Headstone B-40

Row 4, Col 7

A broken stone
A man
He walked [the waters?]
From the family [Washlin]
[                   ]
Our teacher our Rabbi Hayiim Tzvi
the son of our teacher our Rabbi Avraham
The Cohen, may his memory be for blesing
He departed with a good name
[                             ]
In the year 5642 (1882)
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life
