Dorans and Kellys in Hancock County, Illinois

Query by matthewkmiller

I tracked down my grandfather's parents to Hancock County, Illinois. They were Thomas Doran and Mary Ann Kelly. They eventually moved to Fort Madison, Lee County, Iowa and are buried there. I'm looking for their origins. I found Mary Ann's parents, Hugh Kelly and Catherine Murphy. They are buried in Warsaw, Hancock County, Illinois. I found Thomas Doran's parents names in his obituary. They are Thomas and Catherine Doran from Carthage, Hancock County, Illinois. Thomas Doran is apparently a popular name in Carthage as I found "my" Thomas Doran, his father, Thomas Doran and at least one other Thomas Doran in Carthage. There are two articles talking about Old Tommy Doran who died in 1877 at about 100 years of age. I spoke to someone at the Hancock County Historical Society and at the County Clerk but my time was limited. I found their names while there but didn't have time to go any further. Can someone help me track down information about Thomas' parents, Thomas and Catherine Doran? Or Hugh Kelly and Catherine Murphy?

To dora_coffman who sent me a PM: I tried replying to your PM but it said I couldn't send to an inactive user so I'm replying here.

Hugh Kelly was born in 1922 in Ireland and Catherine Murphy was born in 1930 in Ireland, based on her age that was noted when she died in 1912.
