Re: Reading a Headstone from Warsaw Cemetery #poland

I looked at the photo again.  I enlarged the בר section.  I found that the abbreviation mark, which I assumed was missing through an engraver’s error, is actually present above the letters: ב״ר.  Look above the right side of the reysh.

Tzipa passed in 1911.
1. I want to know if it was common to write  bar (son of ) instead of bas ( daughter of) at that time and place
2. Her Father seems to be Leib and Her husband was Eliezer. Was it common to list the husband on the headstone or could it be someone else?
3. What does א''ר signify?
