This is the headstone of my great-great grandparents Jette Rosenberger Buehler and Jakob Buehler. He was born in Pflaumloch and she was born in Oberdorf. They lived in Kleinerdlingen. He died in 1865, she died in 1908. I don't know what other information you need, but if you have any questions, my email is I can also send you a bigger image of the headstone. They are buried in the Wallerstein Cemetery. Thank you so much.

The last 4 Hebrew lines on both sides are acronymical verses (1st letter of each line is the corresponding letter of the burried person's name) praising the deceased.

jakob's date of death seems to be off by one day. (tuesday v. wednesday.)

his honorific is usually used for a rabbi, but on gravestones is commonly used just as a sign of respect.

the transliteration of "kleinerdlinken" from german to hebrew to english may have mangled the spelling of the placename.
