This index lists about 560 cemeteries identified in Grayson Co. About 500 of these have been surveyed with files listing burial information presented here. Included in this index are several cemeteries where there is no available information on the burials and cemeteries where we do not currently have sufficent information to find them.Some of these may be duplicates of other known cemeteries.The cemetery information provided here is based on the work of numerous individuals who visited and surveyed the cemeteries. There are certainly many family cemeteries lost in the woods and with no visible indication of their locations.The Grayson County cemetery index and the linked cemetery files represent the collected efforts of many people.This list includes cemeteries that are in areas that were formerly part of Grayson or Carroll counties.
On January 21, 2014 we switched in the last of the updated files and final page revisions. New River Notes, a leading genealogy resource for the New River Valley of North Carolina and Virginia, launched its new look website today.
Some families have their own quirks about burials as well, so nothing is set in stone any where (tongue firmly in cheek).
In the earliest days of settlement, there were relatively few churches in the area, and most of those didn't maintain a community or church cemetery, those that do exist tended to come a bit later. Clair's Bottom Primitive Baptist and Royal Oak Presbyterian immediately come to mind.
Cemeteries are listed in alphabetical order using the family surname, community name, institution name, etc.
Cemeteries may be known under different names by different groups.
