|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This Cemetery was once called Goldmine. Depending on who you ask today, it is now called Flint Hill Cemetery, taking the name from a church that used to be there, or Easler Family Cemetery.
The Cemetery itself is on land owned by the Federal Park Service, and is really in the middle of "nowhere". It is surrounded by Federal Park Land, and not easily located. The cemetery is not visible from the road.
From Thomson, take Hwy 17 north toward Washington, and 8.2 miles from interstate 20, turn right on Smith Mill Road. This is a dirt and gravel road. Follow this road for 2.7 miles, and look for trees on the left, marked with red paint stripes. Pull in between the trees. The Cemetery is in the woods to the left
The Cemetery is not kept up, and most of the headstones are not readable. According to the Funeral Home is Thomson, there are many graves without a marker. This is a mixed race cemetery.
