אבינו יהודא ב"ר זעליג אבעלסקי
איש ישר הולך עם אלהים ואנשים
נקטף בימי חלדו
(ארבעים ושמנה לימי חייו)
בן ובת עזב לאנחות
והוא הלך למנוחות
נפטר ביום ו' כ"ג אדר ראשון
שנת תר"ע לפ"ק

here is buried
our father yehuda son of mr zelig abelsky
an honest man who walked with god and men
cut down in the days of his life
(48 years were the days of his life)
son and daughter he left to sighing
and he went to his rest
died friday 23 adar 1
of the year 5670 (4 march 1910)"
