Geocache Description:


This is Ziggy Crews 21st cache hidden.
And Our First Mystery Cache.


This cache is located in a rather odd area. I grew up around here and alot has changed over the years. This area was large fields and small wooded areas. We used to ride our mini-bikes through here on the countless trails that ran though it. Now the urban sprawl has finally caught up to it. This area is now the Woodbury Commons. And in the back of the Commons is a small Cemetery. The Coffey Family Cemetery.

Before the Commons came and started building in this area the cemetery was quite far off the road and really not known about to well. The area was quite over grown with trees and shrubs and bushes. My uncle took me there when I was 10 and it was a long walk at that age. He said that they were related to us. Not sure how without really researching it out.

The cemetery is very old and was used from the early 1800's to 1898.

Now when the Woodbury Commons bought the land they have cleaned up the cemetery and maintain it. There is a fence around it with a gate to get in and that is were the coordinents posted above take you to start the cache.

41o (AA).0(BB) - 074o (CC).(D)(EE)

This is the coordinents to the cache. A 35mm film canister containing a log strip with a spot at the top to recognize the first finder. It aslo has some small trinkets in it.

To find the cache you will have to tour the cemetery and answer some questions to get the coordinants for the final cache.

1) John Coffey died in January of 1864. What day did he pass away on? (AA)

2) In what year did Michel Goff pass away? 18(BB)

3) Experience lived to be 71 and 4 months and _ Days. (CC)

4) What month was Micah Derckerman Born? (D)

5) 9/11 will forever be in our memories. One head stone has this date inscribed on it. What is the year that goes with this date? 18(EE)

Please remember that you are in a cemetery and use respect and caution when looking for the answers to the clues. Enjoy and Happy Caching.
