The Unye (Oinoe) Tombstone - Translators wanted

We are looking for people able to translate an inscription on a tombstone from the 19th century that was unearthed recently in the Black Sea town of Unye in Turkey. The Greek name of the town was Oinoe (Οινοη) and the language on the tombstone seems to be Pontian Greek. (The Greeks left the town around 1924.) A picture of the tombstone was given to me by Mehmet Ilhan, a native of the town with a strong interest in the town's history. (See http://unyezile.com/rodi.htm and http://www.unyehaber.com/index.php/content/view/392/55/.) A reduced size picture of the inscription is shown below. By clicking on the image you can see a full size version.
