    Flint was captain of the Walrus, with a long career, operating chiefly in the West Indies and the coasts of the southern American colonies. Flint and his crew were successful, ruthless, feared, and rich, if they could keep their hands on the money they stole. The bulk of the treasure Flint made by his piracy—700,000 pounds' worth of gold, silver bars and a cache of armaments—was, however, buried on a remote Caribbean island. Flint brought the treasure ashore from the Walrus with six of his sailors, also building a stockade on the island for defence. When they had buried it, Flint returned to the Walrus alone—having murdered all of the other six. A map to the location of the treasure he kept to himself until his dying moments.

    The whereabouts of Flint and his crew are obscure immediately thereafter, but they ended up in the town of Savannah, Province of Georgia. Flint was then ill, and his sickness was not helped by his immoderate consumption of rum. On his sickbed, he was remembered for singing the chantey "Fifteen Men" and ceaselessly calling for more rum, with his face turning blue. His last living words were "Darby M'Graw! Darby M'Graw!", and then, following some profanity, "Fetch aft the rum, Darby!". Just before he died, he passed on the treasure map to the mate of the Walrus, Billy Bones (or so Bones always maintained).After Flint 's death, the crew split up, most of them returning to England . They disposed of their shares of the unburied treasure diversely.
