Unnamed Negro Youngsters

When Joe Brown asks the "old negro woman" sitting on the porch of her cabin about who lives there, she replies "Aint nobody here but me and the two little uns" (433-34). She adds that these two children are "too little" to carry a message to town (434), but neither she nor the narrative say anything else about them.

Jefferson Negro Church in Flags in the Dust (Location)

This church - referred to by its unnamed pastor as the "late Fust Baptis' church" (286) - has already been "burnt down" before the novel begins (240). It is mentioned in the novel in the comic context of Simon's misappropriation of the funds that the Negro congregation has been saving to replace it with a Second Baptist church. The narrative says nothing more about how it was burned down, and provides no details that would help us identify where it stood.
