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.

Reeves-Elliott Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: South of Independence.

Directions: From the junction of New River Parkway (US 21) and Main St (US 58) in Independence drive approximately 1.9 miles south on New River Parkway. This cemetery is on a hill just south of a two story white house on the east side of New River Parkway. Access is up a hillside that was newly planted in Christmas trees in 2005.

GPS Coordinates: N36.5960 W81.15479

Surveyed by: Rich Ballard, January 2005 and info from Paul Herndon's files.

Comments: This cemetery is in sight of the highway but brush (and soon the Christmas trees) make it very difficult to see. This cemetery is fenced and well maintained.
