1. William J. Robertson of home bar
William Joseph Robertson (December 20, 1817 May 27, 1898) was born in Culpeper County, Virginia in 1817.
He attended the University of Virginia from 1834 to 1836 and again in 1841. After graduating, he was admitted to the bar in 1843, settled in Charlottesville to practice law, and won election as Commonwealth's Attorney for Albemarle County, Virginia in 1852. His Charlottesville home, the Judge William J.
Robertson House, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1999. Robertson prosecuted the trial of John S. Mosby, who was accused of shooting another student.
Mosby claimed self-defense, but was convicted and sent to jail. Afterward, Robertson became a friend and mentor to Mosby, who kept a portrait of Robertson on the wall of his home. In 1859, Robertson was elected to the Court of Appeals on which he served until 1865, when Virginia's post-war governor declined to reappoint him to the reorganized court.
In 1860, on the death of Peter V. Daniel, some Virginians lobbied for President James Buchanan to select Robertson for the United States Supreme Court. Returning to private practice, he was attorney in many important cases involving the interests of Virginia and her citizens following the war.
Most famous among these was his representation of the Lee family in the Arlington estate case. He also was known as an accomplished railroad lawyer, serving as general counsel for the Norfolk & Western and as a board member of the Chesapeake & Ohio railroads. Judge Robertson was a charter member and the first president of the Virginia Bar Association, whose first annual meeting was held at White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia on August 24 and 25, 1889.
In his presidential address, Robertson recommended the merger of law and equity in Virginia civil procedure,. His ideas "fell like a thunderbolt on some of his hearers," reported the editor of the Virginia Law Journal, who concluded, "I doubt they will recover their serenity in a year." The merger of law and equity in Virginia was accomplished, only partially, more than 100 years after his death.
2. Patrick Duigenan of home bar
Patrick Duigenan, KC, FTCD (173511 April 1816), Irish lawyer and politician, was the son of a Leitrim Catholic farmer surnamed Duibhgeannin. Through the tuition of the local Protestant clergyman, who was interested in the boy, he got a scholarship in 1756 at Trinity College, Dublin, and subsequently became a fellow.
At some point he joined the Anglican faith. He studied law at the Middle Temple, was called to the Irish bar in 1767 and obtained a rich practice, mainly in the area of law relating to tithes. At that time tithes were levied from the majority Roman Catholic population for the benefit of the minority Church of Ireland, and were consequently unpopular.
In spite of his Anglican convictions, he provided his Catholic wife with a chapel at their home and arranged for a priest to say Mass for her on Sundays. He opposed the Maynooth Grant and was appointed Grand Secretary of the Orange Order in 1801. He is remembered, however, mainly as a politician, on account of his opposition to Grattan, his support of the Union, and his violent antagonism to Catholic emancipation, both in the Irish House of Commons and in pamphlets.
As a Member of Parliament (MP), he represented Old Leighlin one of the Bishops boroughs of the Irish Parliament between 1791 and 1798 and subsequently Armagh Borough until 1801. He sat then for Armagh City in the first Parliament of the United Kingdom. He was an Irish Privy Counsellor from 1808 and a well-known character at Westminster until he died on 11 April 1816.
He had married twice; firstly around 1782, to Angelina, daughter of Thomas Berry of Eglish Castle, Kings County, and secondly, on 2 October 1807, Hester Watson, the widow of George Heppenstall, solicitor to the Dublin police, of Sandymount. He had no children by either marriage.

4. Niebylec, Podkarpackie Voivodeship of home bar
Niebylec blts is a village in Strzyw County, Subcarpathian Voivodeship, in south-eastern Poland. It is the seat of the gmina (administrative district) called Gmina Niebylec.
Niebylec lies in eastern part of historic Lesser Poland, approximately 10 kilometres (6Â mi) south-east of Strzyw and 22Â km (14Â mi) south of the regional capital Rzeszw. The village has a population of 594, and is located along National Road Nr. 9, which also makes Polish part of the European route E371.
Niebylec, even though a village now, used to be a town from 1509 until 1919. In the 15th and 16th centuries, the village, known at that time as Jawornik, belonged to the noble Machowski family (Abdank coat of arms). Jawornik received Magdeburg rights in 1509, due to efforts of Mikolaj Machowski of Machow.
The town was part of Lesser Polands Sandomierz Voivodeship, remaining a small location in the eastern outskirts of the province, close to the border with Red Ruthenia. In 1646, a new Roman Catholic church was built here by Niebylecs new owner, Janusz Romer. In the late 17th and the 18th centuries, the town belonged to several families.
Niebylec was one of the centers of the Bar Confederation, and in 1772 (see Partitions of Poland), it was annexed by the Habsburg Empire, as part of Galicia. In the 19th century, the number of Jews grew in Niebylec, and by the early 20th century, they made the majority of the population. Niebylec lost its charter in 1919, as it was too small to remain a town.
During World War II, Jewish population was decimated in the Holocaust. The area of the village was a stronghold of the Home Army (AK), as part of AKs Rzeszow- South Inspectorate. Niebylec has a parish church, built in 19361943 on the spot of the location of the 1646 church.
In the village there also is a synagogue (second half of the 19th century), which now houses a library. Furthermore, the village has a 15th-century manor house, rebuilt in the 18th and 19th centuries, and a late 18th-century roadside chapel.
Very Idham Henyansyah of home bar
Very Idham Henyansyah (born 1 February 1978), also known as Ryan, is an Indonesian convicted serial killer. Henyansyah confessed to killing 11 people and was sentenced to death by the Indonesia criminal court after being arrested in 2008. He is awaiting execution at Kesambi Penitentiary in Cirebon.
Henyansyah case achieved notoriety throughout Indonesia due to the gruesome nature of the murders. Known for his uncontrollable temper, Ryan continuously bashed the heads of a mother and her child with a metal bar to death after they made him angry. The body of one of the victims was found at a roadside in Jakarta cut up into seven pieces and was skewered with a crowbar.
Henyansyah buried his other victims' bodies in the backyard of his home in Jombang Regency in East Java. After his arrest, Henyansyah became known as the "singing serial killer", entertaining the court officers, fellow inmates, and media audience from his jail cell by singing a song from his upcoming album. In February 2009, Henyansyah released an autobiography titled The Untold Story of Ryan.
In the autobiography, Henyansyah indicated that he was formerly a Qur'an recital teacher and later became a male model. Henyansyah is openly homosexual and has confessed that most of his victims were also homosexual men. He admitted to killing one of his victims after the victim offered him money and a car to have sex with his boyfriend.
However, in October 2010, Henyansyah announced that he was planning to marry a female convicted drug dealer, Eny Wijaya, whom he had met in 2008 when they were both detained at the Jakarta Police Narcotics Detention Center. Eny Wijaya was released from Pondok Bambu Penitentiary around September 2010. One of his stated reasons for marrying Eny Wijaya, despite being homosexual, is to fulfill his mother's wish that he be married to a woman.
