פּ"נ

אבינו היקר כּה
יצחק אריה בר
כּתראל נפטר
בשם טוב יום

ט' לירח אייר
שנת תרסד ק

ת'נ'צ

Translation by Raphael Finkel

ovinu ha-yakar P-H / yitskhak arye bar / P-H av niftar / ...
our-father the-beloved P-H / Isaac Arye son-of-mister / P-H father departed / [date]

Maybe the family didn't know his father's name, either, and used P-H as a way of indicating ignorance.  It might stand for "Ploni ha-...", where Ploni is "John Doe".  That's just a wild guess.
