Need help figuring out where this Cemetery is....

Classification: Query
I was wondering if anyone would recognize where these 2 photographs were taken? I have no clue who the people are in the photo's or the location. I did have the tombs translated to English, not sure if it is correct or not....ANY help would be great!

My Ancestors are the Zlotnick's/Slotnick's/Zolotnitzki's/Zolotnitzka's, Zlotnicki's, Zlotnicka's/Zlotnitsky's...etc. I do have my (Erica Hersh's)Family Tree open to the public, if that may help.

My Great Great Grandmother Hodes Sevin Zolotnitzki was born in Stonin, Poland/Russia and I believe her children were born in Horodyszcze(Poland/Russia, I believe it is the Ukraine right now)...

Translations(not sure which are correct, but this helps, a little):

YIVO Institute for Jewish Research:
The tombstones are in Hebrew, not Yiddish. Here's how I read them:
1. Here lies the honest, modest man, lover of knowledge and charity, Yehude son of Mikhoel Faytelevits, who died 23 Shvat 5682 (unsure; that would be February 21, 1922). May he rest in peace.
2. Here lies the honest, modest man, lover of knowledge and charity, Khayim Tsvi son of Yitskhok Leyb, who died 13 Nisan 5682 (April 11, 1922). May he rest in peace.
I hope this helps.

Dear Erica,

We were able to translate the tombstones, which happen to be in Hebrew, not Yiddish.

"Yiddish1": Buried here / Honest and humble, a lover of Torah and khesed [lovingkindness] / Teacher and Rabbi / R' Yehuda bar [son of] Mikhl / Feytelevits / Died on 23 shvat 5682 [21 February 1922] / May his soul be bound in the bundle of life [Traditional inscription; see Samuel I 25:29]

"Yiddish2": "Buried here / Honest and humble, a lover of Torah and khesed [lovingkindness] / Teacher and Rabbi / R' Chaim Zvi bar [son of] Isaac Leib / Zalatnitski / Died on 13 sivan 5682 [9 June 1922] / May his soul be bound in the bundle of life
