Neil, No there is not. His father, that is the grandfather of the person whose stone that is, was the Rabbi in another town in Bavaria and officiated at his son's wedding.

Is there any possibility father was not Jewish—or not halachically Jewish because his mother wasn’t?  That is most often my experience with Hebrew names that only reference the mother.
