“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 20,000 finds. One cache machine found 111 ISQ caches in a single day (daylight hours only). PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL OF POSTED CEMETERY HOURS, TYPICALLY DAWN TO DUSK. ANY FIND LOGS INDICATING NIGHT CACHING WILL BE DELETED WITHOUT NOTICE.
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 #007
”Ohio Strikes Back Redux"
This is our seventh hide across the border in Ohio. Listen to what TMA has to say:
Welcome to Maple Grove Cemetery, St. Joseph Township, Williams County, Ohio.
This is a wonderful cemetery, tucked off the beaten path in Edgerton, Ohio. Maple Grove Cemetery was established in 1858.
The first person buried here in Maple Grove was William Preston, and afterwards all the graves from the town of Denmark were moved here. A peaceful veterans memorial is set in the Northwest corner of the cemetery, shortly after you drive in. Please take a moment to walk through. The back portion of Maple Grove, where you will find what you seek, is technically Saint Mary's Cemetery, but no information is available about why the different distinction. The two cemeteries run concurrent. There might be an FTF Geocoin involved, I forget :) TMA
The cache container is a camo'd small tupperware. -- BYOP. Plenty of parking. If you find a fallen US flag, please stick it back in the ground. As always, please be respectful, and cache in, trash out. Pray for our Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, CoastGuardsmen and Airmen in harm's way. All photos by -Eleanor-.
