This is the second image of 4 of the same stone. I need a translation to see if this is my gg grandfather's stone. Appreciate any help in translating and the date of death is of particular interest.

Thank you!

Stuart

4/13/2011 11:13 PM The stone has an acrosticon - the vertical larger letters in the beginning of the each line - indicating the man's name was Khayim Yaakov.

The text describes him a learned leader of his community.

The horizontal name, on the "bar",is Avraham Aahron - perhaps the other photos can tell us who it is.
