Here are a couple birth records of children who died young.

William Anthony Dolan - died 20 July 1904

Birth 1904: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2W87-PGB

Pauline Margaret Dolan
Birth: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:27YX-2K9

Florence T. Dolan -b. 25 Feb. 1909.

Death: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2WD2-TD9

==================

James Patrick Dolan- He lived and appears in census records.

Birth: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2W87-MGY

====

Mary's husband James is listed as an electrician in all census records.

1900 census Mary states had 2 children 2 still alive

1905 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SPNG-ZJW

In 1910 Mary is listed as mother of 8 with 4 still alive. This seems to match the birth/death records of the children posted above.

1910 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M5MK-D1B

1920 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MJP6-1RT

1930 census: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X76D-S62

I have a happy update to this question.  I found a DNA match who has this family in their tree and descends from these Dolans.  The shared DNA matches included someone else who I know descends from Margaret O'Brien and Frederick Cowperthwaite, so that seems to fit.  The tree lists Margaret & Mary (nee O'Brien)'s parents as John O'Brien and Margaret Bastick, and the children seem to be born in the vicinity of Kinnitty.  I don't see Margaret's birth record, and I'm still looking for her marriage to Frederick, so still more to find.   :)
