János Adám - help translating old headstone
Posted by: Robert Adams (ID *****2642) Date: June 04, 2007 at 15:22:44
  of 921

My great-grandfather's headstone is located in Philipsburg Cemetery in California, PA. I am looking for help in translating the inscriptions: it is an old three pronged cross.

'Line 1': ADAM JANOS ('S' BACKWARDS)
'Line 2': SZ (BACKWARDS) ÜLLET 187? - (July 1879 my guess)
'Line 3': M E C H A LT

At the bottom is his death year of 1921. With a little digging, we uncovered another inscription at the base that left us thoroughly confused: 6H12.

We have no idea what his death date is and think that strange inscription holds some clue. It is written as follows:
1921
6H12

The 'ones' are of the same tool along with the 'twos'. The 6H is where I need some help along with the meaning of 'Line 3'.

Regards..
