Elijah Rasnake Cemetery

This cemetery is on the Old Joe Rasnake Place, only it is actually on down the point or ridge from the James Rasnake Cemetery. Although strip mining has been performed all around this Cemetery, it is still very beautiful and surprisingly in very good shape. To get to this cemetery, from Rt. 621, turn on Rt. 625, travel about 1 mile, to end of Russell County line,(county line markers are gone now), Rt. 625 ends here, and just past the county line, come to a fork in road, turn right. I'm not sure of just which of the counties these two cemeteries would be located in, since all three Russell, Dickenson and Buchanan join here. These directions are given based on traveling in from the Hart's Creek end of Rt. 621. I visited this cemetery August 04, 1998.
