The Jealous Historical Society

Dear Mr. Mayor;

Someone on the Belmont Historical Society suggested I have violated their copyright, by posting an image of William Janke, who may be in a family photograph this is posted on their facebook page. About twelve of my posts have been removed, which alarms me, because I offer NEW family information – that could be used without my permission! Being related this famous family does not rate with this clic who are described as “we”. To be invited by an origination connected with the City of Belmont, to contribute your family history, then be treated like you are a outsider and parasite – is outrageous! This goes against the tradition of other Historical Societies – who encourage descendant of famous people to contribute – because there is no telling what they have, or, if they are going to put that Society in their will. I demand a full investigation. I would like to see your bi-laws.

“The Belmont Historical Society Facebook page features posts and information pertaining to Belmont, San Mateo County, California and its history. Everyone is encouraged to send us messages. We will review the content for its interest to our followers.”

Here is Cynthia guarding her small town from an outsider whose family made most of Belmont’s history. It boggles the mind! Surely progressive investors are grateful for the warning. I live in Sprigfield Oregon that has been called Springtucky. How about Belabama?

“We are related to historic people somewhere.

You were advised that any further threats, accusation or name-calling would result in your being blocked from this page. I have not read your newspaper nore do I intend to. Your posts have been subject to the same review as anyone else’s. Again, this is Cynthia Karpa McCarthy, not the president or any other officer of BHS. Please blame me entirely.

Cipriani describes himself as Florentine in his diaries even though he was from Corsica. He recounts meeting another Italian speaker in Nevada and tells him he’s “Florentine, thank God!” Belmont Historical Society, Belmont, CA sent Today at 8:03 AM One of the photos and captions is from the book I wrote. I am not certain if you think much of this information is mew to us.

Where are my posts? I just read this on your page. I am compelled to write an article on my blog-newspaper – for the arts – about your harassment and oppression of my CONNECTION to MY family history – that irks you – because you think you own MY family information. WE are not related. To hint I am violating your copyright, is harassment. I want your name. Here is your chance to make clear to the People of Belmont, why you are censoring information THEY may find interesting and revelent. That you allow a post of a Hollywood actress, who just went to school in Belmont, goes against the criteria you apply to me that is TOO SPECIAL. I suspect you don’t like other things I wrote about on my newspaper and are electing yourself to be a police force.

What are you suggesting? Who is us? The Janke family is MY family not your family. Millions of families brag on their family history no matter how mundane. This is all I am doing. I did not come to battle with volenteers who I thought would be glad to hear from descendants of the Founder of Belmont. I thought MY history was being rejected as it was twenty years ago by kin of your famous cop who controlled the city history. I never encountered the way you set up your facebook group and assumed the worst and appologised. I even removed post to show I am not at war with a group of volunteers who may be working on books and have written books. I know being related to historic people gives me an advantage. The Benton’s are kin to the Bonaparte family that Cipriani had extensive relationship with.

Here is my good friend, Mark Gall. For 25 years we have discussed out family history. He grew up in Hunter’s Point and will be in my book. Our mutual friend also went to Harvard and wrote a Eisenhower bio. He was an editor for Double Day. How long has each member of the Belmont Society been volunteering to gather my family history? Thank you for the good job you have done. https://pages.uoregon.edu/mgall/vita.htm

Are you suggesting I am violating YOUR copyright, or, a group’s copyright? I just want to make sure. There is strong evidence that MY family has been collecting OUR history for hundreds of years. Here is the proof the Benton family is kin to the Bonaparte family who were close friends of Cipriani. My famous artist sister married the artist, Garth Benton, the cousin of the artist Thomas Hart Benton. My niece Drew Benton is an artist, and so am I. This constitutes a artistic dynasty – when you include my mother’s cousin, the actress Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Benton-1403Zebulon Howell Benton (1811-1893) | WikiTree FREE Family Treewikitree.com

Are you suggesting that if Harry Truman was born in Belmont, you would exclude the fact he was President? The Bonapartes were world famous and were preparing to invade California and had extensive dealings with Cipriani who they may have been trying to employ in their designs on U.S. Territory. Did Cipriani live in Belmont? You brought his name up in our chit-chat. It appears you are preparing to get me banned from your facebook. You appear to be setting me up. Are you saying I can not post on the Palace Hotel that Ralston built – outside Belmont city LIMITS? You are trying to LIMIT me. I wonder if other city history originations do this.

You sent Today at 10:04 AM

I would like to see a copy of your bi-laws, that should suggest YOU encourage people to contribute THEIR history. It looks like you are DISCOURAGING me.

As of 10:20 P.M. on 2/25/21 these posts are up.

I subscribe to the ideas of Richard Florida who says creative people and investors want to be a part of a progressive, tolerant, and open Bohemian lifestyle. They do not want to move to a place that is closed and claimed by the locals who don’t trust outsiders. https://www.theguardian.com/…/gentrification-richard…

  • Greg PrescoFor several days I have been looking for a backer to buy this house in Belmont in order to open a gallery and have a home for my newspaper blog, Royal Rosamond Press. Here is Lawrence Chazen who was a partner of Christine in her first gallery. He was my father’s private lender in his real estate loan business. He is a advisor for the Getty family and a partner in PlumbJack along with the Newsom and Pelosi family. William Ralston is titled ‘The Man Who Built San Francisco’. The Getty family picked up the gauntlet – and run San Francisco and the State of California. They are interested in banks. They like to invest in historic places that honor the arts and artists. https://rosamondpress.com/…/07/19/what-is-lawrence-chazen/

  1. Reblogged this on Rosamond Press and commented:

    What got me interested in Belmont was the house I saw for sale. I told the MacCarthy Gang I was looking for funding in order to found a art gallery around my sister’s work, and other family artitst. This house was going to be the home of Rosamond Press. The MG had to know that this is JUST WHAT many Mayors want, a Bohemian Hot Spot. I cite Richard Florida. At no time to I here – Great idea Mr. Presco! Wow! You are a God-send, the guy we’ve waiting for! Do you think Cynthia wanted to be in my shoes, and she is the one to go to the Mayor – with my BIG IDEA – and say it’s hers. You think The Belmont Gang want to make a name for themselves in literary history? https://rosamondpress.com/2021/03/01/meet-snitty-cynthia-karpa-mccarthy/
