Geocache Description:

The cache IS NOT at the listed coordinates.

There IS a BONUS CACHE so please make a note of the bonus number in the logbook.

Some of the logbooks are in the wrong caches but this will not matter for the bonus as long as you find #9 - #16.

This is a series of caches that I was inspired to create by Red_Family's series of Homburg caches called Grosse Namen and Ich Trage Einen Grossen Namen.

Each of the people in this series were born (MADE) in Germany. Later in life they immigrated to the USA and became citizens of America.  Many of them had a great influence on the USA and the rest of the world.  I hope that each person who completes this series learns a little bit more about how our two countries, German and The United States of America, are forever connected.


I am a man.
I was born in what is now Baden-Wuerttemberg.
I am dead.

Too difficult?  These hints might make it easier.

I moved to Detroit as a teenager.
In 1876 I moved to Chicago and became a butcher.
In 1883 I opened my own butcher shop.

Do you know who I am now?  No?

It is safe to say that most Americans have had one of my many products.
Upon my death my company had 9000 employees and locations in; Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Milwaukee Wisconsin, Davenport Iowa, and Los Angeles California.
Many kids in America know, by memory, a song in which they sing out my name and wish they were one of my products.
My wife was from Munich.

You can find the final at:
