Notes Aaron is CemeteryScribes I13542. Son Abraham is NA762 and BSNSK 021. Michael is probably BSNSK 020; Well this is more a process of elimination as the characters used are weird but I believe its Aharon b Solomon.

The letter for ‘h’ (hei) is around the wrong way.. The letter for ‘r’ (resh) is written as a ‘c'(kaf) but as the ‘r’ is used in both Aharon and bar it can only be that, then the word for Shlomo (Solomon) is normally Shin-lamed-mem-hei, so 4 characters. I can see that the second letter is ‘L’ and the last is ‘H’ so I think it must be Shlomo.
