[translator's note: great yiches!]
8/3/2009 This one is full of great genealogical information and a lot of poetic descriptive phrases. As best as I can determine:
Here lies a pious and dear man, having a spirit of charity, dedicated? to the protection of the righteous. The honorable Shmuel Yitzhak son of the pious old man
Alikim Getzil, son-in-law of Yisroel M'shulem Yostman, grandson of Armon Magir
Died at 53 years, 9 Shevat 5694.

The father, grandfather and father-in-law have a number of abbreviations attached to their names, indicating titles.
8/6/2009 Clearly the first guys son. Mot of the same descriptors
Shmuel Yitzchak bend Elyakim Getzel. Son-in-law of the rabbi Yisrael Meshulam Yostman. Descendant of (same name for grandson as descendent and also could mean that either he or his father in law is descendent of) name of rabbi is abbreviated so not sure
died at 33 years 9 shevat 5694
