Historical and Biographical Information

Flint Hill Cemetery, located in Oakton, Virginia, dates back to 1852, and is one of Fairfax County’s oldest community cemeteries in addition to being one of the few in the county run by an active association. In 1875, citizens of the community organized the Flint Hill Cemetery Association in order to oversee and maintain the burial ground. As of 2017, the cemetery contains more than 2,300 burials including at least 24 Civil War veterans.

In May 1993, Jeff Waguespack coordinated a survey of sections A and B of Flint Hill Cemetery for his Eagle Project. The labor for the project was drawn from Boy Scout Troop 1137. In the summer and fall of 1993, the Fairfax Genealogical Society surveyed sections C and D of Flint Hill Cemetery and the adjoining Oakton Church of the Brethren Cemetery. Both surveys were donated to the Virginia Room in 1993.
