14542Re: Need Help Reading a Grave Stone
- Jul 23, 2014Hi Bob,
Here's my take on it. The first small line is just about entirely unreadable, but it most likely says something like "Тут спочивае (Here lies/rests)".
Рож?. (Born in)
ЗАВАДЧА 112 (ZAVADCHA 112)*
Рож?. (Born 1870)
Below this the words are too tough for me to see, other than "1903". The line I marked with an asterisk has a spelling error -- it should be "ЗАВАДКА". I wasn't sure at first, but the gravestone shown on findagrave.com for Maria Vansacs clearly says "ROD.IZ SPISA -- ZAVATKA", which I think is pretty good corroborating evidence. I'd guess this refers to a village named Zavadka in the Spiš region of Slovakia. Not sure what the 112 on the gravestone refers to, though.
