REEDSBURG, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say some bones brought home by two children playing in some woods near a Reedsburg cemetery are likely those from a mid- to late-1800s gravesite.
The children's parents called police Saturday evening. The children led police to a small pile of dirt on the Greenwood Cemetery property where they found the bones. The site was used by the cemetery to store dirt taken from more recent gravesite excavations.
