18271 Tombstone

3/9/2011 7:12 PM This image was first posted in 2004 as #788. A recent replier suggested that I repost it. The first line is Baruch ben Y(aakov) A(rie) Hofheimer. My main question is what is stated in the third line which appears to contain the name Rivka, although the rest also interests me? Was Rivka the mother of Baruch? Jacob-Loew Wolf (Yaakov Arie ben Benyomin) was married twice - to Regine and Gidel. Other documents state that Baruch's mother was Gidel, but Rivka could have been Regine's Hebrew name.

I add that the Buttenhausen cemetery has been restored and the letters have been repainted, probably by someone who does not know Hebrew.

3/9/2011 7:11 PM This is the front of the picture of my great uncle.

Does anyone have any ideas how old he looks? I dont know when he was born. Trying to work it out. Is the chair/pose common for photos of that time?

Thanks for the help

Michael
