Headstone H-35

Row 4, Col 5

Here lies buried

A morally upright woman among women
Known for her modesty for the sake of
righteous and for goodness of heart
Miriam Hedah
The daughter of R Eliezer, may his memory be for blessing
Of the House of
Shamashowitz

She departed with a good name
On the 10th day of the month of Nisan
In the year 5662 (1902).  So she departed.
May her memory be for blessing.
