Sally,the first thing you need to do is give some approximite dates for Samuel and Mary.Also,your best bet is to find a marriage cert for them which would hopefully have parents names on it especially in Mary's case as Rafferty is quite common.I couldn't locate them in either the 1870 or 1880 census.Is this Samuel's death cert?
died 21 May 1900 in Wisconsin
age 76 born @ 1824
If it is you may want to get a copy of it and Marys as well as they may have very useful info(ie parents names).Also,I found three marriage certs of children(one whom you don't seem to have)and on two of them they say that they were born in Minnesota.
