Survey contributed by Jo Church Dickerson and Buddy Harrelson, 8 Feb 2002.

Surveyed 31 January 2002 by Edward Timothy (Buddy) Harrelson, Jr. and Jo Church Dickerson

Located: Britton's Neck, Marion County, SC

Directions: Going south on Hwy 41 below Centenary, turn left onto Hwy 908. Go 2.8 miles, and turn left onto Aubrey Road (dirt road). Go 1.1 mile and turn left (just before house) onto dirt road with no name. Cemetery is one tenth of a mile ahead, at the end of the road. It is on a little knoll, right at the edge of the Little Pee Dee river swamp, near old Peter's Ferry Landing, according to the map. Beautiful, unique, and a little eerie.

History: We have no information about the history of the land, except that 
members of the Richardson family still live here, and the cemetery is 
beautifully kept and still in use by them. No information available on why 
this is called the Flowers Cemetery, unless perhaps one or more members of 
the Flowers family is buried here. If so, there is no record. There was a 
William Flowers shown in 1850 census residing near B.W. Cook, but no way to 
tell if that William Flowers was buried here or not. Other graves are said 
to be here.
