I think what you are saying is that your great grandfather (your grandmother's father) bought a house and your grandother paid the mortgage. Throughout the entire time of ownership your great grandfather never added your grandmother (or anyone else) to the deed - nor did he specify in a will that your grandmother would solely inherit the property.
I think your great grandfather, by NOT doing anything, left the property to all of his children.
I am not an attorney and this should not be taken as legal advice - Please seek legal counsel.
Best of luck,
