New River Notes — Complete

January 21, 2014

After about two years of work we have completed a major upgrade to New River Notes. On January 21, 2014 we switched in the last of the updated files and final page revisions.

In January 2013 we introduced the new site layout but because there were many pages left to do there was a big red Under Construction on the front page. A year later we've finished all of the pages that were on the original site. Construction is complete. We have a great looking site full of material to help you in your research and possibly entertain you.

We're not finished. A site like this can't just freeze in time. It must be maintained, .... Read More

January 6, 2013

New River Notes, a leading genealogy resource for the New River Valley of North Carolina and Virginia, launched its new look website today.

The Robert L. Perry Cemetery

Alleghany County, North Carolina

Location:  Fred Weaver Road off 113 via 1300.

Directions:  If you park at the old campground it is a short walk to the trail to the top of the hill. The trail is marked by an old cable stretched across it, but easily crossed. The directions from the Alleghany cemetery listings state that it is on the left, toward the mouth of the creek. It is opposite the creek and other small family cemeteries are along this road, some well hidden from the road by the woods. You cross the cable and follow the path to the top of the hill.

GPS Coordinates:  -

Surveyed by:  Tom Perry

Comments:  The Robert L. Perry cemetery is located in Alleghany County, North Carolina. I visited there myself in August of 1996 and copied names and dates from the legible stones. I have clear photographs of some. Numerous other UNMARKED or ILLEGIBLE gravestones are present. The graveyard was well tended , fenced, and mown on my last visit. This includes all the legible names that were found there.
