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

Gincy Wheatley Anderson, JeannetteWheatley Forrester, Della Wheatley Cox Cornett636 viewsSitting on Mom's right is her next older sister, Virginia Malley Wheatley Anderson or Aunt Gincy as we always heard her referred to. She and Uncle Lee lived in Major, VA for a long time. Mom's other sister is on her left, Cynthia Della Wheatley Cox Cornett, or Aunt Dell, Mom's oldest sister. She lived in Fox, VA with her husband, Isom Cox, and their five or six children. Much later she married a Cornett. I don't know a thing about that marriage except that Aunt Dell lived in Sparta, NC then.

CopenhaverReunion.jpg
CopenhaverReunion.jpg288 viewsThis picture was labeled Copenhaver Reunion. I donít know all the people here or what year this was taken. I have been able to identify my great great grandparents, Harvey King and Amanda Copenhaver. Amanda Copenhaver died in 1938, and she was ill for a number of years before that, so I believe this picture is from the 1910ís or 1920ís. Courtesy of Amy Bazar abazar2151@charter.net55555

That's' Dorothy b1924, Olive behind her b1918, the boy, Warren b1922, Juanita b 1919, Alta on her right b1927 and Jackie the youngest. b1929.
