Synopsis: Where inherited wealth and family intersect-not always for the good. The legacy of a family tree populated with military, political, and industrial leaders of their time, including: ? General John Neville, a central figure in the 1794 Whiskey Rebellion. ? Revolutionary War Major Daniel Leet, who became official surveyor for Western Pennsylvania. ? Kentucky Senator J. J. Crittenden, author of the pre-Civil War Crittenden Compromise. ? T. L. and G. B. Crittenden, the only two brothers to serve as generals on opposing sides of the Civil War. ? Army Lieutenant J. J. Crittenden, who died with Custer at Little Big Horn. ? Missouri Governor Thomas T. Crittenden whose reward led to the murder of Jesse James. ? Army Colonel T. L. Crittenden, executed by the Spanish at Havana Bay. ? Henry Oliver, developer of Minnesota's Mesabi iron ore range upon which U. S. steel production became dependent. ? William Crittenden, ex-U. S. government official in Mexico, became Arthur Stillwell's agent to the Olivers, Pittsburgh steel magnates, leading to construction of the Kansas City Mexico and Orient Railway. ? William Goldsborough, who launched RAMSA, the first California to Mexico airline. Misfortunes of Wealth explores one of American society's endlessly fascinating scenarios, the one where inherited wealth and family intersect, not always to the good. Best of all, the story is true. James Goldsborough takes the reader on a journey beginning with Revolutionary War heroes down through succeeding generations of Civil War notables, industrial titans, an improbable love story with an eleven-year courtship, a couple besotted and befuddled by all that is given them, and finally, a son who not only survives but thrives.
