From an old family tombstone, mid 1800s in US.
"LAMA 26, AP23BA, 1847 TW"
Would LAMA be a title? No one in our family line had the initials LAMA.

@bslevi,
Could it be Lana?

Might be better to take/post a photo of it so other interpretations of the inscription might be made.

@Butrflynet,
Does the cemetery have an office? The people or records there might know what some of that stands for.

Was the deceased a crossword puzzle fan?

The Holbert family descendants have been trying to solve the enigma of the two graves for 15 years now.

Not many results but quite interesting stuff to read.

The alphanumeric characters are probably a system of location in the cemetery.
