The Inn at Woodstock

Hartfield, Virginia

Woodstock Farm is a river front estate still held by the Lincoln family heirs in Middlesex County Virginia. The historic Federal Mansion, situated on the Piankatank River was built around 1840. The grand property was purchased as a family home in 1920 by the youngest granddaughter of Abraham Lincoln, Jessie Lincoln Beckwith.
The Inn at Woodstock is a unique example of the Federal Style with its set back Portico and widow's walk overlooking the river. The 10 acres of manicured grounds surrounding the home were designed by Mrs. Beckwith, an avid gardener. She had a boxwood garden planted at the back of the grounds, which is presently being restored to its former style. A lane of Crepe Myrtle trees dating to the 1920's lines the drive approaching the house.

New York Times - TITANIC SURVIVORS MARRY - 2 March 1913

God is in the details.

The bride, who walked up the nave with her stepfather, Mr. Beckwith, who gave her in marriage, wore a gown of white satin charmeuse with a long veil of duches point that was draped in with the gown in pannier effect, the lace being carried down into a train. The gown was also trimmed with duchess lace. She carried lilies of the valley and white orchids.

The bridesmaids were Miss Gertrude Behr, a sister of the bridegroom, and Miss Beatrice Cook. They wore frocks of palest eau de nil chiffon over very pale pink and hats of white lace, having pink bows and all sorts of odd little Spring flowers caught in bunches here and there. They carried large bouquets of Spring flowers.

The Hitachi Foundation
"Nadiya's perspective as a multi-racial person has helped her to grasp the complexities of racism in the United States and helped her to see both sides of the issue. Because of this she has become a powerful and effective peer educator and organizer to bring diverse groups together to work to dismantle systemic racism at her school and throughout the Seattle School District."

Mother of the father of the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra.


Oscar & Ellie Beckwith Stringfield


Ellie Beckwith, wife of Oscar Larkin Stringfield daughter of Calvin Beckwith, grand-daughter of Green Beckwith, and great-grand-daughter of Isaac Beckwith, who was my 4th great-grandfather -- making her my 2nd cousin, 3 times removed -- was the mother of the father of the North Carolina Symphony. No wonder I sometimes whistle.

Pulitzer Traveling Fellowship recipient and North Carolina native Lamar Stringfield had a passion for music. In the early 1930's, Stringfield envisioned what would become his legacy. His deep love for music and performing arts consumed Stringfield's every ounce of devotion as he tried to assemble an orchestra. Through Stringfield's hard work and the dedication of many volunteers, the North Carolina Symphony was formed in 1932. On March 16, 1932, the new North Carolina Symphony Orchestra performed its first formal concert at Meredith College auditorium in Raleigh. Comprised initially of unpaid musicians from local communities, and even some individuals from as far away as Richmond, Virginia, the Symphony and small factions had performed more than 140 concerts in 50 towns and cities around North Carolina by 1935.
