6/9/2013 5:03 PM The essential genealogical information is:

Yitzhak son of Zev HaLevi
died Sunday 17 Av 5654 (August 19, 1894)

The pitcher symbol at the top of the stone is for a descendent of the tribe of Levi, one of the twelve tribes of Israel, thus "HaLevi" = The Levite. The title passes from father to son.
6/12/2013 10:37 PM The first written section below the nice engraving reads:
His soul went to rest on Sunday
17 Av 5654
This burial monument for an important man
Our teacher and rabbi Yitzchak sonn of Zeev the levite of blessed memory.

The larger section extols him some more and also said he died at an old age.

Best,
Madeleine
