Geocache Description:

Cool Roadside cemetery cache

Another matchstick container in a peaceful old cemetary bring your own pencil. The town of Cornwall,. named for one of the counties of England, was auctioned off at Fairlield in 1738, and settlement began the same year, largely from eastern Connecticut. A town was not incorporated until 1740. Cornwall consists of mountains and upland farms surrounding a small central valley, avoided by the first settlers because of its heavy stand of pine, which made land clearing difficult. The town is characterized by pine groves, stone walls and wide offlooks. Route 4 passes through town passing the Cemetery, containing flat slab which marks the grave of Henre Obookiah, who died in 1818 while a student at the Mission School, after giving the impetus for missionary work in the Sandwich Islands. A short walk through an old country cemetary will get you this one. Aside from the parking the cache itself is snow friendly. Lots of real old headstones in this one. No need to touch any monuments. Bring your own pencil.
