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.

Fielden Young Cemetery

Grayson County, Virginia

Location: Mouth of Wilson

Directions: From the junction of US 58 and Jefferson Hwy (SR 16) in Mouth of Wilson go southwest on Jefferson Hwy 1.2 miles to farm gate on the right (north) side of the road. From this point the cemetery is about 0.4 mile north on ridge at the edge of the grass area. Access via vehicle is not recommended. From the gate follow the trail across bridge in field, then travel along creek line, generally north then up ridge line to the cemetery.

GPS Coordinates: N36.588939 W81.362080

Surveyed by: Info from Paul Herndon’s files, with some info from survey by James and Mary Cox in 1991

Comments: The cemetery is fenced, about 60 ft. x 150 ft. in size, severely overgrown with brush and trees and needs cleanup and a re-inventory. The cemetery is not visible from road. This cemetery is reportedly near the location of the home of an Ezekiel Young. That home was occupied into the middle of the 20th century. No sign of the house could be seen during a visit in May 2008. Barbara Rio provided family information.
