Bridget Lavin - HIll of Illinois 1850

My great-great grandparents were John and Bridget (Lavin) Hill of Peoria Illinois, both originally from Ireland. My assumption is that they were both born in the 1820's or 30's and came to America by 1850, settling in Peoria, Illinois. One of my sources says that they had 3 daughters, Mary (my Great-grandmother), Theresa, and Katharine and 2 sons, Robert and Hollis. By 1885 they were in Decatur, Il. as the witnesses to my g-grandparents, Alonzo and Mary (Hill) Card's marriage.
