Guy Greene (nephew) took over Hannan's roll in the Russell Island Company. I have no more information about him yet but, I have seen his name on many libers as an RIC Officer.


I believe that Flavius Brooke III took over control of his grandfather's roll in the Russell Island Company. For how long I do not know.


Fred Buesser Jr. was in control of the Russell Island Company when it closed in 1957.
