Lumsden's in Belhelvie

This is an MI inscription from Belhelvie.

"this stone is erected by Alexander Lumsden farmer in Overhill of Belhelvie, spouse Jean Thom died 10 October 1824 aged 41? two children who died in infancy;his dau. Jane Lumsden died 14 Sep 1842 aged 17; above Alexander Lumsden late farmer in Overhill died 4 Dec 1857 aged 74; his grandchildren Hope Calder died 21 Jan 1861 aged 26; Jane, John and Thomas all died infancy; also Jane Calder died May 1873 aged 7; John L. Calder 17 July 1874 aged 34; John Calder snr. Pettens Croft died Dec 1879 aged 87; his wife Hope Lumsden died Jan 1898 aged 90; Hugh Gauld aged 21"

I have posted this in case it helps anyone as I had seen in a book about the Lumsdens that Alexander had died unmarried. This gravestone is situated alongside his parents gravestone(John Lumsden of Overhill and Isabel Simpson) and Isabel Simpson's parents gravestone.

I have got the line of Alexander Lumsdens daughter Hope's family, but according to Alexander's will his son John was abroad. I would be interested if anyone knew what happened to John.
