Tombstones in Macroom, County Cork, Ireland

Surnames: Scriven
I have photos taken by a cousin of mine of a couple of tombstones, on the back of the photos are written Macroom, County Cork, Ireland. I'm trying to figure out the connection of these Scriven's and my family. One tombstone
says:
Erected by Ellen Scriven in Memory of her beloved husband John (or Iohn)
Scriven of Prohus who Der life April 10th 1823. Aged 47 years Being his
burying place & succeeding Family. May the Lord ____ his soul ___ Amen.

Second tombstone is kind of faded and hard to read. This is what I'm able
to make out:
Loving memory of the Scriven's of _______
Richard Scriven Died 2 September 1910
John Scriven Died 16 February 1927
Mary Scriven Died 5 May 1977
Jane Scriven Died 10 April 1962
And the Scriven's of Inghiahoury (sp?)
Thomas Scriven Died 23 September 1922
Mary Scriven Died 17 March 1919
William Scriven Died 24 September 1937
Catherine Scriven Died 1 January 1975
Thomas Scriven Died 23 November 1979

I have the two tombstones scanned and also the photos if anyone would like a copy. Do any of the names listed above sound familiar to anyone? I'm trying to find a "connection" to the Scriven I have.
Thanks
