Despoti all! Lord thou seest which Barretts, Bonds, and Ewings keep what belongs to Katherine Ann Kryder.

Some years after the North American Exploitation Company had arranged its fold of investors, it became a problem for certain banks around America when stockholders with interests originating in the Depression era got old and died.

In Fort Wayne,the Barretts, Bonds, and Ewings like any oligarchical clan, were not about to let go of what they believed was theirs by right of having been the Northern Indiana territory's earliest corporate terrorists, and as well players on the original North American Exploitation team. Theirs was the eldest bank in Indiana, a great big dirty rotten pepsybank no less- teeming with funneled Indian property, interest collected since 1835 on coal loans, chattel property of the desperate, and doomed-from-the start farm loan foreclosures; a bank bursting with goods taken of estates with missing or no heirs, in a scheme which must be elaborated for the sake of truth and salvation, and for which Allen County, Indiana no doubt will be made famous.

Rosemary Kryder, Frank Jr.'s first daughter born in 1924, remained in Fort Wayne as she grew up, and her presence was made even more conspicuous by the steady stream of lawsuits from her mother Rose for ever increasing Kryder financial support. So when Rosemary came of marriageable age, like clockwork along came James Ewing Bond, which marriage took care of any bank stock she may have inherited through the senior Kryders in 1933, and insured it would return to the Bond stronghold. Rose Phillips, as she later became, worked in the Allen County Auditor's Office until 1962.

But Rosemary Bond's half sister, Katherine, of 1931 vintage, was taken away to a part of Florida in 1940 where there weren't any Ewings or Bonds, and didn't fare as well.

James M. Barrett III (Jimmy, or Jim-bo to the personal representative) did James Ewing Bond's estate work, probably right in The Standard Building and the two are, or were, in the Kryder Century the best of buddies, attending basketball games together, while Rosemary claims she knows nothing about any Kryders and in fact won't even talk to the Personal Representative about any Kryders or Dislers.

The Bonds live "behind the hedge" in Elkhart, Indiana where our North American Half-cousin, Richard E. Bond, quite a well-fed and contented fellow enjoying a $350,000.000 salary with regular gifts of stock as a vice-president of Monaco Coach, a Navistar subsidiary, has absolutely no concern about missing assets of his grandfather...

Frank Kryder Sr. with his granddaughter Katherine the Gypped:
the Kryder Century- where the wound of lost kin never healed, and American heritage became a thing of despots whose hearts put mutual funds on an equal footing with God.
