Thank you Eileen and Moren. Good information.

Also, on the Ulster Covenant, Edward signed with James Henry Abraham, William Gilkinson and David Parks. Both of the latter two are surnames linked with the Castles/Cassells [my main interest.]

Lizzie signed with Judith McComb, Rebecca Jane Turkington and Jane, Essie Jane, Minnie, Sarah Jane and Sophia, all ABRAHAM, and Mary Castles. Mary and Lizzie were from Derrymacash, the rest from Derryadd.

Do you think the tombstone inscription fits with my tree?

Yup -- the marriage of the younger Edward who married Mary Castles would seem to fit the info on the tombstone.

I think the Edward Abraham husband of Elizabeth Cassells is my great great uncle. Edward was foreman at the Ffordes estate of Rathlin. He was a member of LOL 17 - Tamnificarbet. My great great grandfather was Edward Abraham - his daughter, my great grandmother, Margaret Ann was married to Joseph Russell - they married at Ardmore 1886 - they died at Kilvergan - Joe Jan 1948 and Margaret April 1948.
Hope this is of use.

I believe the Mary Cassel mentioned is my great grandmother. My grandfather was born July 3, 1871 in ireland and died at age 85 in 1956 in Pennsylvania,USA.
