12/30/2012 7:18 PM The date is at the end of the last full line.
Year is 5672
Day is during the holiday of Sukkot.
Sukkot fall on the 15th of the month of Tishri and lasts eight days. The first day of Sukkot in 5672 was Sept 26, 1912. (Google Sukkot for more info)
I'm not sure of which of the eight days is shown. Might be the eve of the second intermediate day.
1/1/2013 5:45 AM This stone is for a husband and wife. The information on the last lines appear to be split between the husband and wife. The right side is the husbands information stating that his father's name was Rabbi Ephraim Fishel and that he passed away in 5671 (Perhaps the word prior is the month of Kislev which would be approx December 1910. Not sure of an exact date).

The wife's father's name was David and she died on what looks like the 5th day of Sukkot 5672 (which would appear to be October 11. 1911).
1/2/2013 8:57 AM After looking at response #2, I am changing my reading

4 Kislev 5671 (Dec 5, 1910) in agreement with response#2
and, I am going with the 2nd intermediate day of Sukkot, 5672, (Oct 9, 1911)
