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.

CBdeerhunting.jpg1153 viewsMy grandfather was born in 1889 and in this picture he looks to be in his 40s at most, so I guess this scene was in the 1930s, and though he had lived in Maryland since 1920, this hunting party probably was "back home" because his brother Dent and, according to an aunt, his nephew Glenn Kilby, both Ashe Countians, are in the picture. I send this, thinking you might recognize the other hunters. To identify those I know: at deer's hindquarters with gun over shoulder--Charles Bradley Pennington, second from right, Dent Pennington; far right, Glenn Kilby. Courtesy of Emily Kilby
