Maurice Coghlan born 1844 in Cork Ireland..immigrated to Boston 1866 then later to North Dakota

I'm looking for information on Maurice Coghlan's parents/siblings. Maurice was born May 20th 1844 in Roberts Cove, Queenstown (renamed Cohb), County Cork Ireland, and emigrated to the US in 1866 via Boston. In 1871 he married Ellen Dorgon and started a family also in Boston. He later moved the family to North Dakota and some county history talks about a brother John, who came from Mass to help out. This John was supposed to have done woodworking on Pullman cars. Maurice's wife, Ellen Dorgan was also born in Cork on April 12 1842. Maurice's father might be Michael and Mother Ellen Draynan Kidney (some accounts say Catherine).
