Today’s post on the Old Alms House Cemetery features Mrs. Anna B. Flint. Her stone supposedly states (per Find A Grave) only that she died February 19, 1972, and was the wife of “A. Flint.” I believe this transcription may be in error, as her stone seems to say “1853” or “1873.” (This would be more logical considering most of the dates in the cemetery).Though straw obscures part of the inscription, it appears she was in her 30s when she died. Anna is likely related to Edward Alex Flint, age 2, who is also buried at this cemetery.


Co. D, 48TH Georgia Infantry

Born November 30, 1827 --- Died July 02, 1863 at age 35

Sgt. Daniel entered in military in March 1862. The husband of Angeline, he was also father to Rosaline (age 12 at her father’s death), Ella or Ellafair (age 8), and James (age 5).
