kentucky. Recently, this information has been re-examined by Neville Gooch, a relative who has been working with both her final draft of a family genealogy and with her original field notes. Frances’ completed work is found unpublished at the Virginia State Library, though the work for some reason has been separated into several items.
Two documents are quoted among researcher of this family in identifying William Gooch and his descendants. One is a Louisa County deed naming William and most importantly his wife Elizabeth and the other is a surviving family letter. I have seen only transcriptions of these document and have not conducted and original research to verify the accuracy of this information. Further information on the son of William Gooch (William Gooch Jr.) is found in an early published history of Albemarle County by Rev. Edgard Woods.
The deed naming William Gooch’s wife helps distinguish him from another William Gooch who lived in Hanover county and who married Keziah Hart See Gooches of Caswell. This deed documents that William and his wife Elizabeth entered a deed into the Louisa County Order Book on the 12th of September 1743. The deed names William as “of St. Martin’s Parish, Hanover” and records him selling land to Benjamin Spencer. Elizabeth Gooch, his wife relinquishes her right of dower. Other Hanover or Louisa records are difficult to attribute to William with the existence of the other man by the same name living about the same time in this region.
William Gooch left Hanover and bought land in the Blue Mountains in the most western part of Albemarle County and became involved with mining copper [ref: Gooch, Frances; Unpublished Works]. This mining operation proved to be a failure [ref: Notes; Ledocki, Thomas (1993)]. William Sr. then settled in Everttsville township in Albemarle and his last deed is found in Albemarle in September of 1762.
The second document that is used to identify William Gooch¹s family is a letter written to Mr. Thomas Gooch of Shelby County, Kentucky from his sister Elizabeth Gooch Crease. This letter is dated the 20th of July 1803 and was posted from Springfield, Hampshire County, Virginia; now West Virginia. The letter is transcribed as follows:
Dear Brother,
I have made numberless inquiries after you since you moved to Kentucky; but to no affect. I could never learn in what part of the state you reside till your son John was kind enough to come and see us. His agreeable conversation and easy manners were very pleasing to us all. He gave me very satisfactory information alluding to your present situation in life. It gave me joy to learn you lived a serious and religious life. To serve God in spirit and in truth is a duty indispensability necessary for us to do…
…I have experienced a great deal of affliction since I seen you. My husband also hurt himself with Quicksilver and for many years was incapable of any business, which prevented me from coming to see you when you were living in Henry Co…
I never had but two children – one son and one daughter. My daughter died when near five years old. My son is yet living…
Sister Sarah, I presume, will write to you by John. Sister Ursley lives in Tennessee. I have no word from her for some months. She is a widow with several children.
[re: Legocki, Thomas (1993); from transcription, original owned by Neville Gooch, Louisville, KY].
Francis Gooch is quoted in her notes as stating that Thomas Gooch of Shelby County, Kentucky and the other family members named in the letter are younger siblings of William who had died, twelve years earlier. However, I have not established this as fact.
Thomas Gooch is named in the Kentucky Genealogy and Biography Vol. IV as being born in Charlotte County, Virginia and a descendant of Gov. Gooch of Virginia. Thomas is stated as having settled in Shelby County about 1790. The mere mention of descent from Governor Gooch, causes doubt on the credibility of the accuracy of any distant family history presented in is biography, but it is assumed that the information concerning Thomas¹ own life are probably correct. Ledocki’s notes locate Thomas on the first U.S. Census locates in Amherst County, Virginia. However, this listing of Thomas is just as likely to be Thomas Gooch, son of Stephen Gooch of King William and Louisa.
Other than the signature of William Gooch¹s son as a witness to deeds in Albemarle County, there appears to be source to identify the children of William Sr. and Elizabeth Gooch’s; however, researchers have constructed the following family group:

Note: Somewhere in this line may fit, Thomas Gooch (1788 – aft 1860) of McNary Co., TN who married Lucinda Gilletine, daugther of John Gillentine. Thomas was born about 1788 and had issue: John Gillentine; Jessie; Nicholas; Wiliam; Lucinda Margaret; & Mary. Naming patters suggest a link with this line; however, his residency in South Carolina may indicate he is not from any Virginia lines [ref: Lucretia M. Duncan, Oklahoma City, OK (1992)].
The Children of William & Elizabeth Gooch
William Gooch Jr. is the only clearly identified son of William Sr. and his wife Elizabeth. The younger Gooch is found as a resident of Albemarle County, Virginia between 1751 and 1796; as proven by deeds and by his own will. William Jr. is estimated by researchers to have been born about 1739; married about 1760 to Lucy Fleming, whose parentage is undocumented; and died in 1796. 1704/5 Rent Rolls list a Charles Fleming, as a large absentee landlord in New Kent County with 1700 acres. Frances Gooch’s source for William Jr.’s wife, is thorough naming patterns in Thomas Gooch of Amherst County who names a daughter Lucy Fleming Gooch. William Sr.’s children are listed in his will of August 1796, proved in Albemarle County Court and lists: Phillip, Jesse , Martha, Elizabeth, Matthew Moore, William, Susan, Dabney Claiborn, Mary, Nicholas. William Gooch Jr. and his descendants are included in Rev. Edgar Woods¹ book History of Albemarle County in Virginia (1900) [ref: pg. 208-210]. Rev. Wood writes:
“William Gooch, written in the early records Gouge, came to the county from Hanover. In 1751 he bought land from John Graves in the Everettsville Neighborhood, which nine years after he sold to Benjamin Sneed, and it is believed, removed to Amherst. Another William, who from being denominated Junior, is presumed to be his son, purchased land on the south fork of Hardware in 1764, but in 1770 began buying in the Ragged Mountains south of Ivy Depot, and in that vicinity fixed his residence. His dwelling stood where his son Dabney afterwards lived, and where still later W. O. English taught school. He died in 1796. He and his wife Lucy had ten children, Matthew, Philip, Dabney C., Nicholas L., William, Thomas W., Elizabeth the wife of Nathan Dedman, Martha the wife of William Thurmond, Susan, and Mary the wife of William Moore. Matthew, who was admitted to the Albemarle bar in 1796, and Nicholas removed to Kentucky. Philip removed to Amherst, and to him his father transferred the land which he first bought on the Ragged Mountains, and which somehow acquired the name of Little Egypt, included the present reservoir, and was sold by his son Claiborne to the Houchens and Mayo families that still live on it. Claiborne Gooch removed to Richmond, became Adjutant General of the State, and was associated with Thomas Ritchie in publishing the Richmond Enquirer.
Dabney married Elizabeth the daughter of Rev. William Irvin of the South Garden, and had a daughter Mary, the wife of her cousin, Dr. William F. Gooch. He died in 1844. Thomas W. married Nancy , another daughter of Mr. Irvin and for many years kept a tavern at the D.S. He died in 1838. His children were Alonzo, Edwin, Meade, Angelina, and Elizabeth the wife of John Fray Jr. Alonzo was for some years a merchant in Charolottesville, and a magistrate of the county, and lived on the lot west of the Episcopal Church, now occupied by Capt. H. Robertson. His wife was a daughter of B.F. Porter, of Orange, and died in 1897 in Bluefield W. Va.
Dr. William F. Gooch was a grandson of William Jr., and came to Charlottesville from Ameherst about 1823. The next year he married his cousin Mary, the only daughter of Dabney C. For many years he practiced his profession actively both in town and country. His town residence was the house now occupied by James F. Burnley on High Street. He was appointed a magistrate in 1843. Not long before the war he removed to his farm south of Ivey, where he died at an advance age in 1881. He had two daughters, Maria the wife of Paul H. Goodloe and Elizabeth the wife of W. O. English.”
The above account of the Gooch family is also intersting in that the family names of Burnley and Sneed are mentioned, both families recalled by Rev. Buckner Sneed in his account the family of William Gooch of Caswell County, NC; who was a contemporary of William Gooch Sr. of Albemarle. The children of William Gooch Jr. settled in various places: Phillip in Amherst, Jesse in Garrard County, Kentucky, Elizabeth Dedman in Woodford County, Kentucky, William in Monroe County, Missouri, Susan and Dabney remained in Albemarle, and Nicholas in Lincoln County, Kentucky.
Though researchers of this family have been content to link themselves to Claiborne, the son of William and Ursula (Claiborne) Gooch, there is no evidence for this conclusion, other than the usage of the name Claiborne. Most of the work presented to me by Thomas F. Legocki of Ogden, Utah shows a great deal of knowledge on the Albemarle family, but poor documentation on early Gooch families. Work done from this family is still unable to distinguish between the William Gooch of Hanover/Caswell and the William Gooch of Hanover/Albemarle. Confusion between William & Ursula (Claiborne) Gooch and William & Alice (Thacker) Gough of King and Queen County, are also evident in the Ledocki papers. The son Dabney Claiborne, does denote relations to both family; however, the name appears to belong to their seventh child, suggesting a far more distant connection to the Dabney and Claiborne families than researchers claim. However, a Dabney connection suggest a relationship to one of the Gooch families in Louisa. As is often the case in Virginia research, the lack of good information leads to speculation. This speculation general excludes the families of the wives, whose origins in Virginia society were as of equal importance as their husband’s family. Both William Sr. wife, Elizabeth, and William Jr.’s wife, Lucy Fleming, my have descended from either of the Dabney or Claiborne families. It is interesting to note that among the naming patterns of William Jr.’s children, the use of Phillip and Jesse, as names for his eldest children, suggest very different connections than those claimed by this family’s researchers. Neither Phillip nor Jesse were that common in this area, for this period of time. Neither Phillip not Jesse are names that appear in any of the other Gooch families of this generation.

Shave The Colonel’s Mustache

I am kin to Colonel Thomas Hart, who Senator Thomas Hart Benton was named after, as well as the artist by the same name. The mascot for the Covington Catholic High is a Kentucky Colonel. He is dressed in plantation garb. He has a mustache like the man in the photo. His kindred is wearing his hat. This is the famous Hart-Clay family who owned plantations and slaves. With the harassment and humiliation of a Native American in our Capital, the New Civil War has begun.

It is clear that white people are getting the message they own America, and, the Deed comes from Jesus Christ. This is a Holy Civil War. I am kin to General Robert E. Lee. I can assure you the Hart and Clay family were anti-Catholic, and staunch supporters of the Protestant religion. They made war on the Indians who adopted Daniel Boone in a ritual.

Honoring your history does not include a hundred sneering, self-righteous, Smirkers for Jesus, ganging up on a old man. They surrounded him and violated his space.

Doing penance is a huge part of the Catholic religion. I suggest a Colonel look-a-like be made to pass through a gauntlet, and touched by a coup stick.  The Colonel will prostate himself on the Capital steps, then kneel while his mustache is shaved off. His plantation slave-master clothes will be burned. His blue hat will be cast on the ground and danced upon by a thousand Native Americans.

So be it!

The commission of Kentucky Colonel is the highest title of honor bestowed by the Governor of Kentucky.

The commission of Kentucky Colonel is the highest title of honor bestowed by the Governor of Kentucky. It is recognition of an individual’s noteworthy accomplishments and outstanding service to our community, state and nation.

The Kentucky Colonels is a voluntary philanthropic organization.

A sitting Kentucky governor noted in a letter to the Kentucky Colonels that he commissioned individuals as Kentucky Colonels “as a Governor’s way of recognizing individuals for their service and accomplishments on behalf of others.”

If you’re a commissioned Colonel, you are a Kentucky Colonel for life. We now encourage you to activate your membership in the Kentucky Colonels by making a tax-deductable contribution to the Good Works Program.

Kentucky Colonels are unwavering in devotion to faith, family, commonwealth and country. Passionate about being compassionate. Proud leaders who are gentle but strong in will and commitment. The generosity of our members enables the Kentucky Colonels – as a recognized 501 (c) (3) tax exempt nonprofit organization – to reach out and care for our children, support those in need and preserve our rich heritage.

On April 11, 1799, Clay married Lucretia Hart at the Hart home in Lexington, Kentucky. Her father, Colonel Thomas Hart, was early settler of Kentucky and a prominent businessman.[16] Hart proved to be an important business connection for Clay, as he helped Clay gain new clients and grow in professional stature.[17] Hart was the namesake and grand-uncle of Missouri Senator Thomas Hart Benton, and was also related to James Brown, a prominent Louisiana politician, and Isaac Shelby, the first Governor of Kentucky.[18] Clay and Lucretia would remain married until his death in 1852; she lived until 1864, dying at the age of 83. She is interred with her husband in the vault of his monument at the Lexington Cemetery.[citation needed]

Colonel Thomas Hart

Colonel Thomas Hart was the son of Thomas Hart and Susanna Rice Hart and the brother to John, Benjamin, David, Nathaniel and Ann.

“The mother of Lucretia Hart was Susanna, daughter of John Gray, Colonel in the Royal Army. Tradition says he opposed his daughter’s marriage on the grounds that Thomas Hart, her intended, was a rebel. He was, indeed, a bold and active rebel, a member of two Provincial Congresses of North America, a Colonel in the Revolutionary Army, and one of the principals of that daring and romantic enterprise, the Transylvania Land Company. In spite of her father’s disapproval the wedding of Susanna Gray and Thomas Hart, parents of Lucretia Hart, went off as planned.” (Simpson, Letters to)

I am sick to death of the Tiny Family Networking Power Plays in this Clannish town.  You get a few friends to agree with you, and you go on the warpath for any reason what-so-ever.

Above is a pic of me and Gloria. She was close with the White Panthers, a brother and sister legal team. I would be over their house and hear them talking about their court dates, and their legal strategy to get Huey, and Angela out of jail.

I have a very bad feeling about this coming election – and debates. You all have got to get off your comfy reservations and hog farms, and vote like you live in a big city.
