4/17/2008 Hi Dorothy,

My educated guess is that the Hebrew name is:

Yiramayhu Ben Hershel
(Jeremiah son of Hershel)

Hope that this will give you an additional lead...Jo
4/17/2008 Yrmiyahoo the son of Hershel
4/17/2008 Yirmiyahu ben Hirshel
4/17/2008 The name reads Yirmiyahu ben Hershel (Yirmiyahu the son of Hershel)

Have a kosher and happy Passover,

4/20/2008 Hello: I just saw your posting regarding this tombstone. You've probably already had responses on this, but just in case you haven't...the Hebrew says Yarmihu/Yeremihu ben Hershel, which makes sense if his English name was Jerome. Hope that might help in some way, and Happy Pesach.
Best wishes,
Philis
4/20/2008 Translation of Hebrew:
Yirmihayu ben Herschel, means: Yirmihayu son of Herschel.
4/20/2008 The only Hebrew words are :
4/20/2008 The only Hebrew words are Yirmiyahoo son of Hershl.
The name is the Hebrew name of the prophet from the Bible.
Happy Passover,
Amir Rubinstein,

4/20/2008 IT IS WRITTEN JERMY (YERMIHAO )SUN OF HERSHL
