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.

A reference to an obituary for Elizabeth Grubb was found on a defunct web page done by Jeff Carter: I have a copy of an obit for Elizabeth "Aunt Betty" (Porter) Grubb wife of Conrad Grubb. ( This seems to change his name from Coonrod to Conrad). She was born 2-24-1828 in Grayson Co. VA. and died 4-17-1928, (living a little more than a 100 years) at the home of her daughter Mrs Worth Clark in Waynoda, Oklahoma. She was preceded in death by several years by her two sons Clark and Isom. Her other child was a daughter. She is survived by 9 Grand children and Several Great Grand children. Her request was to be brought back to be buried beside her husband in the old Porter cemetery (old home place of Aunt Betty) now owned by Mr. Frank Grubb. This was written by one who knew her, Mittie R. Young, Grant, Va.
