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

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.

Warrick-Dufphey Cemetery

aka Andrew Hampton Family Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: East of Independence off of Riverside Dr.

Directions: This cemetery is in a barnyard at the end of the driveway leading to the Leonard Longhorn Cattle Farm. The driveway is on the south side of Riverside Dr. (Rt 274) 2.3 miles west of its intersection with Scenic Dr. (SR 94).

GPS Coordinates: N36.66249 W81.05296

Surveyed by: Buford C. Wilson 18 October 2007

Comments: There is a large bronze marker on a granite slab. It reads as follows: "In this cemetery lie Andrew and Sarah Griggs Hampton--the first Hamptons in Grayson County. Thousands have descended from these two pioneers who settled near this site in 1785."It appears there are 25 to 30 graves marked with field stones. The cemetery is in very poor condition. The current owners are letting goats graze in it so there are no briars or weeds. However over the years most of the engraved stones have been broken into small pieces or are missing. Most of the graves are only marked with field stones and some of them are strewn about the cemetery.
