Geocache Description:


Holliday Station was a whistle stop on the Northwestern Railroad, between Woodhull and Eldorado. It was named for Adam Holiday, a local farmer that owned the land where this cemetery plot is. The train tracks is now the Mascoutin Trail and lies about .1 mile north of the cemetery, which is now called Anderson Cemetery. It was deeded in 1859, but the first interment was for 2 month old Ellen S. Benedict, in 1854.

The coordinates will take you to the final resting place of Mr. Holiday. You will need to do some simple math to finish these coordinates:

N43. 48. ABC    W088.36. XYZ

2230 minus Adam Holiday's year of birth = ABC

2334 minus Adam Holiday's year of death = XYZ.

The container is not on nor near any markers. If anyone is visiting the gravesites, please return at a later time.
