I have now acquired many photos of various family tombstones for my
mother's family buried in Phila., PA. I cannot read or write Hebrew
(for which I now am very sorry). I asked a rabbi/family friend to help
me translate the names. Some of them are, to my experience, unusual.
I'm hoping that some of you more knowledgeable JGers can help me with
mgm (Anna Helen) = Osnia (or Osnea) Enya
mgf (Samuel [Simon]) = Yeshayoh
pgf (Samuel) = Osias and Sheyah
pgu (Samuel) = Sendor
pcousin (Lippa) = Lipa
All of these are as written and spelled by the rabbi. Sorry I can't
give you any additional info.
It isn't clear what you want to know.
In the same order as you have written above:
Probably Osnat (a Biblical/Egyptian name)
Hosea and Isaiah
A Yiddish name; can't help you
But the Rabbi surely knows all that, and Lipa as well.
