Representative from the Third district, composed of Marion, Cass and Bowie counties, was born near Aberdeen, in Munro County, Miss., March 14, 1835, and came to Texas in 1841 with his parents, Gideon and Harriet (Thomas) Flint, who located near Marshall, in Harrison County, where they resided until the time of their respective deaths.

Young Flint passed through and has a vivid recollection of the regulator and moderator troubles and other stirring series of events incident to the early settlement of Eastern Texas. He attended such local schools as the country afforded; completed his literary education at McKenzie college, Clarksville, Texas; read medicine under Dr. W. S. Fowler, of Tyler, Texas, in 1858; attended medical lectures at the University of Louisiana; began practice in Upshur County, Texas, in 1860, and after the war located in Marion County, Texas, where he has since resided; has enjoyed for many years a large practice and now owns farming, milling and ginning interests.

Dr. Flint has attended every Democratic County convention held in Marion County during the past twenty-five years and many district, congressional and state conventions; was a member of the state convention that nominated O. M. Roberts as a dark horse for the governorship; was active in reconstructing his County after the overthrow of radical and carpet-bag rule; served for ten years as County commissioner of Marion County; is a Democrat who has never deviated from true Democratic principles as taught and practiced by Jefferson and Jackson; has never scratched the name of a party nominee, and has been invariably successful in carrying his locality for the party ticket, state and national. He is opposed to a multiplicity of public offices and favors a government administered with as strict regard to economy as is consistent with the attainment of the ends for which free governments are organized, namely, the establishment and maintenance of peace and Dr. Flint is a member of the following House committees: Constitutional Amendments, Public Health and Vital Statistics, Mining and Minerals, and Roads, Bridges and Ferries.
