Ellen Boyd & great nephew (?) John Boyd

In 1861 my great grandmother Anna--known as Annie-- Darragh married Gilbert Higgins at the First Presbyterian church in Ahoghill C Antrim--her age was given as 22 so born c 1839
When Annie died in Busby, Renfrewshire in 1912, her parents' names were given as Patrick Darroch(Scottish spelling) and Ellen Darroch ms Boyd
I have tried on & off over a few years to discover when Ellen Boyd & Patrick Darragh were married and where--possibly C Antrim & if so, maybe also in Ahoghill. I would also like to know about any brothers that Ellen Boyd had as bc 1872 a John Boyd was born in Ireland who seemed to be a relation of my grandmother Jane Higgins --daughter of Annie & Gibert Higgins.
John turned up in 1901 & 1911 in Renfrewshire & in 1911 was livng with his wife Catherine in the same tenement as Jane Higgins & her husband George Ballantyne in Thornliebank. However, I have been unable to trace John Boyd before 1901 in Scotland

I'd be grateful for any help with this search please, or any ideas that I can follow up. thank you. Eileen
