A wife for Michael McAndrew(s), b. 1873 ?

To make our next connection foreward, a wife is needed for this Michael McAndrew(s) b. 1873 Clayton Co., Iowa.

From the Wheatland Gazette of Oct. 19, 1906, Toronto Tidings there is an obit indexed for a Michael McAndrew. It might identify his wife's given + maiden names, and mention his known parents. A look-up or local knowledge would be greatly appreciated.

Does the Catholic parish still exist for Mendon Twsp? How can area RC Marriage or Baptism Records be accessed for his family?

So far, 2 documented sources mentioning this Michael are:
1880 Census, Mendon Twsp., McGregor, Clayton co, IA: parents Michael 54 Farmer, Hanora 45 died May (on Mortality Schd.), Terance 18, Kathe 13, Richard 11, Winnie 9, son Michael 7, Magreth 1, dau. Mary FISHER 22, s-i-l Joseph FISHER 26 Farmer.

1885 IA State Census: father Michael 60, 2nd wife Mary 58, son Michael 12, Margarett 5, s-i-l Julia GLENNON 49.

Next possibility:
1895 Iowa State Census: a Michel McAndrew, Age: 22, Race: White, Birthplace: Clayton co, Iowa, Residence: Dyerrvelle, Dubuque co, Iowa (Dyersville) (Single, b. 1873; if same Michael, indicates he may have m. in Delaware or Dubuque co, IA)

There are other possible son Michael McANDREW(s) in Northen MidWest and too many duplicates of all given names, thus need identifier of his wife's name. His name and b. date alone render thousands of hits on FamilySearch and Ancestry, so more is needed to narrow the field. I would be happy to exchange data with anyone on verifing connections.

Thank you, MMM
