Stirring further confusion about Rockefeller Group in the minds of some government officials earlier this year was the arrival of one Nicholas Rockefeller, a Los Angeles attorney, who says he appealed to Shanghai Mayor Han Zheng to take over the project. He says he suggested to the mayor that his name would make it easy to adjust any contracts.

Nicholas Rockefeller declined to say where in the Rockefeller family he fits. But the family’s patriarch, David Rockefeller, said through an associate that he doesn’t recall ever meeting Nicholas. The relationship “is probably quite distant, seventh or eighth cousins,” according to the associate, Peter Johnson.
