“OHIO SPIRIT QUEST”
The Ohio Spirit Quest series of geocaches will take you to a number of historic cemeteries built by Buckeye Pioneers. This series is inspired by and a continuation of the Indiana Spirit Quest caches created by Six Dog Team. In just over three years, the SPIRIT QUEST has grown to over 550 caches, with the hiding teams growing as well. The Ohio Spirit Quest has begun to grow with seven current hides in one Northwest Ohio county, with four current caching teams, three each with A Man and His Dog... and one with A Woman and her Dog. Over 1,000 cachers have logged over 25,000 finds. One cache machine found 111 ISQ caches in a single day (daylight hours only).
Come with us now for a virtual tour of this old burial ground via this page, then go out and find the cache!

OHIO SPIRIT QUEST #003
”Attack of the Hoosiers"
This is our third incursion across the border. Listen to what the SHADOW has to say:
Welcome to Boisher Cemetery, Florence Township, Williams County, Ohio.
This spot really messed with my sense of direction. The road runs NW to SE. The markers are, of course, facing directly east. After there, wandering around a bit, you turn and think, who moved the road?
That's a really strange feeling.
This is an out-of-the-way little cemetery; Very secluded and peaceful. There are no nearby buildings. It appears to have started as a family cemetery and is no longer active. The earliest legible marker is dated June 13, 1862. I'm sure there are some that are older. I located John & Anna Boisher's grave, whom the site is possibly named for. Several Millers are here as well. I never located any veterans markers, but as we all know, that doesn't mean there are none here. .---THE SHADOW
