I would like a translation of the Hebrew portion of the stone. The man's name was Charles HARRIS, born in Prussia. I'm also curious about the death date at the bottom that reads, Mar 23, 5621. Thank you. John P. Hatch, San Antonio, Texas

2/24/2013 8:03 PM Here lies a pure and honest man
Tzvi son of Yechezkel (Ezekiel in English)
died at the height of his life, (or choice age)
to the sorrow of his wife and children
passed away 12th Holy Sabbath month Nissan 5621

That was March 23, 1861 It is unusual to place the Hebrew calendar year after the civil day & month.
