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 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.

James C. A. Perkins Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: Mill Creek

Directions: This cemetery is on a small knoll behind and to the right of the property at 3940 Highlands Parkway (US 58) It is about 0.25 mile east of Low Gap Rd (Rt 740) and north of Highlands Pky.

GPS Coordinates: N36.626766 W81.438250

Surveyed by: Jeff Weaver

Comments: This cemetery is not fenced and every stone in the cemetery had fallen over. It was not overgrown with brush, but could use considerable cleanup of fallen limbs, resetting the stones, and a fence to keep the cattle out. There are 12 graves in this cemetery, the earliest of which dates from 1888.
