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

January 6, 2013

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.

Alfred Blevins Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location:  West of White Top

Directions:  The Alfred Blevins Cemetery is in the extreme southwestern corner of Grayson County, Virginia and is exceedingly difficult to reach. From the junction of Highlands Parkway (US 58) and Whitetop Gap Rd (Rt 726) go south on Whitetop Gap Rd to the community of White Top. From White Top take Pond Mountain Lane (Rt 755) west to the end of state maintenance. At this point there will be a house and several outbuildings to the left. Inquire at the house about permission and directions to get to this cemetery. Basically, you have to go up the lane past the barns closest to the creek, and then ford the creek, it is fairly wide, and fairly shallow, but there is no bridge, walk up this road about 0.25 mile, and then cross a fence, climb a hill planted in christmas trees, walking toward the ridge. Once on the ridge follow it until you reach the cemetery.
