3 Lambs of the Dowis Family

Infants of W. C. & H. J. Dowis

All three passed away just before the age of 3 months. The first two were twins. All were laid to rest at Duluth Church Cemetery in Gwinnett County, Georgia. As a reminder, the lamb symbolizes purity, innocence, and gentleness. It is one of the most common images found on infant gravestones.
