I saved this challenge until I came across an interesting cemetery. This didn’t happen until last week when my friend D and I took a tour of some old churches on the west side of Lake Simcoe. Two of the churches had cemeteries attached to the church grounds.
In the last cemetery we found the tombstone for Stephen Leacock, the famous writer and humorist. For more information about Leacock’s life look here.
