Family[change | change source]
Tecumseh has a brother named Tenskwatawa. Tenskwatawa was known as the town drunkard in the town until he changed and became religious. When Tecumseh left for a business trip and left Tenskwatawa in charge, he didn't do a good job. He started a war with his leadership, and a while after Tecumseh returned, Tecumseh was killed. Tecumseh also has a son named Cheeseekau.

According to Laxar, there are several competing claims regarding Tecumseh's final resting place. The bones found on Walpole Island do not contain a thigh bone, which is critical because Tecumseh broke his thigh while riding a horse when he was younger. Other competing claims for his resting place include the east end of London, Ontario, or alternatively, that he is buried near the site of his death.
