This is a small, abandoned family cemetery on Flowers Branch on the eastern edge of the U.S.G.S. Pope quadrangle. In 1988 is was overgrown with weeds. In 1999 is was being kept clear of weeds and a small sign identified the cemetery. There probably are eight unmarked graves here. Leo and David Donahue recorded this cemetery December 25, 1988. It was rechecked April 17, 1999.
