What were the names of his siblings? And do the surnames; Convey, Mahon or McMahon sound familiar?

Sorry, those names don't sound familiar. I found a number of my O'Rorke clan in St. Patrick's Catholic Cemetery, Rochelle, Ogle Co. IL. The site is Online & I checked for your names. Unfortunately none showed up. Good luck in your search.

There was a Myles O'Rorke in our family -- born about 1833 in County Caven, Ireland. Family settled in Rochester when he would have still been quite young. Someone in our family had records (or memory) of Myles going to the area of Illinois you mention, but then he's pretty much lost for us. We tried to contact some of the O'Rorke's in that area of Illinois (since we ended up not so far away from there ourselves), but had no luck in finding anyone interested in the history.

Although I haven't found a connection yet with our O'Rorke side of the family, I do know that I have seen a Myles (or Miles) O'Rorke who settled in Peoria, Illinois.
