Green and "Betty"Elizabeth Caudill,Green were not in favor.A plan was therefore decided upon and acction was taken.On the day of their wedding there was an activity going on at the Rockcastle schoolhouse and the Greens attended.During the activity John came to the schoolhouse with horses and gave signal for Rachel and her friends Lidge Nicholson and Sarah craft to come outside.The girls appearing to only be leaving only momentarily left with John.At a predetermined location a cousin of John's, a Baptist preacher named William H. Bruner was to meet them.On the way who should meet them but Rachel's brother George Green who asked where they were going.They told him it was none of his business and went on.The rest of the story is on the marriage certificate.Dec.4,1891 "At the top of stony point in the county road" From William W.
