I can only partially read it, a list of ancestors beginning with the progenitor of the line, the surname of their wife and some brief biographical notes, places they lived (the first ancestor at one point relocates to 樟树埔 for example, which I think is a village near Huizhou which is also mentioned earlier) and I think the state of their grave in the case of the "fifth ancestor" (second pic). Hopefully someone better can come along and say more. One character I don't really recognise but suspect might be saying where their grave is seems to start each entry.
