明治三十三年十月二十七日死亡
Died on October 27, 1900

釈妙了信女碑
Tombstone of Shaku Myōryō Shinnyo (Buddhist name)
"Shaku" is a male title used in Jōdo Shinshū, whereas "Shinnyo" shows that the deceased is a woman. The title should be the female form 釈尼 "Shakuni".

福岡縣粕屋郡青柳村
(The kanji for "kasu" is wrong. The correct one is 糟.)
建主 青柳藤太
Aoyagi Village, Kasuya District, Fukuoka Prefecture
(present Aoyagi, Koga City, Fukuoka Prefecture)
Erected by Aoyagi (family name) Tōta (male given name)

so her given name is Myoryo and surname is Shinnyo? or are these all parts of a Bhuddist name and not birth names?

The latter. "Shaku" and "Shinnyo" are both titles for Buddhist names.
By the way, don't you have anything to say to our replies other than pointing out unclarified issues?

If the surname of the deceased you found is Aoyagi or Aoyanagi, she must be the one who was buried there.
