"The claimants are all descendants of one man (Rainmaker) who had three sons and a daughter (Kwetyaneke). Two of the three sons (Joe Rose and Bilya) had children. Joe Rose is the father of claimants Dubbo Rose, Juntu, Ned Rose, Topsy, and Jenny (Arigeeni)."
"Lindsay Bookie explained that this country was owned by Akwakelye (King Peter), and that when he died George Quartpot (his stepson) took over. Quartpot is getting old and has no one within his immediate family who has substantial knowledge of the country and who can take over for him, but as long as George Quartpot is alive, he is the boss for the country, and after his death Dubbo Rose, Juntu, and Patcherly and Lindsay Bookie will take it over for the next generation."
