We go to Tecumseh all the time, so we wouldn't normally put it on our list of towns to visit. One balmy evening in February, though, we visited a cemetery there that we'd never really noticed before. We were on our way from Topeka to Lawrence on Highway 40, and we noticed a sign that simply said "Bauer" alongside the road.
Well, being in the mood to look around, we got out of the van and did just that. We found that several families are all buried there together. Some of the graves are from the 1800s. The boys really enjoyed looking at all the different graves and reading the names of the people who are buried there, and we also had fun trying to guess at the relationships between the various deceased folks.
