Cumbia-Flint-Dameron Family Cemetery
Located approx. 300 to 400 yd. north of Robin Rd. (Route 633), 0.8 miles east of Cutbank Rd. (Route 609), and about 300 yd. west of the old Cumbia home. A 5 ft tall marble obelisk has “FLINT” inscribed on one side and “CUMBIA” on the other. This very overgrown cemetery is quite large, approx. 50 ft x 50 ft, with remnants of an old decorative wire fence around it. Fieldstones and depressions indicate many other graves.
