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.

Arthur Hill Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: Fries, VA

Directions: This small family cemetery is beside the Fries Tabernacle Church at the intersection of Ivanhoe Road (Rt 94) and Tabernacle Road (Rt 1002).

GPS Coordinates: N36.72934 W080.98188

Surveyed by: Buford C. Wilson 3 Mar 2006; updated 27 Apr 2008

Comments: The cemetery is bordered by steel posts with an attached chain and is maintained by the church. There is a marker identifying the cemetery as the Hill Cemetery, but there are no individual stones. There appear to be small stones marking the corners of the graves.I was able to locate 5 graves and was told that there are 9 graves here. This information is from Grayson County records and family tradition.
