Editor’s want-list for this marker. Photo of Micajah Frasher's grave marker. • To reach the Frasher Cemetery, turn west off route 52, across from the entrance to Fort Gay. Turn right, the cemetery road is to the left about 1 to 1.5 miles, up the hill. The road is paved but has large holes, travel carefully. • Can you help?
