    Notes 
    • Wayne and Cindy met about 1963 when she and her sister, Marie came to the home of Willie and Anna Bishop just up the road from where Wayne lived. She came with her Uncle Georgie and Aunt Vivian to help paint the roof of the Bishop home. Georgie was Cindy's great uncle on her mother's side and Vivian was the daughter of Willie Bishop. During the painting hours Cindy remembers Wayne coming up and being introduced and she MAY remember looking down the road some to see if he was coming back. She also remembers that week that Anna made some of the best homemade biscuits and apple butter that she ever tasted! Around January 15, 1965 Wayne came to Cindy's home in Wakefield with 2 of his friends to ask her two older sisters to go to a dance that night. The way the story goes is Cindy's mother said that they could go only if Cindy could go with them! (Picture that!! Her mother must have had a very bad day and wanted them all out of the house!!) Cindy ended up going with Wayne to a dance in Ivor, Va. as a triple date when she was a mere 14!! They danced a couple of times, kissed once and the next morning Wayne did not even remember her name!! But he did ask his friends and the rest is history. They dated on and off - MOSTLY ON for the next four and half years. In 1967 Wayne began 4 years in the United States Navy and a lot of their dating was through letters. Wayne gave Cindy a diamond for her High School graduation in May of 1968 and they married a year later in the Wakefield Christian Church just up the street from her home. They lived in San Diego, California for two short stays while Wayne was stationed there in the Navy. When he was discharged they settled in the house that his parents built - the house where Wayne lived until his family of four brothers and sisters traded houses with his Grandmother Chappell just across the field. Wayne and Cindy have lived in this same house on the Chappell Farm in Surry County and at present they have spent 37 happy years there raising two children and now enjoying two grandchildren with one on the way. Wayne is now retired after 38 years with Honeywell (before was Allied Chemical, Allied Signal) and enjoys his days farming, gardening and fixing up things on the farm.
