I still think the following is your best bet in Zemplin:
There is a village Vel'ke' Ras^kovce in Zemplin.
In each of the following period it was known as:
1808 = Welke' Rasskowce
1873-1882 = Nagyraska
1888-1913 = Nagyra'ska
1920 = Vel'ke' Raz^kovce
1927 = Vel'ke' Ras^kovce
Try this one on for size.

Subject: [SPAM] [S-R] looking for Velky Rakovicz
I am trying to track down the ancestral village of my
great-grandfather, Michael Cralley (originally Kraly), who emigrated
from Hungary around 1880. We have no family information about the
Kraly family, except that Michael's sister, Barbara Kraly married John
Yuhasz (originally Juhasz), who also left Hungary around the same time
for England, and then the U.S. We are hoping that the Kraly family
came from the same or a nearby village as the Yuhasz family. The
Yuhasz family history shows them coming from Velky Rakovec or Velky
Rakovicz, of Zemplen province in Upper Hungary. Is this town the
present-day Rakovec nad Ondavou in the Kosice region of Slovakia?
