Geocache Description:

On land granted by William Penn to Samuel Coles, easy walking to visit many of his descentants and my cousins.

Many of my ancestors are buried here. In fact the person buried at the starting coordinates is a 5th cousin 4 times remove. His 3rd great grand father is noted on a plaque when you enter as recieving this land from William Penn.

This is a two part cache. The cache container is a black film canister. The final cache is located at 39.56.abc 074.59.xyz

1) Find the Tombstone located at the coordinates posted above. His middle name is Woolston. What was his occupation in the US Navy? Take that word and translate it to numeric equivilants. Where A is equal to 1, B to 2, Z to 26.

abc = add up the numeric equivilants of 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th characters in his occupation. Add it to the 009 in the starting coordinates.

xyz = add up all the letters numeric equivilants, double that number, then add the numeric equivilant of the 5th letter to the answer. Finally add that to the 420 in the starting coordinates.

As you walk to the final coordinates look for a "Bush" on your right. The final location is about 20 paces to the right (south east) of the "Bush". The cache is not in a bush, but something bigger. Please remember to be respecful of where you at.
