Description   EN   

This cache will take you one of the oldest Cemetery's in Western New York. There are many interesting sites to see. The resting place of Joseph Ellicott 1760–1826 He laid out not only Batavia but the City of Buffalo and was one of the first judges in the state. More info can be found here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Ellicott_(1760-1826)

You can also find a near by cache GCM983 This is the monument to William Morgan who exposed and then was murdered by area Free Masons

Another is the final resting place of Confederate Maj Philemon Tracy Killed in action at Sharpsburg MD 17 Sept 1862. The cache is a decon container marked with the OCUS logo. It should be a pretty easy find. Absolutely no night caching! I hope you enjoy this peaceful place like I do.

I looked today and its gone. With the recent vandals I think the caretakers have cleaned out the caches and letterboxes. Time to retire it.

If there's a cache in there (spoiler pic), I sure as heck didn't find it!! And DG DNF'd this thing twice while it was presumably in place? You sure are good at hiding stuff. And good thing I always carry hand sanitzer in the car for washing up. Laughing Great Cemetery though, very rich in history.

I looked all over for this cache and couldn't find it even had help from the lawn care crew they pointed me to the grave but no luck on the actual cache. This is right around the corner from my house so I think I might reestablish the cache site.
