Description   EN   

Straightforward cache in a very historical Mount Gilead spot near the old "Church of Morven" (long since gone) and the Old Presbyterian Cemetery. Park at Public Parking ONLY and take an easy walk to the cache area.

The cache is dedicated to Lodwick Hardenbrook, a Private in the Revolutionary War in Colonel Abraham Quick's Regiment, Somerset County, NJ. He fought in the battles of Germantown and Monmouth. After the war, Hardenbrook purchased land from the U.S. Government in the wilderness of central Ohio, and became the land owner of what is now all of Mount Gilead, Ohio.

Be sure to visit Lodwick Hardenbrook's very nondescript grave at N40 32.763 W082 49.692 and if the flag I placed there is not standing straight, please fix it.

Please park ONLY at the green Public Parking signs, or you will make this a very difficult find! It is a short walk from the parking spot: N 40° 32.840 W 082° 49.704 (Marion Street near Main)

Ohio Cemetery Laws apply -- dawn to dusk only. The cache is not near the grave markers. Although it is well screened from local residents, please beware of muggles!

It took several minutes of walking around, but I eventually spotted the cache. I imagine that this cemetery doen't get too many visitors---I was happy to pay my respects today after finishing up with the cache. Thanks!

1 11 October 2010 DJCreekCachers Found it

First to Log on Opencaching.us. Found at 3:30 p.m. on 10-11-10

We drove 90 miles from Dayton, OH to grab several of the geocaches in Mt. Gilead. Why did we drive this far? Because these are the closest caches listed on Opencaching.us.

We didn't follow the directions very well and wound up parking over at the other cemetery. We bushwhacked down the holler and up the the other one and finally made our way over to the old cemetery. We found Lodwick's Grave quickly and noticed two US Flags. They are in good shape. After that, we made our way over to the cache and found it pretty quickly. This was the first of six caches we found today.
