The Aurora cemetery contains a Texas Historical Commission marker mentioning a legend that an unidentified flying object crashed into a windmill near Aurora on April 19, 1897, the year of the mystery airship flap in Texas, and the pilot, killed in the crash, was given a Christian Burial at this location.

An investigation in 1973 uncovered a piece of metal that was 95% aluminum, and 5% iron. This is very uncommon in nature, especially to find no zinc along with the sample. Scientists agree that it would have had to be synthesized, a process too advanced for the time. The graveyard was also searched, where a marker was uncovered that appeared to show a flying saucer of some sort. Metal detectors detected readings just like those of the above-mentioned sample. Investigators asked for permission to exhume the site, but it was not granted. When they returned for a last look, they discovered that the marker had been taken, and the metal removed with a pipe through the ground.

The previous owner of the land where the crash had taken place is known to have discarded the metal from the wreckage by throwing it into his well. Having subsequently developed severe athritis that he blamed on contaminated well water, the same previous owner sealed over the well with a concrete slab.
