Gautiers around Fayetteville N.C. area
My family is from Hope Mills, just south of Fayetteville. Grandfather John David Gautier, Grandmother Myrtle Lee Gautier. Great grandfather Andrew Franklin Gautier. Would love to know any history around this area. At one time heard from an uncle that our original name was Boudet, but changed it to Gautier when emmigrated from France to England to avoid possible persecution. Also heard that long ago relative was a shopkeep? in the Wilmington area. Some family on grandmothers side (Johnson) was in Wilmington.
