A long and successful courtship was sealed by matrimony in October 1909. George F. Brevier was a hardworking ranch owner from Portland, Oregon. He came to Bristol to meet a lady with whom he’d been corresponding for some time. The two only knew one another through letters. Her name was Lizzie L. Ballou, a resident of Chilhowie, Virginia.

The two made a simple agreement before they met. If they liked one another at that first meeting, they would marry. She waited for him at the station in Bristol. Luckily, the attraction was instant and they were married as soon as they found an official. The happy couple then returned to Oregon to live the rest of their days.
