8/26/2013 10:40 PM I can't get all of the Hebrew, but the name is "Tsvi Yakov son of Chaim." Tsvi, Hebrew for "deer," was the equivalent of the Yiddish name Hirsch, often translated into English as Harry.
8/27/2013 6:04 AM Here is buried the unmarried man Zvi Yaakov, son of Haim Leib Dunn. Died 13 Av, 5671.

AE on gravestones means "aevum" (in Latin: age at the time of death).
8/30/2013 10:08 AM Here lies the (student) young man, Zvi Yaakov son of Reb Chaim Leib Dunn. Please contact me regarding this stone. I am doing extensive research with other members of the Dunsky family. Zvi is a big name throughout the family . There is possibly a connection here to us. Thank you, Risa Dunn
