    Notes 
    • Did you know?

      Mr. George W. Goodrich (1882-1949), grandfather of Norma Goodrich Roach, delivered bottled milk to residents of Dendron. The barn in which he housed his cows is still standing. While Mr. Goodrich milked the cows, his wife Cornelia Neal Whitmore Goodrich (1883-1964), washed and sterilized the bottles. After the milk was strained through cheesecloth, it was bottled and capped with cardboard caps. Then Mr. Goodrich would drive his small one-seated vehicle and his daughter Frances would deliver the bottles of milk to the residents. A quart sold for ten cents and a pint for five cents. One customer wanted only a half pint but refused to pay three cents because it was more than half the cost of a pint!
      Another service offered by Mr. Goodrich: He raked leaves in the yards of people in town free of charge. He used the leaves for bedding in the stalls for his cows.

      My grandfather, George Washington Goodrich (1882-1949), lived in Dendron. He kept 4 or 5 cows at a time and sold and delivered milk house-to--house in Dendron. He used a mule and buggy to deliver the milk. He let children in the community ride with him and they took the milk bottles to the doorsteps. The kids always liked to deliver to Mr. Ernest Rogers' home because he would come out and give them "silvertops" (chocolate kisses). The children also liked to deliver to Mrs. Bunk Hart [Ettie Belle Derring, 1873-1957] because she would give them hot rolls. No one wanted to deliver to Mr. Dickerson because he had turkeys and bad dogs that would chase you.
