for some unknown reason gone outside his villa and was found dead in the road at the foot of the 25 feet high wall surrounding the villa.

According to The New York Times the marriage of Duke Heinrich Borwin and Elizabeth Pratt which took place in Dover, Kent in 1911 was declared null and void in 1913 by a special court in Rostock as the Duke's guardian had not consented to it.
In June 1921 two of Elizabeth's children filed a suite against her and Alien Property Custodian to recover a sum of money, $63 thousand each which had been seized by the Alien Property Custodian. The Alien Property Custodian, was responsible for receiving, holding, administering, and accounting for all money and property in the United States due or belonging to an enemy, or ally of enemy.
