12/2/2012 4:28 PM Here LIes a penitent woman
Chiyka daughter of Mr. Aharon
Died 26th Shevat 5743
May her soul be bound up for life eternal.

Here Lies a penitent man, Avraham
Tuviah, son of Mr. Moshe
Died 1st of shevat, 5719

I'm pretty sure that's 5719, which would not correspond to 1956 but rather the fall of 1958 or 1959.
12/2/2012 6:31 PM I agree that there is date confusion for Abraham.
1 Shevat 5719 = January 10, 1959
1 Shevat 5716 = January 14, 1956
