Sympathy Saturday - Warren Wallace Beckwith

Probably Warren Beckwith's main claim to fame was his ill-fated 1897 first marriage to Jessie Lincoln, daughter of Robert and granddaughter of Abraham Lincoln.  Jessie's parents highly disapproved of the marriage and it lasted ten years before their divorce in 1907.

Warren Wallace Beckwith was born about August 10 1874 and died on September 24, 1955 in California.

His Find-A-Grave memorial can be found here.
