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

Surveyed by: Anita Salcido and Violet White on 22 Feb 1992 and Juanita H. Watson on a later date.

Comments: The cemetery is located in the Elon Community at Stephens Creek. On the way to the cemetery, you pass the old home place of Creed Carrico built in the 1800's. The house contains twelve rooms with pine boards six to eight inches wide and hand hewn with an axe. Permission must be obtained to visit the cemetery. The cemetery is located on top of a hill, encircled by a chain link fence and beautiful magnificent old trees. Near the center of the cemetery is a very large stone with the names, years of birth, and death dates of Rev. William Carrico's children engraved on it. Several grandchildren are also buried in the cemetery. Around the large stone are smaller stones or flat stones with either initials or names engraved on them. There was a section on the back side of the cemetery that at one time had field stones marking graves. These field stones were removed by a caretaker at an earlier date and these stones were placed at the edge of the fence so he could mow there and when he finished mowing, he forgot where the stones went. The stones were never put back.
