Aventine Cemetery is located in Flint, MI.
Aventine Cemetery, while abandoned, still exists and is maintained to the extent possible by various community groups. It is so close to Avondale Cemetery that many people mistake them for one cemetery.
The Dale Ladd of the Flint Genealogical Soc. has done an amazing job of reconstructing thousands of burials from this cemetery using death records, obituaries, and so forth. The remainder of the burials, and nobody knows who or how many, because the records dis-interment and re-interment were lost in a fire at City Hall, were moved to another cemetery called the "New" Flint City Cemetery.
While nominally still in use, this cemetery has basically been abandoned by the city as well and is maintained by the Flint Detachment of the Marine Corps League.
