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 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.

Mount Pleasant Church Cemetery

Carroll County, Virginia

Sulphur Springs District

Directions: On the west side of Rt. 635 (Hebron Road), 0.8 mile from Rt. 887 (Glendale Road).

GPS Coordinates: N 36.70774 W 080.88597

Surveyed by: Buford C. Wilson; 12 Oct 2005 Updated 07 Nov 2009;

Comments: This cemetery is quite old and in recent years has been called the Bishop Cemetery. The Mount Pleasant Church used to be located nearby. The church building was dismantled, moved to the nearby Hebron Community, and was rebuilt there. The cemetery appears to be abandoned. There are over 75 graves marked with field stones or indicated by sunken ground. Information in [brackets] is not on the stone.
