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.

We have a great looking site full of material to help you in your research and possibly entertain you.

noahbarker.jpg877 viewsThis is Noah Barker of Ashe Co. NC According to my family Noah was a blind musician, a fiddle player. He was married to Leah Pendergrass and they were in some way related to the Harrison Pendergrass family. My great-grandfather Harrison Pendergrass and his family adopted the surname Barker. According to the 1870 and 1880 cesnsus records Noah Barker was born abt. 1825. The census records also note that Noah was blind and a musician. I would love to hear from anyone who may know more about Noah Barker or the Pendergrasses from Horse Creek in Ashe Co.
