Grindle Bridge
Posted November 9, 2010, by janie wigley (janiewigley1 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

My grandmother was a Grindle. From the time I was a baby - I'm 57 now - until my early 20's, our family would drive from Rock Chapel, Georgia every couple of weeks to Ma's house on the Chestatee River and then on to visit our many aunts and uncle. We had to cross the Grindle Bridge and also the bridge at the old Copper Mine. The old Copper Mine bridge was the scariest because if I remember correctly, it was a wooden bridge. My grandmother was Mrs. W.D. Carder.
