Old Money Families

I mean really Old Money. What families are still living off what their robber baron ancestor stole generations ago?\ \ Not Johnny come lately trash like the Kennedys or the Trumps or the Bushes, I''m talking fortunes that pre-date the Civil War and are still more or less in tact. And I''m not talking about someone who is worth a few million because they never sold the family farm (or plantation), I''m talking steel, railroads, and timber--Ben Cartwright for openers.\ \ There''s the DuPonts and the Astors, but I''m coming up with a pretty short list. Who else is out there? Or have time, taxation, poor breeding and divorces taken their toll on even the richest old families?
