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.

This is a picture of the Emory Phipps family. Based on information I've researched, I believe the following to be true: Emory Phipps is seated with Thomas Phipps on his lap, his wife Ida Perry Phipps is holding Delmar Emory Phipps on her lap with daughters Elva Phipps Sage and Ora Phipps Hamby. One of the two standing boys is Roscoe Phipps and the other is unknown - not sure which is which. I believe this picture was taken in 1912 because Ida died in May 1912. Any information about the individuals in the picture would be greatly appreciated. Picture submitted by great granddaughter Lynn Sexton Gallegos
