8/7/2013 7:49 PM Hello Risa,

It's a little difficult to read, however I can translate this part of the stone.

"Here lies our ..... Shmuel Yaakov Ben/(son of) Tzvi, HaKohane....He died during the Hebrew month of Tevez....May his soul be bound up in the bonds of eternal life.

In this instance, there is an indication that his father was descended from the priestly tribe of Kohanim.

8/8/2013 1:09 AM name: the "Rabbani" Israel yaakov. Rabbani means that he was not an authorized Rav, but was well-learnd in Judaism.

date : 8 Tevet 5626 = 26 December 1865.

I hope I translated well.
8/14/2013 12:12 PM Hi Risa,
I read the deceased's first name as yisrael Yaakov (Israel Jacob)
and the date of death as 8 Tevet 5656 (25 December 1895).
