[Bann Valley] Newbie and questioning Kilrea grave date

G'day all

I believe I am a descendent of one of the Graham families of Kilrea, in particular James Graham and Mary Woods of Moneysallin.  I'm from Brisbane Australia.

I've been relying on the Torrens website for much of my information but have just come up against my first question mark.

I think the year of death for James Graham shown in the first source (1896) is wrong (possible transcription error) primarily because the same James Graham appears in the 1901 Census (shown below).  Circumstantial evidence to support this hypothesis is the order of the
 names on the gravestone does not appear to be in the order I would expect given the dates shown for deaths.
