Big Black Cemetery Binder The Zirjacks Cemetery is a family cemetery, no longer in use, located in T53R38S31, approximately 1-1/2 miles west of Rayville. Tthe cemetery is in poor condition: badly overgrown in brush, weeds and fences are down, cattle have roamed freely through the cemetery for many years, as it is in the middle of a farm and has no access road. Many of the headstones were broken, although most were readable. Some stones were comletely unreadable. Others were unreachable due to the brush and brambles.
