These graves are in no particular order.


There are several other graves in the cemetery that is not Flynns but were related. Lots of graves are unmarked and unknown.


In the 1970ís, Terry W. Gosa sowed the cemetery in grass, leveled the graves and put cement markers with numbers where graves had no tombs. Money is taken up at the Flynn Reunion each year to cover the expense of mowing and maintaining the cemetery.
