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

Welcome and we hope you enjoy our new look.

John M. Davis Grave

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: East of Independence

Directions: This grave is on a steep wooded hillside 0.3 mile south of the intersection of Pine Mountain Road (Rt 692) and Riverside Drive (Rt 274). The grave is near an abandoned rock quarry and there is no easy way to reach it. Drive past the rock quarry to the next opening. Walk into the woods and bear to the right towards the quarry. The terrain is very rough and steep. There do not appear to be any other graves here.
