Connellys in Calumet

My mother's parents and grandparents were all in the Calumet area from about 1850 to 1920. Mom was actually born in Joliet,IL in 1921. Her parents were John Joseph and Mary Lynch Connelly. His parents were John J Connelly and Kate Malvey Connelly. Mary Lynch Connelly's parents were Jeremiah Lynch and Nancy Kirby. My problem is, I can't find any marriage certificates, any birth certificates, any church records, death records etc. I can find death records for some of my great uncles but not for the great grandparents. I can only find census' from 1900 on. I know the Connelly men worked at the C & H Mining Co.I've heard that there's an employment list but only has people born in Cornwall on it. I found a directory for 1916-17 and it lists the family as living in Bldg 9 Boundary Cent Loc. I taken it that it was employer owned accomodations. Also, I think Mary Lynch came from Eagle Harbor and her mother was a Kirby.
Can anyone help? I live in the Seattle area and making a trip to Calumet would be difficult at this time as I care for my 91 year old mother.
Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me. :)
