Geocache Description:

It took 80 years to decipher this tablet the first time.



...mind you, I did it in 3 days and my brother in 2 so I'm not convinced it is *that* hard. I have marked it as maximum difficulty for this reason though. The coordintes noted above are not exactly where this virtual cache is located - but they are close enough for any trip-planning purposes. Once you decipher what it says, answer the questions below to find the location of the headstone. When there you can prove your find with a picture of yourself with this stone or the original to its right. If you don't have a camera I will accept as proof Florence's last name emailed to me.

Here's the key:

N43 AB.CDE

W80 FG.HIJ

AB = The 2nd young lady's age +4
C = # of times farm is mentioned
D = month of 2nd young lady's death
E = 3rd digit of her year of death
F = length of 6th last word
G = length of last word
HI = 3x 1st young lady's age +12
J = Her death month

If you already know where the stone is located you can skip the decryption and just confirm your visit. If you'd like to verify your coordinates before you attempt the find you may email me with them and I will confirm (or deny!). And of course if you need a hint (or two) you can email me privately. Good luck!! And I almost forgot, bring a flower
I apologize for the picture, the snow made the last three lines difficult to photograph so I will list them here:
I G A I 2 D I E H D E 27 H G O
T F R M O B T R N W N E V N A
F S O G D U A E O I H A E M Y
