The Aubry Cemetery is an active cemetery, managed by the Aubry Cemetery District Association. This beautiful cemetery is presently well maintained, however there are a large number of missing and broken stones in the old section of the cemetery, as well as a number of illegible deteriorated stones. The map of the cemetery.

The first legible death date recorded from the stones is for James B Franklin, d. Feb. 27, 1862, 53 Yrs, 11 Mos, 19 Dys, with a total of 12 death dates recorded from the 1860s. There are 3 births in the 1790s, with Thomas Short, 1784 - 1876, having the oldest recorded birth in the cemetery. The person with the oldest calculated age is Volle P Tracy, Feb 1, 1887-Jul 26, 1993, approximately 106 yrs old. There are two other calculated ages over 100 years old.

The peak decades of cemetery use, from evaluating the death dates of the legible stones, are the 1990s (65), the 1980s (58), the 1930s (57), and the 1900s (54).

This is a complete transcription by reading and photographing the gravestones, completed on Jul 16, 2006. Photos available upon request.
