Geocache Description:

Helmont Kellogg (1762-1848) - one of Wisconsins few revolutionary war patriots. Please be respectful...

Note 5-30-14: due to recent cemetery renovations, the cache has been moved to coords N 42° 40.896 W 087° 57.219. Please be respectful to the guardians.

The cache is in a small ammo can in an excellent location for geocachers that need a place to drop (or pick up) travel bugs on their way along interstate I-94 between Milwaukee and Chicago... This cache was placed with approval of the custodian of this cemetery. If snow is on the ground, try your best to cover your tracks (or make more tracks) so that traffic to and from the cache location is not readily apparent.

The "SQ" in the cache name above signifies Spirit Quest, a project started in Indiana (GCHRFJ) to distinguish caches that are set in cemeteries. The idea has since spread throughout the Midwest and elsewhere.

To find Helmont: enter grounds. Head in to the large sign telling you about his life. Turn left (south). Head south about 3/4 to the end. He has a large new stone in addition to the original, right next to a large pine tree. Coords: N42 40.904 W087 57.225
