TexasSerialKacher: Checked on this one yesterday. All the trees at the spot are dying. It's come up missing twice and I'm tired of ordering a plaster skull and making a new one. Bye Bye.

Geocache Description:

Cache in urban "pioneer" cemetery. Go easy on the area. Leave it better than you found it.

This is my inaugural cache. My goal is to place some shocking cache containers or place crappy ones in areas no one wants to cache. So, I don't wanna hear how bad the area of town is, or how hard the cache was to open. Whaa whaa whaa, Find em or don't, I don't care.

Bratton Cemetary:

Kentucky native, John Bratton (1812- 1855), came to Texas with his family in 1837. Ten years later, Bratton first settled in this area and then set aside this one acre area for use as a burial site for his family and friends. The earliest known is that of Marey Jay Robey, which took place in 1847. There are more than 100 known gravesites, of which 50 are marked with field stones. A good example of a pioneer graveyard in which many of the graves date back to the 1800's. The Bratton Cemetary is a reminder of the areas early history.
