I was wondering if someone can please try to translate the Hebrew into English on this stone? I know it’s hard to see, I was hoping something can come out of it, thank you so much!

Sorry.
6/19/2013 6:31 PM I think the first name of the deceased is Yitzhak.
He is son of Yakov.

Israel Epstein had a double given name, the first of which seems to be Yitzchak but I cannot make out the second. If I were to make a wild guess, it might be Leib or Dov, but that is purely a guess.

The name of his father was Yaakov.....Jo

6/25/2013 8:07 PM Yitzhak Leyb son of Yakov.
