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

John Frost Cemetery

Carroll County, Virginia

Sulphur Springs District

Location: Hebron Community

Directions: On the west side of Rt. 635 (Hebron Road), 1.7 miles north of Rt. 887 (Glendale Road), a short distance from the end of Roseberry Lane.

GPS Coordinates: N 36.718332 W 80.895640

Surveyed by: Buford C. Wilson; 29 Aug 1999, Updated 12 Apr 2010; buford-wilson@outlook.com

Comments: The cemetery is located on land that was part of John Frost’s farm. As you travel through the fields to the cemetery you will pass by an old slave cemetery. There are no marked graves there.

John Frost enlisted as a soldier in the Revolutionary War in 1777. He served for five years at several different locations, including Valley Forge, where he was a guard at George Washington’s Camp.

After the war he traveled to North Carolina where on June 8 1786, he married a lady named Mary. Her last name is unknown. Some people believe she was the daughter of William Carico, but there is no proof that this is so. Other researchers think John Frost was the son of Ezekiel Frost and Alice Hopkins and that he married Mary Fannin, who was the daughter of John Fannin Sr. and Elizabeth Lipps. John and Mary had eleven children: Stephen-Alice-Ezekiel-Isabell-John-Elizabeth-Sarah-James-Rebecca-Jonas-Simeon.

Some of the old markers have been lost in time and it is difficult to find the location or number of unmarked graves. John and Mary’s markers have been lost. A government marker was erected for John in 1976. Mary’s grave is unmarked. The cemetery is well fenced but it is abandoned. Information in [brackets] is not on the stone.
