Post subject:  Grand River, Newfoundland

I'm looking for information about Grand River. My great-grandmother had "Grand River, Newfoundland" as her birthplace on her marriage record. I've been able to find some other records connecting her (or other relatives) to Codroy Valley, Bay St. George, and Stephensville.

It appears that Grand River may have been neighborhood/area in Bay St. George that no longer exists. Does anyone have any information on the history of Grand River or know where to start looking?

Searston, located on the West Coast in the Codroy area was once called Grand River. Here is a link, from Newfoundland and Labrador gen web, to some historical info on Grand River.

You will find more info on Grand River and it's settlers just by using the search engine on the NL gen web site. Hope this helps.
