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.

Leftwich Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: Baywood

Directions: This cemetery is in a pasture field on the north side of Old Baywood Road (Rt 626) 0.6 mile from the intersection of Delhart Road (Rt 624) and Old Baywood Road. The cemetery has been abandoned for many years. There is no fence and the stones have been broken by farm machinery. I found markers for two graves and there are at least 13 more graves indicated by sunken ground and fieldstones. I called this the Leftwich Cemetery since that is the name on the two markers I found.
