Deborah, there are no Mitchells buried in the Flovilla Cemetary, but in adjoining Henry County in a cemetary which was formerly located in Butts County, in the Sardis Baptist Church Cemetary, 2120 Keys Ferry Road, McDonough, GA., a Raymond L. Mitchell is buried there. He was born on December 13, 1896 and died on December 24, 1958. Next to his plot is a marker showing Velma Blake Mitchell, born on April 2 1897, but with no burial date, either indicating that Velma is not buried there or the date was not placed for her date of death. In an adjacent plot, Zulee Mitchell rests. Her stone is marked, "Gone So Soon," with a birthdate of September 12, 1914, and a death date of February 7, 1918. In a large cemetary at the Macedonia Baptist Church, Stark, GA., a church started on April 3, 1830, when Johnathan Reeves gave the church 2 acres of land, there are a number of Kings buried. This cemetary is well maintained. I have visited it as both my g-grandfather and g-g-grandfather are buried there. I hope that some of this information connects with you. Let me know if it does, and I will check when I am next in Butts County. Hayward
