Here lies Rachela Mirah(?) daughter of Yehuda Leib of blessed memory. died 11 th day of the month of Elul 5653 or 5623. (hard to read). so the date is either 8/23/1893 or 8/26/1863.

May her soul be bound in eternal life..
I had to trim the image. I was having trouble with the name and date. Thank you Risa Dunn

It's hard to be definitive with this image, so I will just add my opinion.

The Hebrew on the first line reads-
Ha'betulah Marat Rachel
Meaning the unmarried Ms. Rachel

I agree with your reading of the fathers name as Yehudah Leib.

I read the year as 5623.

Good luck, jack
