Welcome to Aurora ...

We've added Aurora to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Aurora - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Aurora, please Contact Us.
While we don't have the exact location of Aurora, we believe that it would have been located within present day Jefferson County.
