This stone is partially buried, but that does not interfere with much of the inscription.

The third line of the main inscription is problematic and this is where the man's first name appears.  It seems to be Eliakim something ben Rabbi Chaim Yehoshua ben something Shelomo.  (The Chaim Yehoshua seems to be someone significant.

The date on the stone is Thursday, the first day of Rosh Hodesh Elul (30 Av) 5631 (17 August 1871).
