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.

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.

Glades Memorial Cemetery (A-A)

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: Fairview

Directions: This cemetery is on the east side of Fairview Road (Rt 821) 0.25 mile north of the Fairview Elementary School.

GPS Coordinates: N36.588628 W80.913465

Surveyed by: 12 Jul 2004 by Fran Douglas, updated 15 Jun 2008 by Buford C. Wilson

Comments: This is a very old black cemetery. By tradition the Glades Union Methodist Church was located beside the cemetery. There are many unmarked graves indicated by sunken ground and fieldstones. It appears the older part of the cemetery has no more room for burials.
