James Rasnake Cemetery

This cemetery is very well kept and located just off Rt. 625, near or on the what was at one time known as, "The Old Joe Rasnake Property". There is the remains of a sawmill beside it now. There are 16 graves listed here that I could see and there may be others that can't be seen, but 8 of them are on old field rock and extremely hard to read. If anyone sees mistakes, or you can fill in the question marks below with the right years, dates, etc, please don't hesitate to let me know. The goal here is to salvage information that in time may forever be gone.
