I have most of this translated already. There are three items I've not been able to get an explanation for and would appreciate your ideas. 1. I do not know what the very bottom line says. I'd like an explanation of that. 2. On the 4th line the second word (kof, hay it appears) is not one that anyone has been able to explain. I know that it says he's the son of Aaron Cukor/Tzukor but there is that short word. 3. What is the first word of the 5th line?

1/27/2013 5:01 PM 1. the very bottom line says that "his mother's name was Khantche" (diminutive of Khanna)
2. the word in the 4th line (which also appears at the end of line 2 from the top) is a contraction and means "as mister"
3. the first word in the fifth line means "died".
