"She had went to Missy's parents to console them...."
Shouldn't it be "She had gone to...."?
Hits in my corpus are rare, but there are some:
"as soon as he had went away from his mother's house"
"Sense and Sensibility" - Jane Austen
"the very next mornin' after I had went down stairs"
"Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" - Mark Twain
"every spare penny he had went on books"
"The Garden-Party" - Katherine Mansfield
"The meanewhyle Morgan le Fay had wente kynge
Arthure had bene dede."
"But sir Dynadan had wente the Haute Prynce
had bene more weryar than he was"
"Le Morte d'Arthur" - Sir Thomas Malory (1485)
In the last case, I'm not sure if »had wente" is
out modern "had went".
