Gardner & Hazelton families in Antrim, Ireland

I'm looking for information on any of the following: Archibald Gardner, Sarah Hazelton, John Hazelton, Ruth Chestnut, Eliza & Margaret (Peggy) Hazelton - thought to have lived in or near Toberdoney, Dervock, Ireland.

My gggrandfather, Archibald Gardner, later changed to Gardiner in PA, was born about 1822 in Antrim. He was living in Pittsburgh, PA in 1850 with his wife, Sarah Hazelton, and her parents - John and Ruth Chestnut Hazelton. Their son, Arcjie, was born in 1855 and their daughter, Sarah, in 1860.

The Hazeltons were members of the Presbyterian Church in Dervock and Eliza and Peggy were baptised in this church. I'm hoping to locate Sarah (b. abt 1823), Archibald (b. abt 1822) and/or anyone related to the names above.

I found the following on the internet:
DERVOCK PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH
10 August 1829. John Chestnut chosen as Elder of the church by the
congregation.
Baptisms of children of John HAZELTON and Ruth Chestnut of Toberdoney townland.Eliza, 21 August 1824/25
Peggy, 7 June 1835

Thank you for any help.
