JOHN Flynt CEMETERY

(Near Mt. Zion, about 10 miles south of Washington, Wilkes County, Georgia)

On land now owned by Continental Can Company, joining the old Gilbert-Pope-Hubbard lands. This was the old John Flynt home place. There are many other graves here not marked.

John Flynt, born Culpeper County, Virginia, December 19, 1758, died in Wilkes County, Georgia, on 19 September 1820. Revolutionary Soldier. "Pure as are Thy Joys Above the Skies, and All Thy Regions Peace, no Wanton Lips or Envious Eyes Can See or Taste Thy Bliss."

Sarah Porter Flynt, wife of John Flynt, born Orange County, Virginia, 14 February 1786?? (probably 1768 trans error?), died in Wilkes County, Georgia, 21 March 1843. "Alas She is Dead and Grief is Vain, Nor Would We Wish Her Back Again. But still Affectionate Tribute Would Drop O'er Her Memory."

Virginia O. Shehan, wife of M. J. Shehan, died 29 April 1858, in the 57th year of her life. (Was a Catholic) "She was perfectly Resigned to the Will of God, The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, Blessed be the Name of the Lord. She was once blooming as a flower, But now has faded by the Hand of God. ‘Requiescat in Pace.' Rest in Peace."
