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

Unknown Soldier   6 April 1865 [This unknown soldier was found wounded and dying alongside an old road near the Byars cemetery that later became U.S. 58. Because of the animosities between the north and south, local people would not allow him to be buried in any of their cemeteries. Being apprized of the situation, William D. Baldwin said he could be buried in his land. This was the first interment in this cemetery and grave was marked with a field stone until 1978, when the Veterans Administration provided a grave marker designating him as an Unknown Soldier of the Confederate States of America. Since then I have been told he was a Union soldier, which would make more sense. In 1898 William D. Baldwin was buried here and the cemetery became known as the Wm. D. Baldwin Cemetery.]
