“INDIANA SPIRIT QUEST”
Pioneer Cemetery (All photos by THE SHADOW)
The Indiana Spirit Quest series of geocaches will take you to a number of historic cemeteries built by Hoosier Pioneers. In less than a year, the quest has grown to over a hundred caches hidden in eleven north Indiana counties, and the hiders have grown to four cacher teams, each comprised of A Man and His Dog...Come with us and take a virtual tour via the cache page galleries of interesting Tombstones , both historic and modern... PRAIRIEPARTNERS has set a record for one-day ISQ finds on 10-16-2004 at 55! 121 cacher teams have logged over 1,650 finds.
INDIANA SPIRIT QUEST #115
” PVT. ETHAN ROGERS, 1ST CONN. REGT."
The Shadow has selected Wright Cemetery, Salem Township, Steuben County, for this caching extravaganza. Even tho you cannot see him, Listen carefully to what the facinating SHADOW has to say about this place:
Come with me on a tour of Wright Cemetery, old and rather large. A newer addition has the south side of the highway.
There is a loop drive around the north side (use when dry). I really liked this site as it does give the feeling of privacy and seclusion. In warmer weather, a good deal of time could be spent here just walking around. There are a lot of interesting, older markers to look at. Many are in excellent condition and quite legible. The grounds are well kept.
This cemetery is the home of many veterans, from most all of our wars, including one from the Revolution, Ethan Rogers. His location is 168 feet @ 278 degrees from the old cache. Now he is 134' @ 234 degrees.Whoa!! Now from cache to Rogers in 212 feet at 138 degrees... Please pay your respects there.
Thanks; Lamont, give our regards to the lovely Margo!
The cache container was a small camo'd match holder. Now it's a small loc-n-loc. BYOP. Park with care. If you find a fallen US flag, please stick it back in the ground. As always, please be respectful, and cache in, trash out.
