Looking for Edward Flynn's parents, Pennsylvania

Here's what I know. My great, great grandfather Edward Flynn died in Burlington, Iowa on December 12, 1934. He was married to Nellie Jackson and they had 6 children. He apparently didn't really know his parents but Edward says that he was born in Pennsylvania on January 1, 1870. I can only find two Edward Flynn's born in 1870 (from the 1870 PA census) and neither was born in January. It's possible Edward didn't know his birthday either. Here's the link to the two Edwards: https://www.familysearch.org/search/records/index#count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3A%22Edward%20Miles%22%20%2Bsurname%3AFlynn%20%2Bbirth_place%3APennsylvania~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1870-1870&collection_id=1438024

My family would like to definitively know who Edward's parents are. Any information is greatly appreciated. c

I realize this is an old post and unlikely to be read, but if you happen to see this...Edward Miles is my great grandfather as well!  I'm curious if you ever found any additional evidence?  I've scoured the records and have come up with dead ends as well.  Lots of "unknowns".  I'm hoping DNA testing will turn up some new clues.
