Percy Avery Rockefeller,
graudated from Yale in 1900
Some of Rockefeller's corporate interests included Atlantic Fruit Company, Anaconda Copper Mining, Bethlehem Steel Corporation, Cuba Company, Chile Copper Company, W. A. Harriman & Co, Brown Brothers & Company, New York Edison.
He was married to Isabel Goodrich Stillman, daughter of First National City Bank president James Stillman (now known as Citibank) on April 23, 1901. Their daughter Isabel Stillman (Rockefeller) Lincoln was a bride's maid at the wedding of Dorothy Walker and Prescott Sheldon Bush.
So we have a connection between the Rockefellers and the Bushes..
Prescott Bush: the daughter of Percy A. Rockefeller was
in attendence at Bush's marraige as a bride's maid
Now, what's the connection between this Rockefeller and the Harrimans?
William Rockefeller helped E.H. Harriman acquire a
controlling stake in Union Pacific Railroad
Averell Harriman's father, E.H. Harriman, had arranged to purchase control of Union Pacific Railroad in 1898 using credit arranged and prepared for him by William Rockefeller, father of Percy A. Rockefeller. William Rockefeller was the treasurer of Standard Oil and brother of the founder of the Rockefeller fortune, John D. Rockefeller. William Rockefeller also owned National City Bank (later known as Citibank) together with Texas-based James Stillman. In return for their backing, E.H. Harriman deposited into National City Bank the vast receipts from his railroad lines.
Jacob Schiff, of Kuhn Loeb & Co, also arranged credit for
E.H. Harriman to purchase the Union Pacific Railroad
Credit for the deal was also arranged through Kuhn Loeb & Co's British-affiliated private bankers, Otto Kahn, Jacob Schiff and Felix Warburg. When E.H. Harriman issued "watered" (i.e., fraudulent) railroad stock, Harriman sold most of the shares through the Kuhn Loeb company.
So here now have a connection between the Rockefellers and the Harrimans..
