Possibly there is some connection between Rosa McGrath born in Listowel and your Mulvihill connection? Mulvihills lived north of Ottawa in Renfrew County. They appear to be from either the Listowel-Ballylongford area or just across the Shannon River in Co. Clare. Might the two families have known of each other before getting to Illinois? This often occurred. Likely your ancestor born in 1822 was born in
Ireland. Irish immigratiion to North America seems to pick up in the 1820's and 1830's but really takes off in the 1840's.
I don't know if this helps. Try the index for the Canadian census 1871 for Renfrew County, Ontario. Ottawa is in Carleton County. You can get this off the Internet thru the Ontario Genealogical Society.
