If possible, the transcribed Hebrew lifted from the headstone and its English translation are given below, plus any useful notes about the translation or history of the writing.

Headstone 163

 

 

 

 

 

Here lies
An (upright) man
[         ] Baruch
Bam Avraham
That he departed on the first of Tishre
Year 5609 (1849)
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life
 


If the stands for 1st day of Tishre, then it would
have been more likely to have written Rosh
Hashanah. The date of 5609 may be questioned if only because there appears another letter to
the right, similar to that which is directly below for
the acronym. (Each letter on the far left of the
photograph appears discolored).
