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

New River Notes

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.

new river valley mapNew River Notes was originally launched in 1998 by Jeffrey C. Weaver providing New River Valley researchers with a new wealth of information and that tradition is continued today by the Grayson County, Virginia Heritage Foundation, Inc.

Welcome and we hope you enjoy our new look. For more information on the changes and plans see posts on the GCVHF Google+ Page.

Cabin Creek Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location:  Approximately 2 miles north of Mt Rogers High School

Directions:  From the junction of Highlands Pkwy (US Hwy 58) and Cabin Creek Ln (Rt 749) go 0.2 mile north on Cabin Creek Ln to cemetery on left side of road.

GPS Coordinates:  N36.6116 W81.5218

Surveyed by:  Mr. and Mrs. William Hensley 9 May 1992

Comments:  The cemetery is visible approx 500 ft up slope from the road. It was fenced and tended. An unverified story says, Lee Massie carred a dead child from Massie's Gap during a blizzard. He couldn't go any farther, so E.C. Osborne permitted him to bury this child on his farm. This became the first grave in the graveyard. No one remembers the grave location.
