I need a full translation for the Hebrew on this matzevah. I can only figure out a few words. Is this the Hebrew information for Alexander Reivich (on the left) who died in 1976 or is this another person? He had a brother who died in 1918. Date of death in Hebrew may be determinative factor.
Alexander Reivich was my half uncle. Alexander'wife Sadie was buried in another location.

Would greatly appreciate help with this.

6/14/2020 4:07 PM The Hebrew seems to be the brother of Alex. I can't say This is an interesting monument.
The Hebrew on top state "The sons of Malka".
Here lies the unmarried young man Chaim Mordechai Milka, passed away on 30 Tishrei, 5679 (Sun, 6 October 1918). May his soul be bound in the bond of life
6/14/2020 4:17 PM The date of death might also have been October 5th (if he died after sunset).
6/15/2020 6:45 AM Two things, 1- if he dies after sunset it would be 7 October, not 5 October & 2- His name Chaim Mordecai is followed by a name on the next line that is not Malka. I think it says "Silka".
The fact is that the top line says "sons of Malka" over both nemes, so they must have been brothers.
