Geocache Description:

A multi-cache in the Waller County countryside


Country Cemetery

A Country Cemetery is located on a back country road in Waller County. There are excellent backroads around here for bicycling. That is how we came across this location. At the posted coordinates you will find the grave of EAG, who donated the land for this cemetery (the grave stands out). Find the date of his birth and divide it into each of the following two numbers to get the minute and decimal corrdinates of the final waypoint. N 97390.664 divided by date of birth = N minute and decimal coord's. W 5407.794 divided by date of birth = W minute and decimal coord's (bring a calculator). It isn't far from the posted coordinates. You can easily walk to the final if you wish. Mr. G. donated the land for the cemetery. He lived to see the War of 1812, the National Jubilee, the War for Texas Independence, the Mexican - United States War and the Civil War.

Other caches are located in the area. All of these are accessible by bicycle or car. GCTTK5, GCTMBR, GC45A8J, GC3DX2C and GC1YZZM Even more caches are available in nearby Stephen F. Austin State Park. To do all of the non-park caches would require a bike ride of 25 to 30 miles. This is also a great country drive, especially in the spring when the wildflowers are in bloom. Food and drinks are available in Monaville and at the cafe on Buller Road. This is an active cemetery so be respectful to other visitors.
