Tombstone Tuesday – Krišs Kuntzendorfs, 1835-1908

In this series, I am providing pictures of tombstones from Latvian cemeteries, all with death dates prior to 1945. I do not have any further information on the people mentioned.

Photo taken by me, September 2012. Click to enlarge.

Name: Krišs Kuntzendorfs, born March 13, 1835, died September 16, 1908

Inscription: “Nu dusiet Dieva lauciņā, Kā jaukā klusā dārziņā, Kamēr jūs Kristus modinās, Un debesīs pagodinās.” (Now sleep in God’s pasture, as in a pleasant quiet garden, until Christ wakes you, and honours you in heaven.”)

Location: Mārtiņi cemetery, Rīga

Words on the tombstone are in old Latvian orthography, my transcription is in modern orthography.
