My grandfather, Robert Ford Pruitt, never informed the family about his parentage.  He was born in NC and died in GA at my father's home, and is buried in NC.  He was noted in a census record to be living with his grandparents, Henry and Almira Pruitt.  In another census he is noted as a stepson to John W and Ida Florence Pruitt Gauldin.  Note: Ida is the daughter of Henry and Almira.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Well, that's a hole isn't it?  On his draft registration card he lists "unknown" as his father's birthplace indicating he probably never knew his father given that his LNAB is his mother's LNAB.  There isn't a North Carolina birth record that I can find.  I find a marriage record for Ida to the step-father, John Gauldin, but none before that. I would suggest this was an accidental pregnancy and the father was never in the picture.
