Obituary wording: What does "B'Red" mean? #general

Sharon Zane <sharonzane@...>

In the obituary of a cousin of my mother, published in Alberta, CA, it says:
"Michael was one of three brothers born to Moshe B'Red Asher Zehleg and Rebecca."
What does "B'Red" stand for? I had thought that Michael was the son of Moshe, and
the grandson of Asher Zehleg, and I wonder whether this term "B'Red" confirms that?

Complicating this is the inscription on Michael's tombstone, which in Hebrew, I am
told by two Israeli friends, reads "Michael, son of Asher Zelig."

Thank you in advance!
