Historic (Confirmed)

Rui Zhi, a follower of Sun Jian, was recommended to the position of Administrator of Jiujiang where he presumably held office under the purview of Yuan Shu. He was later transferred to Wu and was regarded well for his administration of both commanderies. It seems he died in the early 190s. (1)
