We were surprised and delighted to have Ann and Frank Magill visit us from their home in Keene, New Hampshire. They love to come back to Dublin Virginia and the home (Rockwood Manor) of his mother and grandparents. This time they brought Frank’s sister Becky Barnette from North Carolina with them. Her family had just celebrated Becky’s 90th Birthday here and Crystal Magill recently married Chris Jenkins here as well.. So wonderful to have this great group of cousins who so love our family home and to see them grow and prosper in it’s presence.
For over 135 years now this great old family home has been blessed with a variety of family weddings and events.
This weekend we are blessed to have the Magill Family return to the home of their Grandparents.
Crystal Magill will be wed today to Chris Jenkins on the same front lawn as her great grandmother Ellen Howe Bell married Orrin Magill in 1915.
Orrin and Ellen went to China with the YMCA and spent the majority of their early lives together there. Most of the children were born there and the family has grown up all over the world.
Her Grandfather Orrin Magill was born here at Rockwood on one of the families return trips from China.
We wish Crystal and Chris the very best in their future life together. Check out their wedding site . http://magillandjenkins.
We were blessed by the visit of Tripp Bell and Rachel Sparrow last evening and their engagement was announced at the breakfast table this morning as the snow started coming down. What a wonderful announcement and such a lovely couple. An interesting fact is that Tripp is Francis Bell the sixth and as such the namesake of our GGGreat Grandfather and builder of this home Rockwood Manor.
