5/16/2021 1:50 PM There are a few letters at the top of the stone which I believe are the Hebrew year, as it does not appear elsewhere. I am not 100% sure, but it looks like 5640.

---------------------------------------------
Here lies a modest woman

Mrs. RIVKAH ROSIAH, daughter of our teacher, the rabbi

Menachem Mendil

She passed away 12 Kislev

May her soul be bound up in the bond of life.
--------------------------------------------------------

Her father has an abbreviation in front of his name that represents the words "our teacher, the Rabbi". This means that he had rabbinic ordination; he was not necessarily the rabbi of a synagogue.

The 12th of Kislev of the year 5640 began at sunset on November 26th, 1879, and ended at sunset on the 27th.
