If Jessie Benton-Fremont were alive today, she would sue Oregon State University. Of this I have no doubt. As her kindred, and as the Historian of the Benton Family, I will do all I can do to restore the good standing of the history of Jessie’s father in the State of Oregon. I will seek as much help as I can muster.
Jessie wrote the first history of Oregon. She was a historian, who did not foresee there would ever come a time when her illustrious family tree would come under such a damaging and uncaring attack – by historians no less! To sever the history of Senator Thomas Hart Benton from any aspect of American History, is to destroy our National Tree. The promise OSU made to go foreword after vilifying Benton’s history, skips over the contributions his daughter and his son-in-law made to much of the early history of the West, and indeed butchers the most prestigious genealogies in the world. The Preston Family Tree is forever spliced with the Stewart family tree, in which Princess Diana Spencer, and her two princely sons – spring!
There has been much news about the Trump children wanting to be recognized by the Royal Windsor’s. However, they own a commoners genealogy, and the Trumps own no history. If you follow the Preston line via Jessies mother you arrive at William Stewart who came from Scotland to own a great plantation in Ulster Ireland. Here it is, the Stewart Line of the Ulster-Scots whom backed William of Orange. William is the progenitor of the American Revolution. This Stewart-Preston linage made America great. It went West under the guidance of Senator Thomas Hart Benton, whose wife was of the Stewart line.
This line split in twain, when John Fremont freed the slaves of Missouri, and with the help of the Germans and Hungarians, co-founded the Republican Abolitionist Party. No man in American was so divided. The Senator loved his wife, and daughter, dearly, but, Thomas looked to the better future of the Stewarts of Ulster, in America. I wonder if Queen Elizbeth, and her grandsons, know of this history – that is their destiny! The Preston family owned great plantations in the South. The British ended slavery years before the Civil War. Thousands of slaves owned by the Preston-Stewart line, were set free. These are the subjects that were ceremoniously adopted when Harry married Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Thomas Starr King was a very good friend of the Fremonts and attended Jessie’s Salon at Black Hawk in San Francisco. Lincoln credits him with saving the Union by talking the Fremonts out forming a new nation in California, and I believe Oregon. Their daughter burned all the Fremont documents which I believe contained the Master Plan that was made in Ulster Ireland. This is why Fremont and Lincoln had a falling out. Blair told the President. The Confederacy was the Preston-Breckenridge family. I suspect they were in league with the Stewarts in Britain. I have put this history together. This is why I am livid with Ed Ray and the historian of USO.
There is a chance the Windsors do not know of this Stewart-Preston linage to Benton, which makes a lawsuit imperative to arrive at more facts, and truths. I want a British Attorney of the Temple to take up Jessie Benton’s cause! Thank God I am alive!
God save the Queen!

I awoke on June 6th. D-Day after posting the above, and realized I am the Defender of the High Stewards of Scotland in America, and British Royalty. My kindred, William Shakespeare, mentions the progenitor of the Stewarts in MacBeth. My theory that Senator Thomas Hart Benton instigated an Exodus of Scot-Irish to Oregon in order to found a New Scotland, is viable. I looked at a letter written by Jessie Benton to a British General in Canada, assuring him her father was not going to bring slavery to Oregon. The British feared these Scot-Irish in Oregon would invade Canada when the population increased. The Orange Order played a huge role as Canadian Pioneers. Bennett Rosamond was a Grand Master of the Orange Lodge.
Ed Ray and his historians have expunged and altered Benton’s history contending he owned feelings of superiority that he wished to spread to outside prescribed boundaries. Now, where would those boundaries begin and end, President Ray? The same question can be asked about Scottish Pride!
Genealogist say Alan Fitz Fladd is the progenitor of the Earls of Araundel, also titled the ‘Earls of Sussex’. At 11:16 I found this:
|Creation date||19 May 2018 (announced)
16 July 2018 (Letters Patent)
|Peerage||Peerage of the United Kingdom|
|Present holder||Prince Harry|
|Heir apparent||Archie Mountbatten-Windsor|
|Remainder to||the 1st Duke’s heirs male of the body lawfully begotten|
|Subsidiary titles||Earl of Dumbarton
I suggest Oregon State University and myself, the Representative of the Benton Family, enter into arbitration, and invite Harry and Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, to the Renaming Ceremony at Benton Hall. It appears the Queen and her College of Heraldry know what they are about, and, a great wrong has been righted, and, I am liken to James Bond. Ian Fleming is in my family tree! Long live the Archie and his beautiful parents!
On this day, let us honor the American Soldiers who landed on the beaches of Normandy, in what I title ‘The Exodus of Liberation’ that was a homecoming to the great grandsons of our forefathers who make up our National Liberty Tree.
P.S. I just saw the news where Trump flatters a strong man in front of the President of Ireland, who as yet does not know of my amazing research!
President Donald Trump is dismissing reports that a former North Korean negotiator in the nuclear talks with the United States had been executed, reportedly over North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s unsuccessful summit with the president in February.
Alan fitz Flaad (c. 1078 – after 1121) was a Breton knight, probably recruited as a mercenary by Henry I, in his conflicts with his brothers. After Henry became King of England, Alan became an assiduous courtier and obtained large estates in Norfolk, Sussex, Shropshire, and elsewhere in the Midlands, including the feudal barony and castle of Oswestry in Shropshire. His duties included supervision of the Welsh border. He is now noted as the progenitor of the FitzAlan family, the Earls of Arundel (1267–1580), and the House of Stuart, although his family connections were long a matter of conjecture and controversy.
Thomas Starr King (December 17, 1824 – March 4, 1864) was an American Universalist and Unitarian minister, influential in California politics during the American Civil War, and Freemason. Starr King spoke zealously in favor of the Union and was credited by Abraham Lincoln with preventing California from becoming a separate republic. He is sometimes referred to as “the orator who saved the nation.“
Meghan Markle is ‘very nice’ says Donald Trump
The US President had been desperate to have his photograph taken with the royals, but as his UK visit neared a close, he was still unable to get one. Although Harry, William and Kate had attended events with Trump, no official picture was captured. According to US publication The Daily Beast, Trump wanted the photograph as the likes of Meghan and Kate are popular at present among US citizens.
William Shakespeare presented him flatteringly in Macbeth as a martyred ancestor of James VI of Scotland and I of England. These legends, accepted as history, became part of the foundation narrative of the Stewarts and forced later writers to trace the Stewart ancestry through Fleance, Banquo’s son. David Symson, the Historiographer Royal of Scotland, in a work dedicated to Queen Anne, followed the chroniclers in having Fleance marry a daughter of the Welsh ruler Gruffydd ap Llywelyn,

Having taken a look at Kate Middleton’s ancestry last month, it struck me that I have never done a column on one of the most unique aspects of Prince William’s Spencer ancestry. Through the marriage of Princess Diana’s grandparents, John the 7th Earl Spencer and Lady Cynthia Hamilton, the Spencer family enjoys a uniquely comprehensive range of descents from the royal house of Stewart/Stuart that ruled in Scotland from the late 14th century and in all of Britain from 1603 to 1714. And in fact, if they had been legitimate lines of descent, several of the ancestors in the Spencer-Hamilton lineage would have been senior in the line of succession to the Hanover/Windsor family. But as it is, all but one of the instances that I will cite in what follows are of children born to royal mistresses, and the one exception comes from a marriage of dubious validity.

THE STEWARTS IN IRELAND
“Amongst the many branches of the Stewart family that have been transplanted out of Scotland, there have been few that have attained to the degree of wealth and influence which this line of Ulster Stewarts reached in the 17th and 18th centuries. The principal seat was formerly at Newtown-Stewart, County Tyrone, which takes its name from Sir William Stewart, 1st Baronet, who was its founder, and the ruins of the castle of his descendants, the Lords Mountjoy, in the Elizabethan style though not dating back earlier than the middle of the 17th century, are still a picturesque feature of this beautifully situated little Ulster town.
On his return to Ireland he was made a brigadier-general. Macaulay styled him “a brave soldier, an accomplished scholar.” In Dublin he was the centre of a small circle of learned and ingenious men, who had, under his presidency, formed themselves into a Royal Society.
In 1685 Charles II died and King James II acceeded to the throne. James started replacing Protestants in Ireland with Catholics. In 1687 James appointed a new viceroy: Richard Talbot, Earl Tyrconnell.
In 1688 James asked Tyrconnell for good Irish troops to defend England. These troops left in September and October 1688. Tyrconnell felt it necessary to replace these troops and decided to raise four new regiments one for each Irish province. The regiment for Ulster was to be raised by the Earl of Antrim, a Catholic nobleman of Scottish origin. Antrim, already in his seventies, hired 1,200 Scottish mercenaries (i.e. redshanks), making sure they were all Catholics. The unit should have been ready by 20 November, but delays occurred.
In 1688, Mountjoy commanded the regiment stationed in Derry. During the Glorious Revolution he stayed loyal to James while most Protestants declared for the Prince of Orange. Nevertheless, Tyrconnell did not trust Mountjoy and sought to garrison Derry with more reliable troops. On 23 November 1688 Tyrconnell ordered Mountjoy to march to Dublin for embarking to England. He then sent Alexander MacDonnell, Earl of Antrim to occupy Derry with his newly raised regiment, but when Antrim eventually reached the city on 7 December, he found the gates shut against him by the 13 apprentice boys. This was the beginning of the Protestant revolt in Ulster. Tyrconnell then sent Mountjoy back to Derry. Mountjoy succeeded to strike a deal with the town on 21 December, and two of the companies of his regiment, consisting entirely of Protestants, were let into the town. Mountjoy became governor of Derry but soon delegated the office to Robert Lundy.

From the English Wikipedia page on the Battle of Steenkerque, where he died:
The French had achieved their immediate object by capturing of Namur. The French, not wishing to fight, took up a strong defensive position in accordance with the strategical methods of the time. The French army lay facing North-West with its right on the Zenne at Steenkerque and its left towards Enghien. Their supposition was that the enemy would not dare to attack it.
(King William III of England and William II of Scotland) had replaced Waldeck as supreme allied commander. The allied army was encamped about Halle. The Allies, who would otherwise probably have done as the French marshal desired, were by the fortune of war afforded the opportunity of surprising a part of the enemy’s forces.
Accordingly William set his army in motion before dawn on August 3 and surprised the French right about Steenkerque. He completely misled the enemy by forcing a detected spy to give (French Commander, the Duc de) Luxemburg false news. In the 17th century when the objects of a war were, as far as possible, secured without the loss of valuable lives and general decisive battles were in every way considered undesirable, a brilliant victory over a part, not the whole, of the enemy’s forces was the tactical idea of the best generals.
The allied advanced guard of infantry and pioneers, under the Duke of Wurttemberg, deployed silently around 5:00 a.m. close to the French camps. The main body of the French army was farther back and forming up after the passage of some woods. Belatedly, Luxemburg became aware of the impending blow. When the fight opened, Luxemburg was completely surprised and he could do no more than hurry the nearest foot and dragoons into action as each regiment came on the scene.
Unfortunately for the allies, the march of their main body had been mismanaged. Valuable time was lost. At 9 a.m. Wurttemberg started methodically cannonading the enemy while waiting for support and for the order to advance. The French worked with feverish energy to form a strong and well-covered line of battle at the threatened point. The allied main body had marched in the usual order with one wing of cavalry leading, the infantry following, and the other wing of cavalry at the tail of the column. On arrival at the field they were hastily sorted out into infantry and cavalry, for the ground was only suitable for the former.
Only a few allied battalions had come up to support the advanced guard when the real attack opened at 12.30. Although the advanced guard had already been under arms for nine hours and the march had been over bad ground, its attack swept the first French line before it. The English and Danes stubbornly advanced and the second and third lines of the French infantry gave ground before them. However, Luxemburg was rapidly massing his whole force to crush them. During this time the confusion in the allied main body had reached its height.
Count Solms ordered the cavalry he commanded forward, but the mounted men, scarcely able to move over the bad roads and heavy ground, only blocked the way for the infantry. Some of the English foot, with curses upon Solms and the Dutch generals, broke out to the front, and Solms, angry and excited, thereupon refused to listen to all appeals for aid from the front. No attempt was made to engage and hold the centre and left of the French army, which hurried, regiment after regiment, to take part in the fighting at Steenkerque. William’s counter-order that the infantry was to go forward, the cavalry to halt, only made matters worse, and by now the advanced guard had at last been brought to a standstill.
At the crisis Luxemburg had not hesitated to throw the whole of the French and Swiss guards into the fight, led by the princes of the royal house. More and more French troops under command of Boufflers appeared from side of Enghien. During and after this supreme effort the Allies were driven back, contesting every step against the weight of numbers.
The foot and dragoons of the main body which succeeded in reaching the front, served only to cover and to steady the retreat of Wurttemberg’s force. The coup having manifestly failed, William ordered a general retreat. The Allies retired as they had come, their rear-guard under the Dutch Marshal Ouwerkerk showing too stubborn a front for the French to attack. The French army, very disordered and suffering heavy casualties, was in no state to pursue.
Over 8,000 men (including William Stewart) out of only about 15,000 engaged on the side of the Allies were killed and wounded. The losses of the French out of a much larger force were at least equal. Contemporary soldiers affirmed that Steenkirk was the hardest battle ever fought by the infantry in that war. Five English regiments were completely destroyed. Their commander, general Hugh Mackay, was also killed. John Cutts, was one of the few survivors. The English, as they would again 50 years later at Battle of Fontenoy, blamed their great losses on the attitude of the Dutch.
SourceWilliam Stewart, 1st Viscount Mountjoy (1653 – 24 August 1692), was an Anglo-Irish peer and soldier.
Stewart was born in 1653, the son of Sir Alexander Stewart, 2nd Baronet, of Ramelton. He married the Honourable Mary Coote, daughter of Richard Coote, 1st Baron Coote of Coloony. They had six sons and two daughters.
He was appointed Master-General of the Ordnance and colonel of a regiment of foot and in 1682 was raised to the Peerage of Ireland as Viscount Mountjoy and Baron Stewart for services during the Irish Rebellion. In 1686 he served in Hungary at the siege of Buda, where he was twice dangerously wounded, and on his return to Ireland was made a brigadier-general. Macaulay styled him “a brave soldier, an accomplished scholar.” In Dublin he was the centre of a small circle of learned and ingenious men, who had, under his presidency, formed themselves into a Royal Society.
In 1688 he commanded a portion of the royal army of the Catholic King James II stationed at Londonderry. But as he was a Protestant, the Duke of Tyrconnell, Lieutenant Governor of the Irish Army, feared he might be influenced in favour of the Protestant William III of Orange and sent him at the outbreak of Irish hostilities on a diplomatic mission to France, secretly intimating that his detention would be desirable. He was accordingly thrown into the Bastille, and kept confined there until 1692. During his period of confinement, the Parliament of Ireland passed a bill of attainder requiring Stewart and two to three thousand others to report to Dublin for sentencing; Stewart in particular was directed to break out of the Bastille in order to report, under pain of being drawn and quartered.
On his release, he did indeed switch loyalties and joined William’s army in Flanders as a General, losing his life at the battle of Steenkerque on 24 August 1692, aged about 39.
On his death in 1692 his title passed to his eldest son Sir William Stewart, 2nd Viscount Mountjoy. His fifth son, Charles became an officer in the Royal Navy and a Member of Parliament.

Marion County Oregon is named after Francis Marion ‘The Swamp Fox’ who was depicted in the movie ‘The Patriot’. I suspect Benton and the Freemasons brought the Scotch-Irish West to Oregon from Missouri and South Carolina, where Marion was a hero. This is why there are so many redheaded folks in Oregon. Their ancestors adored Senator Thomas Hart Benton, who was prepared to found a New Nation In the West for them because they did most of the fighting against the British. Benton is Scotch-Irish, and so was his wife. To suggest he was a low-life racist who came to Oregon just to kick around Indians and whip some slaves, is a great insult to the Ulster-Scots, that he saw going to the Orient to trade, and, marry Asian women and have children by them.
This is the Scottish Diaspora, who will know about the eviction by Ed Ray and Oregon State University! You made the wrong people feel unwelcome. We are marching to Oregon to confront the Nameless marchers who insulted our history! We will take back our Country! We will cast out the Un-Americans!
The Scottish people went to India and back hundreds of years ago. They have mixed-race descendants there. I suspect Benton was prepared to lead an Exodus if the Confederates, and their allies, won the Civil War. Benton knew what was going on in Burma and Ceylon. He was preparing his people – just incase. He was their Moses!
The Scottish diaspora throughout the world was significant but in India it was huge with every two out of three families having family members working and living in India, Burma and Ceylon.
In Sunset Magazine, Jessie Benton, said the British had a plan to deport most of the Irish-Catholics to the San Juaquin alley in order to exterminate the Scot-Protestants. Jessie edited her husband’s accounts of exploring Oregon. There were tribes that were paid by the British to harass Americans who they feared would invade Canada.
For a major university to outlaw and expunge some of the most amazing world history, in order to appease thirty Latinos marching around and disturbing the peace, is an outrage! Up until a week ago, these thugs – who refused to give their names – thought they had achieved a great victory by wiping out the White Man’s history.
You wanted a Revolution Joseph Orosco? You got it! I’m a white man who isn’t buying your racist bullshit. You looked at a photograph of Senator Thomas Hart Benton, and you saw a superior man. Some men are superior to other men. It’s in our genes! Every dog has their day. You have had yours! It will forever be Benton Hall!
We are ‘The Rose of the World’. We have overcome the world! It’s time to have a White Pride Day….. and march to drums and bagpipes! It’s time to honor the Williamites! A sleeping giant have been awoken!
There has been much ignorant discussion about the source of the name Willamette. I decree it was named after the Protestant Scotts who first settled here. They were the Williamites! Long live the Williamites in their beloved Green Valley!
Ed Ray and his tiny band of nameless men believe they have made inroads in changing the Emerlad Valley into what they want it to be! But, OSU is Ed’s fiefdom and he is the dictator-lord therein. My ancestors shed real blood to form a Democracy! We are the voice of the real people, and we will have our day. Our real protest will come, and crash down the gates of the puppet masters, and raise our Nations’ Flag!
I just sent this to Ed Ray! Senator Thomas Hart Benton’s family is overflowing with men who ran for, and held public office in this Democracy. To attack Benton, is to attack every man and woman whoever cast a vote!
“Every feudal lord has his day, and you have had yours. Long live real history, and the people who made it!

My kindred, Samuel Rosamond, Lemuel Benton, and Gavin Witherspoon, fought under the Francis Marion ‘The Swamp Fox’ in the War of Independence. John Witherspoon is a Signer and is kin to the Preston family, as are the three Patriots above. These four men are kindred to the Stewart family, and thus William and Harry Windsor. Add to this roster, the Hart and Hull family, then here is America’s most illustrious and Patriotic Family.
He sent Lt. Col. Lemuel Benton with sixteen men to seize the pass over Horse Creek. Horry’s men stumbled over a sentry who fired a shot, and they quickly rushed Sumter’s home with Col. Marion’s remaining 134 men closely behind them. In a brief fight, they killed or captured 22 British Regulars and two Loyalists. One of the Continental prisoners, Capt. Perry Benson of the 5th MD Regiment, was wounded as well.
