In memory of John J. Yeagal, dates, go with God my love, your loving wife Natalie

Thats nice. I haven't found any memorials but have stumbled over a original bench mark left by surveyors out in the middle of nowhere. Oldest one was 1921. looked on a 1950 s map and confirmed it.

I came across one a couple years ago. I didn’t take a pic but it was homemade, just a piece of metal flashing with holes punched to spell the memorial. The guy was a young man killed in a car crash in a nearby town. He had a wife and child and I’m guessing he liked to hunt that ridge.

I have seen a couple of these over the years and one this year was cut out of metal plate with a photo of the guy engraved on it holding a very good Mule Deer he had shot in the area. It was really nicely done.

I wonder if the departed's ashes were also scattered in the area? I couldn't think of a better final resting place for my earthly remains than some of my favorite elk hunting spots.

That is a great find! (And more than my wife would do!)

I know a ridge on Wyoming where I want my ashes. If she sees that ridge, she will dump them out the window and mutter "Close enough".

Those are great finds. I have found several old graves in an NC National Forest. Some with dates going back to 1700s…

I have found a few on a steelhead stream here in Northern Wisconsin. The one had fly's that fisherman would hang onto with a note from the guys wife thanking all who placed them. Pretty cool.

Well my “me to” story is I found some plane wreckage. After looking it over for a few I home to the top of the ridge. Found a small array of metal from the wreckage, some vases and faded plastic flowers and a plaque. All had been knocked askew. The plaque had the name of 12 or13 crew members of a c-130 that had crashed into the mountain in a storm, 1983. all had died.

I put the stuff back, had a moment of silence and moved on.

Z Barebow, buy her a drone so she can easily get you to the spot that you want!

This one is on a neighbor's property. They replaced the grave stone before the original was totally unreadable. Evidently it's from an early homestead. We've also found others in the middle of nowhere.

I worked a gobbler one morning on very steep ground overlooking the Elk river here in WV. Gobbler didn't show up, but when I got up to leave the pine I was sitting against had grown around a headstone. I snooped around and 2 brothers were buried there during the civil war :( Wish I had a digital camera back then !

Elevation is about 9500' with a great view looking SW over elk country

While looking for arrowheads my son found a small group of headstones on a bluff above the creek deep in the interior of my farm. They are from the 1800’s.

This is one I found this year in Wyoming. It's not a very old one but thought it was pretty neat considering the location I found it.

I did a little research on Bill and found his obituary.

William (Bill) Burton Kuhn, born November 4, 1945, passed away on November 3, 2011. Bill was born in Casper Wyoming to John Thomas Kuhn Sr. of Montana and Charlotte (Humborg) Kuhn of Wyoming.

Bill grew up in Casper Wyoming and served honorably in the United States Army. Bill owned and ran BK Alignment for twelve years. Bill loved to hunt, fish, and spend time with his family and his dog Judd.

He is survived by his brothers, Don and wife Ramona Kuhn, Tom and wife Alice Kuhn, Richard and wife Audra Kuhn, and sons, Jeff and wife Talli Kuhn, Brent and wife Chrissi Kuhn, one daughter, Lori (Kuhn) Warner and her husband Jeff Warner, and seven grandchildren.

He loved the outdoors. He always looked forward to the next time he could go fishing and hunting. Bill was always smiling and would go out of his way to help anyone that he could. His motto was it's not the quantity of life, but the quality of life you live. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Bill was preceded in death by his father and his mother.

Services will be held on Thursday, November 10, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. at Oregon Trail Cemetery, 80 Veterans Cemetery Rd. Evansville, WY. A celebration of life will directly follow at the American Legion Post #2, 1650 English Avenue.

Condolences for the family may be left at bustardsfuneralhome.com.

I'm pretty sure mine (if placed by my exes) will read "finally" and have a faint urine odor.
