ITS THE 1700'S AND THE WILDMAN FAMILY WAS ENGLISH AND WHITE. TWO BROTHERS EMBARKED ON JAMAICA, HAVING ESTATES THOMAS WILDMAN ESQ AND WILLIAM BECKFORD WILDMAN ESQ, TWO SONS OF JOHN WILDMAN (POSTMASTER GENERAL) HAVING CHILDREN WITH THE JAMAICANS MIXING BLOOD THEY WERE DIS-OWNED AND WITH WHAT ASSETS THE OBTAINED LEFT TO THEIR CHILDREN, ALL CHILDREN MIXED OR NOT. VERY HONEST AND NOBEL. 1800'S JAMES LUSHINGTON WILDMAN ESQ AND JOHN SISNETT WILDMAN ESQ APPEAR ON GRENADA. NO HISTORY FOR JAMES HAS BEEN FOUND AS YET BUT JOHN SISNETT WILDMAN HAVING ONE WIFE AGNUS CRUICKSHANK AND TWO MISTRESSES, ANNE AULD, VICTORIA ALEXANDER, , PRODUCE FOUR CHILDREN JOHN SISNETT WILDMAN JR WITH AGNUS CRUICKSHANK, GEORGE ALEXANDER WILDMAN, THOMAS ESMOND MCALPINE WILDMAN AND ISEBELLA ANNE WILDMAN WITH VICTORIA ALEXANDER, SAMUAL GOLITH WILDMAN WITH ANNE AULD . ALL HAVING THEIR OFFSPRINGS AS WELL. BROTHERS ONE BEING WHITE AND OTHER BLACK, COUSINS BEING BLACK AND WHITE. THE TALE TO BE TOLD. THOMAS ESMOND MCALPINE WILDMAN A BLACK MAN BEING PRESENT DURING HIS FATHERS LEGACY SCHOOLED HIMSELF AND EDJUCATED HIMSELF AS TO HOW TO HANDLE SUCH WEALTH. LEARNED THIS THROUGH DOCUMENTS AND THROUGH FAMILY DISCUSSION. I HAVE LEARNED HE WAS THE ONE WHO DIRECTED THE CONTROL OF SUCH WEALTH AS THEY OBTAINED. THIRTEEN ESTATES NOT TO MENTION TWO PRIVATE ISLANDS AND A BUSINESS ON WALL STREET IN THE EARLY 1900'S, 220 CHILDREN BORN WITH THE WILDMAN NAME SINCE JOHN SISNETT WILDMAN SR AND MOST NOT AWARE THE THEIR HERITAGE NOR THE THEFT OF THEIR INHERITANCE DUE. THOMAS ESMOND MCALPINE WILDMAN LEFT IN PLACE IN 1955 A LOCK TIGHT TRUST BUILT ON A FIVE HUNDRED YEAR LEASE FROM JOHN CAMPBELL IN 1867 NAMING AND DECLARING HOW THIS TREMENDIOUS ESTATE WAS TO BE HANDLED AS WELL AS ANUITIES BUT, ATTORNEYS BARRISTERS AND SOLISITORS ON GRENADA USED THEIR POSTIONS AND INFLUANCE TIED WITH THE FIRST INTERNATIONAL BANK OF GRENADA SCAM TO ROB AND CONTINUE TO ROB THE ESTATE TILL DATE. MY AUNT SONIA JOHNSON NEE WILDMAN RESENTLY DIED POOR AS WELL AS HER SISTER DELORIS WILDMAN. HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT SO MANY FAMILIES OF MIXED HERITAGE END UP LIKE THIS AND THE FRAUDSTERS REEP THE HARVEST WITH NO PUNISHMENT! I AM NOT SPEAKING JUST FOR MY FAMILY BUT FOR ALL MULLATOES

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

ONE LOVE
