HEROIN EPIDEMIC STARTED WITH ME

I was a slave trader up to the Haitian Slave Revolt. Then I worked with a cousin who was a minister to Turkey for the crown who provided me with opium to sell to Canton in China. I was mostly responsible for 80% of the youth addictions in China. My Forbes nephews ran my opium empire before one of them got into railroads like me. Then the Russells took over the empire and their cousin founded the Skull & Bones and bought my property in New Haven Connecticut to build their crypt on. Through my nephews, I controlled Baring Brothers Bank and influenced the Bank of England. When my descendant Jane Norton Grew married J.P. Moran Jr. we consolidated the Morgan’s and Rothschilds control over the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England.
