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.

Patton Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: The Patton Cemetery is north of Galax near the New River

Directions: This cemetery in Grayson County Virginia, is located beside Rt. 641 (Pattons Mill Lane), 1.3 miles from Rt. 634 (Waterwheel Road). The cemetery is on the west side of the road as you approach New River.

GPS Coordinates: N 36.67708 W 080.97289

Surveyed by: Buford Wilson Mar 2000; updated 16 Jul 2008

Comments: This cemetery is on land that was owned by John Patton Sr., his first wife, Nancy Ann (Johnson) Patton, and his second wife Thursa (Segar) Noblitt Patton. The land was passed on to John Patton Sr’s son, Hosea Patton, and his wife Elizabeth (Hill) Patton. The land then went to Hosea Patton's daughter, Nancy Patton, and then to Nancy’s son, Thomas Patton, and his children. Mrs. Orpha Mae (Patton) Leagan was the last Patton to own this land, when it was sold in 1967.There are many unmarked graves in this cemetery. Some of these may be spaces where the remains were removed to another cemetery when a proposed hydro-electric dam would have covered this entire area with water. The dam project was eventually cancelled.
