is all the information that could be lifted from the headstone.
You can also search for the family names on other headstones on the
Headstone Name Search page, and then
clicking on the links on that page will bring you to a close-up
the corresponding headstone.
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.
An (upright) man
[ ] Baruch
That he departed on the first of Tishre
Year 5609 (1849)
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life
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).
