Rasnake/Smith Cemetery

Located on Rt. 600, in Sink Hole Valley abt. 2 miles out of Cleveland, just past the Ivy Ridge Chapel Church. I visited this cemetery August 12, 1998. There are actually four cemeteries that are located here. Two are beautiful and well cared for. They are situated beside each other with a fence seperating the two. The Smith Cem's. are in the woods at the end of the first two cem's. and are overgrown. There are numerouse graves here that are marked with field stones.
