Tombstone Photographs

This cemetery was located at Lewis and Geneseret Streets, City of Flint, Section 8 (per information furnished by Michigan State Library).

The buried remains were removed and re-intered in AVONDALE CEMETERY, nearby in Section 8, City of Flint, by the City of Flint, to make room for re-alignment of the streets and allow the construction of a downtown motel (now known as, HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS FLINT-CAMPUS located 1150 Robert T Longway Boulevard, Flint, MI 48503).

Old Flint City Cemetery was located on Lewis Street, now named Chavez Dr.

I am 89 years of age and I presume the present generations would have little or no knowledge that Old Flint City Cemetery ever existed in Flint.
