I Am The Custodian

Yesterday, while looking for my play ‘Daughter Dead’ I found this card sent out by Stacey Pierrot, who was sold the Rosamond Estate for ten years. At the end of this contract, the entirety of the estate goes to my two nieces, Shannon Rosamond, and Drew Benton. This is my kin. Pierrot is not related to them. She is not, and never was the Custodian of these human beings that are found in our amazing family tree – I am the custodian of. Because Mark Presco resigned and disappeared himself from our family, I am now the head of our family. This includes Heather and Tyler Hanson.

What I haven’t been able to ascertain, is whether Shannon and Drew got royalties from the sale of Snyder’s biography. If so, then they are part of any movie deal Pierrot makes. Executor, Sydney Morris, backed the idea of a book and movie in order to increase sales out of the Rosamond gallery, that Pierrot closed. My nieces are not happy with her. I will contest all attempts to author another book, or make a movie about Christine Rosamond Benton. There are too many lies that have all but destroyed my family. We are seeing what lying does to a family in regards to the President’s family.

While receiving 0nly $750 dollars a month, I have maintained a Family Owned Creative Legacy – that has bloomed – in spite of the chaos outsiders brought to our table. Last night I watched the series ‘A French Garden’. Empress Josephine’s love of rose gardens was discussed. “What is in a name?”

Marie Josèphe Rose Tascher de La Pagerie;

Only one person owned the name Mary Magdalene Rosamond. My grandmother married a man born of two Rose Names. Royal and Mary had four beautiful daughter, who owned the name that means ‘Rose of the World’.  I have traced the ancestors of these Roses to royalty, and Shakespeare. I did this for free. I never realized a dime. I did it – for love of my roses! Only one born of the Rose Bloodline can be a Custodian or our Family Tree.

Lately I have been exchanging memories with Tim O’Connor who my mother, Rosemary Rosamond, took in, when his famous father threw him out of his house. We talked about our mutual friends, Peter Shapiro, Christine Wandel, and Keith Purvis, who I suspect is alive. I had another dream about him two nights ago. If found, I know he would be happy to contribute his memories. At the opening of the Mayor’s Show, Marilyn Reed gave me an envelope containing one of her memories of Christine that will be published in my book. Also, I have lengthy conversation with Larry Sidel and his daughter Shannon, on facebook messenger. Larry is very supportive of my book. Pierrot should never have been sold our Family Literary Legacy that I revived, and took care of, before Christine died. I know I have the complete approval from Christine, Rosemary, Mary, and Royal, to be the Rightful Custodian of our Creative Legacy.

Christine Rosamond married two actors, Rick Partlow, and Garth Benton. Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor is our second cousin. Our ancestors came from Ireland. Below are four beautiful Irish Roses. This title has never been applied to Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor. Liz is an ‘Irish Rose’ akin to Mary Magdalene Rosamond.

Anyone who wants any of our fragrant history, must respectively ask my permission.

    Royal Rosamond’s Gem Publishing

    My grandfather founded Gem Publishing because no one would publish his books. He taught himself how to write. He went back to his roots in the Ozarks and wrote about ‘His People’. He considered his writing – art. He taught Erl Stanley Gardner how to write and type in the Rosamond home in Ventura California. I keep encountering rude folks in Springtucky who think they are the Salt of the Earth Rednecks, and just may kill a man to prove what liars they are.


    The History of Lurton

In Mr. Sydney Morris’s Report of the Administration he says on page 4 line 10;

“Petitioner hired Stacey Pierrot, who had been assistant manager of the gallery during Decedent’s lifetime, to run the gallery and prepare and execute a marketing plan. The gallery was run by the estate until March 1996 when the gallery was sold to Ms. Pierrot through a contract approved by this Court. During the time that the estate operated the gallery, aggressive marketing efforts were made in an attempt to stir interest in Decedent’s work and increase the potential market for her work. In spite of these efforts, interest in Decedent’s work continued to wane.”

On page six, Mr. Morris explains why there was a delay in the closing of the estate;

“By September 2000, however, plans were underway for a biography of Decedent, which Petitioner hoped might create interest in her work. The book was published in 2002. Although the book did not spur the hoped-for interest in Decedent’s life and work, efforts continued to market the concept of a screenplay based upon Decedent’s life. Petitioner hoping that this might be brought to fruition, elected to keep the estate open. However, it is the Petitioner’s belief the likelihood of an increased interest in Decedents work is negligible, and the time has come to close the estate.”

 Steve looked at me and said , “The Hippies Were Right”  then he asked me to write a song about that.
I did.   for years its been “a hit” with my countless (small time) live audiences…I can’t change the name.
 However you thinking like that, is proof your one of the originals…I remember on 13th street, Keith and you
were both in agreement about not liking that term…I reporter from the San Francisco Chronicle had a Big regular
column in that paper…in early 1967 (just before the summer of Love) he wrote an article and used that Phrase,
Term…we were trying our best to be free spirits, and didn’t want to be labeled…
 though for lack of better terms…to describe those times and the people of the early first movement…for lack
of better ones, that (simple universal) term stuck!! its hip to be hip…old musician terms…underground.
