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.

Top Inscription: Jāņa Ābola ģimenes kapi (Jānis Ābols’ Family Grave)
Name: Jānis Ābols, born June 5, 1860, died December 24, 1913.
Bottom Inscription: “Dzīvs ar vien es traucu steidzu, Ātri dzīves gaitu beidzu, Klusums svēts uz kapa valda, Sapņu (?) ilgas – dusa salda.” (“When I lived I rushed, And quickly finished life’s road, Holy silence rules here on the grave, dreams (?) and longings – sleep is sweet”).
Location: Ikšķile Lutheran Cemetery, Ikšķile
