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.

Jacob Grubb Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: South of Barton's Crossroads in the old community of Major.

Directions: From the junction of Fox Creek Rd (Rt 711) and Wilson Hwy (US 58) go 4 1/2 mi north on Fox Creek Rd. Or from the junction of Fox Creek Rd and Flatridge Rd (Rt 658) go half mile southeast on Fox Creek Rd. The cemetery is east of the road on a hill top and can be seen from the road.

GPS Coordinates: N36.655945 W81.330490

Surveyed by: Joe W. Phipps, date unknown; Rich and Ginger Ballard, 24 Mar 2003. Additional information from the files of Paul Herndon has been added.

Comments: The fenced area of this cemetery is much larger than indicated by the number of marked graves. It appears any field stones have been removed when brush was cleared off the cemetery, but depressions show there are numerous --perhaps 20 or 30-- unmarked graves here.
