I would be very appreciative of help with this tombstone translation particularly the Hebrew writing above Joseph Zarchin and Sarah (Zarchin) Kashdon's names. Thank you WM

6/2/2019 9:29 PM Hello,
If you have a higher-resolution photo, that would be helpful. Zooming in to this one blurs the writing. I will do my best.

Ida: Here lies CHAYA BAYLEH, daughter of Reb Moshe, died the 29th of Elul 5709

Joseph: Here lies YOSEF, son of Reb Zalman, died the 26th of Iyar, 5712

Sarah: Here lies SARAH LEAH, daughter of Reb Zalman, died the 16th of Tevet 5722

[Note that 'Reb' is an honorific; it does not mean rabbi.]

Again, I'd love to see a clearer image. At the very least, if you're interested, please send me the secular dates of death, and I can double-check what I've provided for the Hebrew dates.
