I am indebted to Margaret Carey for the following additional inscription
and information.

James Todd of Ballyhunsley died 31st August 1887 aged 65 years.
Wife, Sarah Ann died 15th June 1906 aged 75 years.
Daughter, Sarah, aged 2 and infant son.
Son, Samuel Todd, 11th December 1930, aged 68 years.
Daughter, Eliza, 28th May 1942, aged 74 years.
Daughter, Lena, 9th May 1944, aged 69 years.

Additional FYI: James Todd and his wife, Sarah Ann Deane were married
19th May 1854 in Ballyrashane Meeting House. The baptismal records for
the Dunluce Presbyterian Church in Bushmills show that James and Sarah
Ann had a daughter, Sarah, born 3rd September 1868. Then there was
another daughter, Sarah Selina, born on 9th September 1871. This second
Sarah Selina would appear to be the "Lena" who is listed in the census
returns of 1901 and 1911 and also on the headstone. Samuel, Eliza and
Lena never married but lived together on the farm at Ballyhunsley until
their deaths.
