The full text is "In memory of Js Rutherford (Joiner), son of the late Robert Rutherford (Joiner) Bonchester Bridge, and Isabella Hall his wife.
Died at Effledge 11th December 1881, aged 29 years, also Isabella their daughter who died at Hallrule, Jan 1860, aged 9 years"

I read that as Isabella who died aged 9 is the daughter of Js Rutherford and Isabella Hall. But I may be wrong. :-\

Either your theory is correct, or the date of death of the Isabella mentioned on the stone is incorrect. You say "James Dies 1881 (is a date on stone of 1883 or 5)" so perhaps there were issues with dates - unknown or illegible on the stone?

Might there be another Isabella you are not aware of?

I think the previous advice to check lair records is your best way forward. Let us know how you get on.  :)
