- Mary Wood Cook appeared in the US federal census of 15 April 1910 in Montgomery, Montgomery County, Alabama, at 116 South Perry Street. Other members of the household included Florence Blue, John Howard Blue Jr., Kate Blue, Harvey Morris Blue and George Eason Blue.

- The following appeared on 15 June 1912 in The Montgomery Advertiser: Randolph Moore, returning to his business in Waycross, Ga., Friday evening, after a visit to his relatives in Montgomery, took with him a bride. He and Miss Florence Blue of Montgomery were married in Prattville Friday afternoon, to the utter surprise of the families of both.
Mr. Moore and Miss Blue had been in love for some time, it was known, but there was no intimation of the marriage. Friday afternoon they went to Prattville on an automobile ride with friends and it is presumed that the call of the heart and the imminence of Mr. Moore's return to Waycross acted together as persuasive factors toward the immediate culmination of the courtship in marriage. There was no objection to the match on the part of the parents of either of the young people. When the newly married couple telegraphed from Prattville, only surprise was expressed by the relatives in Montgomery, and some disappointment that the two had not decided on a wedding at home.
Randolph Moore is the son of Captain T. H. Moore, of 505 Washington Street. He has been in Waycross, Ga., for some time, engaged in the ice business. He came to Montgomery two weeks ago for a vacation.
Miss Florence Blue is the sister of Dr. J. H. Blue, of Cloverdale. Mr. and Mrs. Randolph Moore did not stop in Montgomery upon their return from their Gretna Green, but went on to Waycross.

Mrs. Blue said she had the grandest time and that she particularly enjoyed a ride of 1200 miles that she made on the Pan American in 31 hours. Mrs. Blue always derives so much pleasure from her trips and talks so interestingly about them that her friends are doubly glad when she comes back home.
