The inscription for Sarah Fagan is as follows:
"Here lies Sara Bas/(daughter of) Reb Chaim who died during the Hebrew month of Adar....May her soul be bound up in the bonds of everlasting life."

The word Reb preceeding her father's name is used as an honorific title, however, it does NOT imply rabbi...Jo
