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.

Little Wilson United Methodist Church Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: Volney

Directions: From Independence take Wilson Hwy (US 58) from Independence to Mouth of Wilson and continue north on US 58/SR 16, staying on Troutdale Hwy (SR 16) at Volney. Watch for a sign on the left for Little Wilson Church and turn west onto Little Wilson Road (Rt 738). The cemetery entrance is about a tenth of a mile south of the Little Wilson Methodist Church. To enter you cross Little Wilson Creek and then drive up a winding driveway through the woods. Once at the top of the hill you will find the cemetery.

GPS Coordinates: N36.631378 W81.406326

Surveyed by: Jeff Weaver, 7 Mar 2003; updated by Ginger Ballard Apr 2008

Comments: The sign approaching Little Wilson Methodist Church Cemetery indicates that the graveyard was established in 1830; however, the first known burial in his cemetery was in 1826. The earliest marked burial found during this survey was 1837. This cemetery appears to have started as a Perkins family cemetery. Much of this information comes from Minnie Hall via Paul Herndon's files.
