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.

Unnamed Spring Valley Rd. Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: This cemetery is on a farm owned by Alton Bourne on Spring Valley Road.


GPS Coordinates: N36.7507022 W81.1193764

Surveyed by: August 2003 by Richard Ballard and Alton Bourne

Comments: Mr. Bourne said that several years ago he had cleared a bunch of rocks off his farm before realizing they were arranged in rows. The grave sites were barely discernible. Although he later talked to neighbors he was unable to find anyone who had knowledge of who was buried at this site. There are perhaps ten burials at this site.
