Beatrice Farrar attended Central High School of Birmingham, AL and graduated in 1907. During this time her older sister, Emmie, was being courted by her future husband, William Madison Dinsmore, a student of Birmingham Medical College. Beatrice pestered them so much that William Dinsmore asked his best friend, William Charles Farrar, also a student at the Birmingham Medical School, to distract her. Although William Farrar was 10 years her senior, she fell deeply in love with him. On 28 May 1908 she married William, while he was still a student at Birmingham Medical School.
Beatrice was the epitome of the housewife of her era. She raised two surviving children well, took care of her home beautifully and maintained the social life of her prominent physician husband.
Beatrice Martha (Abercrombie) Farrar was the 1st cousin 2 times removed of Pleasant Riggs Crump, through her mother, Frances Ella Godwin Abercrombie. Pleasant Riggs Crump had the distinction of being recognized as the last surviving Civil War Confederate Veteran when he died on 31 Dec 1951. Among other notable events, he was at Appomattox Courthouse to witness the surrender of Gen. Robert E. Lee. See Find A Grave Memorial #13397843.
