    Waldemar Conrad von Zedtwitz was believed killed at the Battle of Verdun while serving in the German army, but instead resurfaced in the 1920's to claim his mother's inheritance. The property was seized during WW I by the Alien Property Offfice. After much litigation, it was restored to him. In 1928, the property was sold to the city and became Bowman Field and Seneca Park. The property was part of the original holdings of John Floyd and Jane Buchanan, which passed to the Breckinridge family after Jane's second marriage to Alexander Breckinridge."
