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.

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: Comers Rock Road

Directions: From the junction of Comers Rock Road (Rt 658) and Big Ridge Road (Rt 668) go 0.2 mi southwest on Comers Rock Road. The cemetery is on the right side of the road behind the 1993 home of Clarence Cornett. It is on a knoll but cannot be seen from the road. Note-The coordinates provided indicate that the cemetery is approx. 0.8 mile west of Big Ridge Road or 1 mile east of Central Church. A field check is needed to confirm location.

GPS Coordinates: N36.6877 W81.3057 (approximate)

Surveyed by: Paul Herndon, September 1993

Comments: The cemetery is fenced and in 1993 was being cleaned up. The graveyard is poorly kept and several large tree limbs had fallen into the area at that time. Most graves were marked only by field stones. There appear to have been at least 150 graves here.
