    • The way that he and grandmother left to get married is a classic, just like a romantic novel. On a cold, blustery, snowy 28th day of January, 1907, Grandfather, at the stroke of midnight, placed a ladder against the side of the farmhouse and grandmother climbed down to go marry Herbert. They took the horse and carriage that he had waiting through three (3) feet of snow to the train station in Waverly, Virginia. There they took a train to Halifax, NC and stayed at the Roanoke Hotel, where they were married by J. L. Fenner, Justice of the Peace on January 28th, 1907. Mrs. W. A. Sater was both the proprietress and witness. Mary Virginia Horne Howard remembers that the next morning, one of the kids went downstairs and told their mother, Ella Gertrude Booth Goodrich that Pinkie (Mary Goodrich) wasn't in her room. As the family started to search for her, her father Benjamin Taylor Goodrich, said,' there ain't no need to look for her, she's run away to get married, haven't you seen her making all these new clothes?'. Mary Virginia doesn't remember which of the kids told their mother about Pinkie (Mary) being gone. However it was the one that slept in the room with Mary Goodrich and my guess would be Stella, as they were the closest of the kids and remained so throughout life.
