Geocache Description:

The Dils Cemetary is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Hatfield-McCoy Feud Historic District. It is the first known cemetery in Eastern Kentucky to be integrated. Some of the more famous people buried here are Randolph McCoy, legendary leader of the McCoy Clan, and his wife/cousin Sarah, as well as their daughter, Roseanna, who ran away with Johnse Hatfield (son of Devil Anse Hatfield).

The Dils Cemetary is located at the mouth of Chloe Creek in Pikeville. Park in the Fire Station parking lot (coordinates N 37 28.650’, W082 30.885’) and follow the wooden steps up to the cemetery.

The cache is in a clear Tupperware container and originally included the following:

*1 fishing lure (spinnerbait)
*another fishing lure (Mann's 15+ crankbait)
*a bag of golf tees
*a key ring
*an ink pen
*2 mini carabiners
*brochures about the Dils Cemetery and the Hatfield-McCoy Feud. PS--While hiding this cache, my wife said to me, "Please promise me that, when I die, you won't bury me with my head downhill."
