This is the first of two images showing the death of Zirel (Zierl, Zirl), wife of Hirsch Lewinsohn. For this image, I would like a transcription and translation of the term in the "Gewerbe" column which I hope will give me her husband's occupation. I would also like a transcription and translation of the far right column heading and the words contained there. The 1800 date appears in many documents for this family and I'd like to know what it represents.

4/16/2014 11:08 PM I can read some of it.

Place is Mogasen.

Gewerbe: Behrenfrau
Age: 32
Day of Death: Am Ersten Januar 1800. Neun d dreissig - f? Acht Uhr.
Day of Death: January 1, 1800. Time of day, not entirely clear to me.
4/16/2014 11:43 PM These are documents from the 19th century (i.e. 1800 and onwards) in this case, 1839.
The death occurred in January, the time of death was 8 o'clock, and something in the text should clarify if it was morning or evening.

I am not proficient in reading this old script, but have seen many Austrian/Polish documents containing this information - see also my comment on next part of image.
4/17/2014 10:51 AM In Progasen deceased : Zierl married with Hirsch Loewin John , prrofession wife of a teacher (, Lehrersfrau), aged 32 , day of decease : On January 1, 1839, early ((in the morning)) eight o'clock.
Announced Progasen by ?? Citizen
4/17/2014 10:56 AM Lehrerfrau: Teacher's wife.
4/17/2014 10:57 AM The good reading of her profession is Lehrerfrau (professor) and she died 1st January 1839. The number of the death record - 1 - shows that this is the 1st death record of the year; she was 32 years old. It is not written Lewinsohn, but Loewinsohn.

Friendly.
