Tombstone Tuesday - John Flint

Sacred
to the Memory
of
Mr. John Flint
who was born Aug. 9th
1765
and died Feb. 5th
1817

Buried Hill Cemetery, off Hwy. 91, Caldwell County, Kentucky. Tombstone photographed 13 May 2011.

There were two men named John Flint who lived in the area at the same time, causing quite a bit of confusion. The above John Flint died first. The inventory of his estate is dated 5 Marcy 1817 with Hugh McVay, Wm. Ford Senr., and William Johnson as appraisers.[1]  The other John Flint left a very detailed will dated 23 November 1819. The appraisers of his estate were John Craig, Elijah Stevens and Tacy Cooper.[2]
