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.

Liberty Hill Baptist Church Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: Grant Community

Directions: From the junction of Flatridge Rd (Rt 658) and Troutdale Hwy (SR 16) go north 0.7 mile on Troutdale Hwy. The cemetery is behind the church on the east side of Troutdale Hwy. Both are visible from the road.

GPS Coordinates: N36.669014 W81.405975

Surveyed by: Jeff Weaver on 7 Mar 2003

Comments: The cemetery is maintained by the church and is kept and well fenced. Parts of the cemetery are on steeply sloping ground, which may make standing difficult. There are 157 graves in this cemetery, marked by traditional grave stone or concrete blocks. The oldest burial dates from 1861. The cemetery apparently was established ca 1895-98 with the older markers having have been moved from elsewhere.
