It has been assumed Uncle Gran's middle name is Walden, after Walden Mills, but Bobby Joe Mills insisted his grandfather's middle name was Walker.

He was most likely named after his mother Tempy's Uncle Granville O. Mansfield, while Uncle Gran's nephew, Granville Edward "Pet" Mills, was probably named after Uncle Gran. :)

Gran married Mary Magdelina "Maggie" Faulkner, daughter of Billy and Elizabeth Bandy Faulkner.
