Kernans in NY>IL>IA 1800s

I'm looking for info on my great-grandfather, James W. Kernan who was born in Brooklyn, NY in 1851. He married Anna Mitchell in Sycamore, IL in 1875. They had 6 children, the youngest being my grandfather, Erwin. James died in Davenport, Iowa in 1894, when my grandfather was 3 yrs. old. Anna remarried to a man by the name of Scovil, but she died in 1896, and her sister, May, finished raising the children. I don't know who James parents were, or anything about his siblings. Nor do I know what country they came from, but older family members say they were told we are of Scottish/Irish ancestry. If anyone out there has any information that resembles this, I'd love to hear from you. D.Lee
