Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Photos in the travel bug logs are appreciated.  I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

beadgreenstonetriangle

This is one of a series of large beads obtained from different places and converted into travel bugs.  They are named for Texas towns with interesting names or histories.

Weeping Mary is in southern Cherokee County.  The community was probably first settled soon after the Civil War by freed slaves from neighboring plantations.  It is said to have been named for Mary Magdalene's weeping at the tomb of Jesus.  Alternately, variations of a local legend state that a black woman named Mary wept from the devastating loss of her land to a white man or that the woman, after making a pact with the area's freedmen that no one would sell their land to the white settlers, wept over the loss of the community when that promise was broken.  

Residents established a Baptist church.  A local school for black children was operation by 1896, when it had enrollment of forty.  In the 1930s Weeping Mary had a school and a few houses. The school was closed around the time of World War II, but in 1990 a church and a few scattered houses still remained in the area. The population was forty in 2000.
