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.

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.

McBride Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: North of Riverside Road on Fulton Road

Directions: The cemetery is visible from Flatrock Rd (Rt 698) but there is no easy way to reach it. Travel south on Fulton Rd (Rt 691) 2.1 miles from its intersection with Pine Mountain Road (Rt 692). At a gate across the road from the driveway at 1024 Fulton Road travel west through the field, beside a large creek, until you reach a smaller creek. Cross this creek and continue up the hill to the cemetery.

GPS Coordinates: N36.64386 W81.09726

Surveyed by: Buford C. Wilson 3 Jan 2007, updated 12 May 2008

Comments: This cemetery is on a hill top in a pasture field. The cemetery has no fence and is in poor condition. Three markers have been set into a concrete slab, with a fourth name and dates inscribed in the concrete. Three other markers are piled against one of the two large cedar trees that are growing in the cemetery. It doesn’t seem possible to tell how many graves are here. There are some sunken spots and other places where woodchucks have dug out large holes.
