Anybody Researching these McDuffees / John, Matthew, Archibald, Enaple in Antrim

Hey, is there anybody researching these McDuffees / McAfees in Dunluce and Billy in Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland? the two John McDuffees, Matthew, Archibald, Enaple?

I believe that one of the John McDuffees buried below is the father of my great great great grandfather William W. (McDuffee) McAfee Sr. And I believe that Matthew McDuffee who married a Rankin is probably related too since Mathew is a first name in my ancestors line and my ggg grandfather sold his farm to Hugh Rankin in 1838.

Trying to connect the dots but I don't have enough information. Anyone out there know anything about these McDuffees?

My John McDuffee came with a William McQuigg probably from Islay, Scotland to Bushmills/Islandcarragh area of Co. Antrim. My William lived at Ballymagarry in Dunluce Parish in Co. Antrim. Later emigrated to Wayne Co. Ohio, USA in June of 1838.
