Francis Harbour I am a Charter Board Member of the Georgia Flat Cemetery Association. Our president is a history buff and has done a lot of research and knows a lot of people in the Sons of the Confederate she is also on boards with the historical society and Benton County Cemetery Preservation Group. She has dug up most of the history on this cemetery. There are no stones for the confederate soldiers here but we have been trying to get them. It is still a work in progress. We don't know where they are all buried but there are a lot of rocks marking graves. And as the journal of GAMMAGE BRIGADE SURGEON of MCNAIR'S BRIGADE states they lost 30 men in 36 days so it must have been real hard on them.

This is very confusing, is this a coincidence or do I have wires crossed somewhere? Are we referring to the same Rosie?
