Is the Yiddish given name Hirschel equivalent to the Hebrew name Chaim?

I am trying to determine whether someone who was identified in early 1800s
Kempen, Posen, Prussia, records as Hirschel would have been listed on a late
1800s tombstone as the father of a deceased son in St. Louis, Mo., as Chaim.
