Headstone F-14

Row 1, Col 15

Here lies buried

A pure and upright man
An elder and [his days] filled
A wonder in Torah and the awe of God
His treasure.  He fear God [                   ]
As his foundation.  Mr
Ben Zion the son of Noach, may his memory be for blessing
Yankelowitz
He departed with a good name
On a Tuesday the 20th day
Of the month of Iyar
In the year 5648 (1888)
May his soul be bound in the bonds of life
