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.

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.

Potato Creek Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: West of Cox's Chapel on Potato Creek Rd.

Directions: The cemetery is on the south side of Potato Creek Rd (Rt 708) across from Potato Creek United Methodist Church. From Wilson Hwy (US 58) go south on County Line Rd (SR 93). Turn left (east) on Potato Creek Rd. The cemetery is about 2.5 miles from intersection. The cemetery can also be reached by heading south from Wilson Hwy (US 58) on Bridle Creek Rd (Rt 601). From the junction of Cox's Chapel Rd (still Rt 601) and Potato Creek Rd head west on Potato Creek Rd about 2.5 miles.

GPS Coordinates: N36.583870 W81.279137

Surveyed by: Ginger and Rich Ballard, Jeff Weaver and Susan Taylor Woodson, 14 March 2003; updated 10 Apr 2008.

Comments: This cemetery predates Potato Creek United Methodist Church, which was established in 1865 with the oldest marked grave being that of Mary A. Halsey who died 8 Oct 1845. The cemetery contains an old section of graves marked only by field stones; this section is said to be a slave cemetery. The church is no longer active but was part of the Western North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church. This listing also includes information from a 1994-1995 survey by Stella Todd and Emma Phipps.
