FROM THE PAST
The words “elope”, “eloping”, “eloped” bring to mind a few different meanings (depending on your age -smile).
Years ago the southern culture in Greenville was more formal than today. When young lovers wanted to get married, they sought their parents approval.. If the parents did not agree, the lovebirds (being driven by the passion of their undying love) would visit a justice of the peace to get married. Then they would run away together and elope.
