How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:


A two-stage multicache. The final cache is NOT on the cemetery premises and will require a short drive. PLEASE BE CAREFUL hunting the final cache and park carefully.

The posted coordinates for this cache will take you to a grave site for J G Adam Peter. The site is uncommon in that it is covered by a stone slab, or "ledger." Represent his birthday as a number date. BE CAREFUL to list the month first, like we normally write dates today, versus the way it is written on the ledger. For instance, if he was born 01 March 1821, you would have 03/01/1821. Let the number you end up with equal AB/CD/EFGH.

The cache is located at

N44 48.(F)(B+C)(G)
W88 25.(D)(E)(F-G)

There are many rural cemeteries in Wisconsin. Geocaching is a great way to get out and see some of these remote places, discover some interesting and unique markers, and to help ensure that those that have gone before us are not forgotten. With cemetery caches, the cache container is not hidden on or connected in any way to any grave site or marker. Occasionally, some information from a marker may be used to obtain final cache coordinates. Please be respectful of the cemetery and anyone visiting it.

About the WSQ-SCC Series WSQ stands for "Wisconsin Spirit Quest, which is used by many Wisconsin cemetery cache owners. SCC stands for Shawano County Cemeteries, and the number relates to the number on a master cemetery map. The name after SCC is the name of the Township, then comes the name of the cemetery.

As we travelled around Shawano County while Geocaching, we would occasionally come across “lonely and forgotten” cemeteries. These are places that were once affiliated with a church that has long since dissolved, formerly private cemeteries that have fallen to community ownership, and other places that time seems to be passing by.

As we looked into these places, we discovered that in fact there are at least 115 cemeteries in Shawano County, and 99 of them are publicly accessible and/or publicly owned. It is our intention to bring new visitors to as many of these places as possible and remember those who have gone before us. You just might find a long-lost relative or two.

Therefore, these caches are designed to be easy to find, generally consist of a container and log only, and focus on out-of-the-way, rural cemeteries. Also, any multi-stage caches are designed to bring you to special features of a particular cemetery.
