Asbury Cemetery, Autaugaville, Alabama

The grave listings for this cemetery were initially taken from two lists at the Alabama Archives & History. The first list of 23 graves have been marked by an asterisk * beside their name and was referred to as Autaugaville cemetery #1 and no location was provided. An additional listing of graves was referenced as a different Autaugaville cemetery located behind Dr. Shank’s old office near Swift Creek. Those 8 graves are marked with a caret ^. The remaining listings still have headstones present at the graveyard. This cemetery is now referred to as the Asbury Cemetery, but in newspaper clippings for obituaries it has been referred to as the “old Autaugaville cemetery”. The earliest known burial was that of Catharine Golson who died 4 Mar 1849, and the last burial was that of Woody Waldo DeBardelaben on 10 Apr 1946.

Directions: This cemetery sits behind an abandoned house/business on N. Pickett St./County Rd 19N, across from Dutch Bend Street. Coordinates: 32.43657, -86.65473
