If I can suggest, if you, I would start by looking at the death cert for Jane mentioned from 1858

Welcome to RootsChat  :)

One possible death for Jane:

Jane Carruthers/Graham died in 1858 in Castleton, aged 61. Mother's maiden name of Dickson.

Fits well with Jane's christening details:

Name    Jane Carruthers
Residence Place    Kirk-Linton, Cumberland, England
Gender    Female
Christening Date    08 Apr 1798
Christening Date (Original)    8 Apr 1798
Christening Place    Kirk-Linton, Cumberland, England
Father's Name    Richard Carruthers
Mother's Name    Mary Dixon

The death reg may provide further details to help you with your searches now.

The details from the MI that robbiesmum has posted do seem to tie in to this Jane Carruthers. Also the age/approx birth year of the son John who died in 1849 aged 25.

There is an 1861 entry for a John Graham, aged 67 and a grocer with his own shop. Showing by himself. Marital status not included (pity!). He shows as born in Stapleton. This entry shows in Walton, Brampton. You could check to see if he shows earlier and then eliminate him as you have your John with wife Jane and family in 1841 and 1851.
