This old and broken stone, with raised lettering, appears to say Shabbat, Erev Rosh Hodesh Nisan 5560 (1800), but Erev Rosh Hodesh was a Wednesday that year.

The Nisan is definite as the year appears to be, so the problem is probably with the precise date.

The grave is for a man, but the part with the name is broken.
