Margaret Ryder(Rider) Chicago 1857

I am seeking information on Margaret Ryder (Rider)who
married William O'Meara (O'Mara) at St Patrick's Catholic Church in Chicago, Illinois on July 5, 1857. She relocated with her husband, a silverplater, to Davenport, Iowa shortly after the marriage. A daughter, Mary Alice O'Meara, was born in Davenport on June 10, 1858 and baptized at St Anthony's four days later. Margaret Ryder O'Meara is said to have died circa 1860. I have been unable to find a death record or burial record to sustain this view. A Catherine Rider (Ryder) was a sponsor of Mary Alice on the occasion of her baptism. Later, Mary Alice was cared for by John and Alice Obrien. I hope some has knowledge of these people. Margaret Ryder was my great-grand- father's wife and Mary Alice a half-sister of my grand father James O'Meara
