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.

Welcome and we hope you enjoy our new look.

Jackie Blevins Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location:  Peach Bottom

Directions:  This grave site is in a hayfield on the east side of Little River between the river and Water Front Lane. This is north of Old Baywood Rd (Rt 626).

GPS Coordinates:  N36.59549 W81.05396

Surveyed by:  Buford C. Wilson 3 Apr 2007

Comments:  All visible signs of the grave have been obliterated by farming operations. I was shown the site by a local resident who worked in the field when he was a young man and the cemetery was still there with a fence around it. By tradition Jackie Blevins was the first of the Blevins settlers in the Peach Bottom community. There are probably other members of this family buried here.
