Samuel Coleman B 1841 Ohio

I am looking for any information on the parents of Samuel Coleman who was born in 1841 in Ohio. The 1880 census made an error and had him listed as 59 when he was actually 29. He married a woman by the name of Rebecca. He has five children in the 1880 census (Fayette, IL) being John 19, Elender 14, William 11, Elias 9, and Sarah 5. In the 1870 (Morgan, IL) census he is listed as Samul Colman 29 with wife Rebecca 28. Children are listed as John 10, Ellender 4, William Herman 1. All children were born in Illinois. The 1880 census states that Samuel's father was born in NJ and mother in Ireland. The 1870 census also has a Joseph Coleman living with them. I believe this to be Samuel's brother. He is listed as being born in 1846 in Ohio as well. He is also listed as being "Idiotic". I have no record of them from the 1860 census. I do find a marriage record for a Rebeca A Howard and Samuel Coleman in Effingham Illinois listed as 06 April 1862. Due to the proximity, I feel this is a strong option. Any help on this line would be greatly appreciated.
