Could it be an acronym for the church he once attended, not the one where he is buried? ie: Zion Valley Baptist Church or something similar? Maybe he was buried in a cemetery different from that of where he once worshipped. Or he's actually buried elsewhere and the stone you see is a memorial marker only. The numbers indicate where he is buried in the other cemetery?

OR

Could it be a military designation or number from the civil war, like a Zouaves Regiment or something similar?

or something similar to this inscription from the US genweb WVa Tombstone site, where zbrc means Zella Bly Ross Crews?

Crews
