Trivia: Cornelius Roosevelt was a charter member of what now-defunct bank?
The correct answer is Chemical Bank
So why is this answer correct? : Chemical Bank was originally chartered as a subsidiary of the New York Chemical Manufacturing Company in 1824. Twenty years later, in 1844, it was reconstituted as a state bank. Cornelius Roosevelt, Theodore’s grandfather, was one of the first directors of the bank, which is now part of the Chase Manhattan Corporation.
