Everybody in the cemetery is a member of Woodman of the World. They
often have tomestones depicting logs there are at least 2 in the
Elbert/Kiowa Cemetery.Treestones are basically grave markers in the
shape of a tree. Often they will look like tree stumps or logs.
Some will have branches. They are usually associated with the
Woodmen of the World, and their various associated groups, although
using tree-shaped grave markers pre-dates the organization. The
treestones of Woodmen will usually include their symbols, and they
might be inscribed with “Dum Tacet Clamet” (”though silent he
speaks”), or “here rests a Woodman of the World.” Trees, branches
and leaves are common symbols of nature in cemeteries.
!! Exciting New Cache Series
“COLORADO SPIRIT QUEST”
Colorado Spirit Quest is a series of Caches placed by many individuals, near cemeteries and historic sites in hopes of paying respect to the many pioneer ancestors that have ‘walked’ before us.
There are hundreds of cemeteries in the rural and mountain communities across Colorado.This series will introduce you to many of them. The cache pages will provide a virtual history tour of the cemeteries and tombstones.
COLORADO SPIRIT QUEST is not affiliated with any other Spirit
Quest group. Special thanks and credit are given to
SixDogTeam who started the Indiana Spirit Quest in 2004. The idea has rapidly spread into many states.
The CSQ endeavor is an enormous and relentless task. It cannot
be accomplished by just one or two people. This project will only flourish if there is a multitude of volunteer cachers willing to place these caches.
After locating the cache container, take some time to reflect back
on the lives of those pioneers and the effort it took to make Colorado such a great state.
