Christina Pringle and James Geddes

A gravestone with a bit of a mystery attached. Although it's clear that a husband and wife are buried here, there is no indication of who the names at the end represent. But I will hazard a guess that it concerns their infant children. Part of the text seems to have vanished, removed or simply fallen down.

Here is the full text:
