The Will site was acting up earlier but I've edited the link so hopefully it will work- just keep trying until it does.

It may be that the reason only Sarah out of Archibald's children really inherited was that the others had left the area/Ireland or gone to Scotland. Sarah might have been the child who stayed home to look after the parents and therefore father felt she deserved to get his property. The 'one shilling' legacy was to prevent any other children making a claim to the estate (if not mentioned in the Will they could claim he'd merely forgotten to include them).

Note that McGlade marriage gives Owen's residence as Paisley and witnesses are John & Mary Henderson- https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1892/10633/5873948.pdf

Drumduff townland is just north of Irvinestown-

https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0313  IF they are yours and R.C

Hi Hallmark,

Can you point me in the direction of of the actual Birth or marriage please i.e. the date so I can ry fathom out the hand writing.

Thanks in advance,

The parish registers are notoriously hard to read, and yours is in Latin I think.
You have a rough idea of some of the children's births from that 1851 Census inquiry, and Sarah's from the 1901 census w/ Owen McGrade. I have them as:

Archibald Henderson (c 1815 - 25 Dec 1890)
      married 1840
  + Bridget McIlroy (c 1817 - )
      - Margaret Henderson (1841 - )
      - John Henderson (1845 - )
      - Catherine Henderson (1 June 1846 - )
      - Bridget Henderson (1849 - )
      - Mary Henderson ( )
             informant at death of father
      - John Henderson ( )
      - James Henderson ( )
      - Sarah Henderson (c 1860 - )
              + Owen McGrade

I only put Mary, John, and James where they are because it feels like Sarah was the youngest. No proof.
And the 1851 census inquiry said the parents were married in 1840, but I don't think the marriage register covered that year. I only took a brief look.
Cambridgeshire: Billups, Cropley; Derbyshire: Jenkinson, Gratton; Co Down: O'Rourke, Rodgers, Cunningham

Does Patrick Mulholland's 1876 marriage record say if his father John was deceased? If it does, then he was. If it doesn't say, then you can't tell either way.

 If the writing is difficult then Zoom right in and check Left Pages... then Right Pages using the Filters for Year etc

If my memory is correct they start a few years to late for 1840 Marriage!

Found James- although I think he was born before 1864- died 1934 in Ohio, U.S.A.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X67F-279

Possibly James P. Henderson with wife Sarah in 1930 census-
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X4C9-92N

1920 census with children Frances, Lawrence P. & Julia L.-
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MD1S-Z28
1910 census- same 3 children-
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:ML6Z-XDZ

1900 census says James Henderson born May 1859 which is probably more accurate (wonder if his baptism in Ireland can be found)- other 2 children are Lillian & Leo-
