Avery Cemetery was transcribed by Debra Garner January 10, 1996, and has been supplemented by obituaries, funeral home records, marriage record and by tombstones. Debra has researched and found full dates and names. Those may be shown in the Name field with the actual reading on Details on Marker when available. The comments are made by Debra or Patti Vance Hays.

The cemetery is still active with at least thirteen unmarked graves.
