On April 17, 1897, a UFO was reported to have crashed into a windmill. The pilot (who was "not of this world",) did not survive the crash.
News reporter S.E. Haydon chronicled the crash:
About 6 o'clock this morning the early risers of Aurora were astonished at the sudden appearance of the airship… It sailed over the public square and when it reached the north part of town it collided with the tower of Judge Proctor's windmill and went into pieces with a terrific explosion….
The pilot of the ship is supposed to have been the only one aboard and, while his remains were badly disfigured, enough of the original has been picked up to show that he was not an inhabitant of this world.
The "alleged" alien body is buried in an unmarked grave at this cemetery.
