The Cemetery is about a mile down the road on the left. The main gate is a walk-through gate, but there are also three drive-through gates on the road.

Cemetery History: The oldest known graves here, dating from as early as the 1860’s, are those of the Randall and Rowlett families. Finis Dudley Beauchamp (1825-1893), a confederate veteran from Mississippi, donated the 3-acre site to the newly-formed Aurora lodge No 479, A. F. & A.M., in 1877. For many years, this community burial ground was known as Masonic Cemetery. Located in Aurora Cemetery is the gravestone of the infant Nellie Burris (1891-1893) with its often-quoted epitaph; "As I was so soon done, I don’t know why I was begun." This site is also well-known because of the legend that a spaceship crashed nearby in 1897 and the pilot, killed in the crash, was buried here. Veterans of the Civil War, World Wars I and II, and Korean and Vietnam conflicts are interred here.

Grave Reference: Post War Section A Row A Grave 9

Cemetery History: The Book of Genesis Verse 10:19 indicates that the city of Gaza was established about 5,000 years ago by the Canaanites. Gaza City is located on an ancient caravan route that paralleled the Mediterranean Sea from Phoenicia to Egypt. Gaza was later taken over by the Philistines and Alexander the Great, and then the Crusaders who held the city until the Ottoman Empire conquered that part of the world. During World War 1, the British conquered the area and located the Gaza War Cemetery adjacent to the city to inter their war dead continuing to World War 2 after which it became a Commonwealth War Grave Cemetery. Canada buried 23 UNEF fatal casualties in the Gaza War Cemetery.
