Michael and Margaret Murphy-Clinton County, Iowa

I'm looking for information on Michael Murphy and Margaret Lernard Murphy, who were both born in Ireland in 1830 and came to America in 1855. They had at least three daughters -- Rosanna Murphy North, Mary Murphy Fahey and Margaret Elizabeth Murphy Alger -- and one son, Frank Murphy. I know they lived until 1900 in Lyons, Clinton County, Iowa, but can't find any burial records. I am particularly interested in finding out where in Ireland they came from. They were apparently in Scotland at some point, as Rosanna (the oldest child) was born in Scotland. They left from Liverpool and arrived in New York in 1855.
Thank you for any information you could share.
