I believe your family of Francis Devlin and Elizabeth McLaughlin looks something like this:

Children, as found on familysearch.org:

Henry Devlin, born c1853 Scotland
Thomas Devlin, born June 3, 1856 Dalry, Ayrshire, died Feb. 1, 1940 Witt, Montgomery, Illinois, spouse Isabella Curran
Francis Devlin, born Jan. 3, 1858 Dalry, Ayrshire, spouse Jane Smith
Mary Ann Devlin, born Nov. 26, 1859 Dalry, Ayrshire
Elizabeth Devlin, born Oct. 4, 1861 West Kilbride, Ayrshire
Cathrine Devlin, born March 13, 1864 Dalry, Ayrshire
Hellen Develin, born Nov. 17, 1871 Dalry, Ayrshire
Margaret Devlin, born May 25, 1877 Ayrshire, died Aug. 28, 1924 Virden, Macoupin, Illinois, spouse Charles Gaffney (there is a Thomas Gaffney who has a tree posted on GenesReunited.com with these Devlin parents in it)

Census findings, from ancestry.com:

Scotland started civil registration in 1855. Their death records are very detailed. There is a pay-per-view website called scotlandspeople.gov.uk that has images of the civil records, and when I checked the indexes for a Francis Devlin who died between 1881 and 1891, I did not find one in Dalry, but I did find one in Paisley. If this is your Francis, you should find his parents on his death record.
