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.

Rose Family Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: This cemetery is east of Bridle Creek Road (Rt 601) about 0.4 mi south of Wilson Hwy (US 58).

Directions: From the junction of Wilson Hwy and Bridle Creek Rd go south 0.55 mile on Bridle Creek Rd to farm gate on left (east) side of road. The cemetery is visible on a hilltop approximately 500 yds east of this point.

GPS Coordinates: N36.613762 W81.240145

Surveyed by: 20 March 2004 by Ginger Ballard

Comments: This cemetery lies on a hill in a pasture. It is fenced, well-maintained, and is clearly visible from the road. There appear to be some unmarked graves in the second row in addition to the marked graves listed below. This cemetery was previously identified as the David Cox Cemetery probably because it was on the land of David Cox.
