The Love Story
It is spring of 1933 when Olivia's uncle, Cody Nelson, comes to stay on the mountain. He had lost his job when the bank that he had worked in closed, and he had decided to visit for a while. He is a very timid man and during his stay John Boy and Grandpa decide to play matchmaker. He meets Cordelia Hunnicut who has been married four times, and much to the disapproval of Grandma and Olivia, love blossoms. He eventually asks for her hand in marriage and Reverend Fordwick performs the marriage ceremony for them before the happy couple return to Ohio.
