Patrick Dolan family of Winneshiek County

I am looking for descendents of my 3rd great-grandparents, Patrick Dolan and his wife Catherine (or Kathryn). Catherine's maiden name may possibly have been Tobin/Toban, Tollin, or Elliot. Both Patrick and Catherine were born in Ireland, exact place unknown. Patrick was born between July 1824-1830, Catherine born about 1830.
Patrick died June 29, 1906 according to a death notice in the Decorah Recorder newspaper. There is no known death date for Catherine, but it could be approximately 1873 (according to her daughter Jennie's obituary). Both Patrick and Catherine died in Bluffton, Winneshiek Co., Iowa, Patrick having been buried in St. Bridget's cemetery, Catherine's burial location unknown.
The couple had six known children, possibly a seventh that may have died in infancy. The children are as follows:
- Margaret "Maggie" Elizabeth Dolan Willson, b. 1858; d. 1929
- Mary Ann Dolan Fredenbergh, b. 1859; d. 1925
- Ellen "Nellie" Dolan Brickner, b. 1864; d. 1934
- Catherine "Kate" Teresa Dolan Fogarty, b. 1866; d. 1950
- Jane "Jennie" Agnes Dolan Duff, b. 1868; d. 1942
- Francis "Frank" Dolan, b. 1869; d. 1913
Three of the children (Margaret, Mary and Francis) are buried in St. Bridget's cemetery, Catherine in South Dakota, Ellen and Jane in Nebraska.
I am interested in any information on the family, particularly on Patrick and Catherine, and would appreciate connecting to any descendents.
