          Requiescant in Pace   AMEN   (over main gate)

     This cemetery is located in Somerset township in the S/W corner of section 25. The cemetery is fenced and well cared for. Most of the names are Bohemian/Czech and many of the inscriptions are in this language. I have recorded some of the legible inscriptions, as many indicated where these people were originally from.

      This cemetery as well as others in this county is the resting place of many of the  earliest Steele County Pioneer Settlers. I have put together some reference material at end of the records so as to help in the interpretation of these records. I have recorded the actual inscriptions, names and dates as I saw and read them. I learned the months and the regular used marker information, so that I could interbred the information and data better. Some of the inscriptions are probably religious references and some indicate where they came from in Europe.

         The following translations were made from some of the inscriptions in the Litomysl Cemetery of Somerset township, Steele County Minnesota.

     The recordings were made by Ron Houghtelin of Owatonna Minnesota and were translated from the Bohemian and Chech language to English by Mrs Albert Rysavy of Somerset township who lives just south of the Litomysl Church and Cemetery. A thank you to Mrs Rysavy for this great help in better understanding the meanings and will be of benefit to future generations of families from this community.
