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.

Unknown Grave

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: Roberts Cove

Directions: This grave is located east of Blue Spring Gap Road just north of Lee Branch on the Wiley Roberts farm in Roberts Cove. There are no visible indications of this burial site.

GPS Coordinates: N36.7070709 W81.3069271

Surveyed by: 19 March 2004 by Scott Trent and Rich and Ginger Ballard

Comments: This burial site is not fenced or maintained. It lies in a pasture on a knoll. The last person to tend this field (over fifty years ago) told family members that he had always plowed around the grave and avoided disturbing it. There was no stone marking the grave.The coordinates given above are for the most likely site on the knoll but may not match the exact spot.
