A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Grandfather, North Carolina
Although we found mention of Grandfather during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Grandfather was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
One piece of information that we would especially like to find is the location (ie- GPS coordinates) of Grandfather. If you can help us locate Grandfather, please Contact Us.
