Various 19th-century Drain lines from Northern Ireland

In my continuing quest to tie my gr-gr-grandfather back to his Antrim roots, I've found myself researching various Drain lines in and around Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland, during the 19th century.

Below is a list of some of the surnames I've found that married into the Drain family in this area during this time:

Cave(s)
Connor
Devlin
Donaghy
Duffey
Gribben/Gribbon
Lowry
Lundy/Lunday/Lundie
McAllister
McCann
McConnell
McErlain
McMullin
McNeale
Miller

I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has any information about these Drain lines.

I'm particularly interested in the following families:

Francis Drain and Alice Brennan "of Ballyvicknakelly", m. 1834 in Dromore, Co. Down; known children: Patrick (who married Margaret Lundy in 1854), James, possibly John (who married Susan Lundy [Margaret's sister?]). Patrick and John eventually emigrated to the NYC area.

Patrick Drain, b. ca. 1830s in Belfast, and Sarah Devlin, b. ca. 1830s in Belfast; known child: John, b. 1864 in Belfast. Patrick had a sister Marie, b. 1854. John and Marie eventually emigrated to the Chicago area.

My direct e-mail is drane@aya.yale.edu.
