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.

New River Notes

New River Notes, a leading genealogy resource for the New River Valley of North Carolina and Virginia, launched its new look website today.

new river valley mapNew River Notes was originally launched in 1998 by Jeffrey C. Weaver providing New River Valley researchers with a new wealth of information and that tradition is continued today by the Grayson County, Virginia Heritage Foundation, Inc.

Welcome and we hope you enjoy our new look.

Boyd Cemetery

Carroll County, Virginia

Pine Creek District

Location: Little Vine Community

Directions: In a pasture field at the intersection of Rt. 749 Little Vine Road & Rt. 897 Pioneer Circle

GPS Coordinates: N 36.816742 W 080.786690

Surveyed by: Buford C. Wilson; 13 Dec 2012;

Comments: The cemetery is well fenced, but is badly overgrown and in poor condition. There are many graves marked only with fieldstones. I assume there are members of the James P. Boyd family buried here. Also the daughter of a nearby Hardy family that was killed in a fall is said to be buried here. Information in [brackets] is not on the stone.
