Some of these records you can look at for free at labs.familysearch.org and Ancestry.com. For those you cannot see for free I suggest checking with your local libraries to see if they have Ancestry or Heritage Quest.

The Philadelphia marriages index database lists James Francis Donegan married to Laura Virginia Weikel in 1898: http://search.labs.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html?datestamp=1195390820093#c=1388247;p=collectionDetails

The Philadelphia death records database lists a Richard Donegan who died in 1909 whose parents were Matthew Donegan and Margaret Carberry. He may be the Richard listed in the 1880 census above: http://search.labs.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html?datestamp=1195390820093#c=1320976;p=collectionDetails

If you are still looking for more I suggest getting the death certificates and obituaries. If they died after Jan 1, 1906 you can try to get the death certificate directly from the PA Div. of Vital Records. The Philadelphia Free Library and the Historical Society of Pennsylvania may be able to help you with the obits. The Philadelphia Family History Center may also be able to help you.
