    Notes 
    • Sam Pete was a cripple and slept in feather bed in Snow Hill Plantation in the corner bedroom on the 1st floor. Last Booth to live in Snow Hill Plantation. His bedroom was in the rear 'T' addition on the back that is now gone. Hettie is buried in the old section of Waverly Cemetary. He lived at Snow Hill all his life.

      He had the first rubber tired buggy ever seen in Surry County.

      Courted Hettie Lee Rogers * (1874-1964) for 25+ years but never married. She bought 3 trousseaus. She was a graduate of the Southern Female College in Petersburg along with Ora Sue Baird. Sam Pete used to cut across the field carrying a lantern going to Hettie Rogers house which was was at Laurel Rd and Rt. 40. She was quite well off and had a large plantation house. Quote: in 1935 when the town of Waverly put in a sewer sytem, she refused to connect as she had no inside bath. Pat O'gery the town supervisor (he stuttered) told her it was the law and he could force her to. She told him "You can make me put one in, but you can't make me use it". She had electric lights and used lanterns.

      Sam Pete was quite a drinker...per Kenneth Coker.

      From Doris Jean Goodrich Johnson: I do recall Tilly (Edith (Tilly) Louise Goodrich Westbrook) saying that Mama used to prepare food for Sam Pete and Tillie would deliver it to him while Mama watched her as she crossed the field going to and coming from the delivery. [2]
