Last weekend a cousin and I set out in search of the Flowers Family Cemetery located near Ebanezer Methodist Church in Johnston County just over the line from Wayne County. The cemetery is located on the banks of a pond and what I assume is the old family house is not far away. It is beautiful!

The directions for driving there are: As you pass over the county line into Johnston County on Harper House Road, there is a driveway about one-tenth of a mile past Ebenezer United Methodist Church. This is on the left and the cemetery is visible from the road.

Buried there we found:
