Peter O'Brien

I am looking for information on Peter O'Brien, who married Ellen Murphy in the late 1830's in Wexford. I do not know exactly where in Wexford they lived, which is my goal.

They had several children - John, Bridget, James, Margaret and Mary. They emigrated to the U.S. in the 1850's, and settled in Chicago, where they lived in Holy Family parish for some time. Their daughter Bridget married Matthew Barnes in 1860. Also, Margaret married a (Patrick?) Hussey, and Mary married Simon Carey.

I have tried IGI. I found three Peter's in Griffith's - Clonhenret, Toome; Kilthomas, Ferns; Ballylucas, Kilmallock - but I am not sure what to do next. Any ideas would be appreciated.
