Avoca Cemetery is located about 2 miles north of Hwy 39 and 1.2 miles west of Hwy 177 northwest of Asher.

It sits on the south side of the gravel road. I have listed the graves by row starting from the west end of the cemetery with plots proceeding from north to south. Examples: R5-4 would be the fourth legible grave marker in from the north end of row 5. R1-3 would be the third legible marker in from the north end of the first row at the back of the cemetery. There are only a few graves on the east end of the cemetery. This results in my guessing at row numbers past row 18.
