FWNB Realty probably had a lot to do with the title to the Fort Wayne Bank Building among others, which was held by an Oklahoma Board of Directors for exactly 25 years following the death of Frank Kryder.

Evans Estate which the bank and Evans' lawyer and accountant inherited.

It appears the Judge didn't really sign the Order of Final Distribution, but it occurred nevertheless.

1985 Lincoln Financial Corporation, the former "Lincoln Tower Corp" holding company for Lincoln National Bank & Trust (Moody's), merged into Norwest which merged into "Wells Fargo Indiana National Association." A New "Tower Bank" was created.

The double made its way back to the U.S. for a merger into MetLife 3/25/1993. American United Life In 1997 foreclosed on Fort Wayne's 1985 "Tower Partnership" for the Lincoln Tower mortgage which was $2,000,000 delinquent. The Tower, like Redstone Castle, was auctioned for a song.
