    The full Hebrew name is שלמה זלמן בן יוסף

    The Hebrew date looks rather like כ”ז ניסן תרע”ה or תרע”ח definitely not תרע”ז which is what the english 1917 translates to, but April 19 1917 was indeed כ”ז ניסן So I guess the engraver made a mistake

    ציון לנפש הרב
    שלמה נהי’ כשה פזורה
    זעק יזעקו בני עדתו
    לגבר הוקם על בתורתו
    מי יורנו דרך ישרה
    נשארנו יתומים אמנו אלמנה
    בן ששים ושבע שנה
    יצא רוחו שמי מעונה
    וגוו שב לעפרו הנה
    סוף הימים יחיהו תמים
    פאר יכהן בבית עולמים

    נפטר כ”ז ניסן שנת תרע”ז

    Solomon Cohen
    Died April 19 1917
    Aged 67 Years
    May his soul rest in peace

    Also I believe the credit to the photo is miss-typed, and should instead read: Jewish “Morgen”, or “Morning” (as its Yiddish & English names, respectively)
