I've heard that.

If we need any verification, we are running out of time and people. Maybe Betty Lynn or Ron Howard could affirm it. I believe it is true.

I have heard Allan refer to that on various occasions. 

Actually the Mayberry history page confirms it. 

  • “Andy Griffith's father, Carl Griffith, is seen exiting the mens clothing store where Jeff Pruitt buys 'the largest (suit) one they had.”

The man seems slim enough to be Don Knott's dad, not Andy's.
