Skibereen- Donovans, OBriens, Sweeneys, Barretts, Brickleys Dunham Township

Classification: Query
Surnames: Donovans, OBriens, Brickleys, Sweeneys, Barretts,
It certainly won't hurt to ask. A very small farm community known as the Island in Harvard Illinois (60 miles nw of chicago) had nearly all settlers from Skibereen. They arrived in the 1840s and farmed for many years with moany descendants still around. I have had trouble getting a connection on any of these families beyond grave markers exclaiming County Cork Connections. Does anyone have info. on any relatives with last names: OBrien, Donovans, Sweeneys, Barretts, or Brickleys that settled in Harvard or Dunham Towhship Illinois.... Thanks for any comments!
