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.

Independence Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: Independence

Directions: From Main St (US 58) just west of North Independence Ave (US 21) turn right into the Independence Methodist Church parking lot and drive behind the church.

GPS Coordinates: N36.623166 W81.154642

Surveyed by: Ginger Ballard Apr 2003; updated Aug 2008 by Gil Wetmore.

Comments: This cemetery is fairly well maintained although several stones have fallen and a few are broken. Some flat markers are in danger of disappearing and death dates on some upright markers are below ground. There are an indeterminate number of unmarked graves at this site.

The Independence Cemetery is divided into a North and South section. The North Section is listed first below. This is the older part of the cemetery. The newer South Section is nearer the church and has a loop access road around it.
