    Azi,
    Rabbi Shapiro is still living BA”H, they are direct descendants of Reb Pinchas Schapiro known as reb Pinchas Koritzer Ztz”l.

    Its an intresting style Matzieve, I dont think you would see a lay-down matzieve in Europe on the Kevarim of Chasidicshe rebbes.

    It appears to be a Rabbinic American style tzion, similar to RJJ, RAMA”Z, Rav Hillel Klien est.

    Volozhin,
    Its still hard to name it a “American Style” based on this few rabbanim, while a vast majority have the europen Traditional tumbstones.

    Azi,
    He has an Haskomeh on the Lekutim Yekurim, it appears that he knew Rabbi Shochet well, does the son continue in a Hasidic Rebbe fashion or just as a Rabbi?
