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.

The next two markers were apart from each other but with the same identical inscription on each, as follows:
? BLACK born Aug.19,1872--died April 23,1913 (it is probably the first stone of Ruth HANKS BLACK and then when her husband Jesse died, they had a joint headstone).
? BLACK born Aug.19,1892 --died April 11,1915 ( this would be the headstone of Crettie BLACK, daughter of Jesse & Ruth Hanks Black).
