O'Meara family

Looking for information on a family appearing in the 1860 and 1870 Goliad County census. Following are transciptions of those two entries.

Ed Omeara, 33, male, laborer,born Ireland
Ellen Omeara, 33, female, born Ireland
Annie Omeara, 11, female, born Ireland
Mike Omeara, 9, male, born Ireland
E. Omeara, 6, female, born Texas
Kattie Omeara, 4, female, born Texas
Mary E. Omeara, 1, female, born Texas
E. Gleason, 45, male, born Ireland

Omorrow, Ellen, 43, female, white, keeping house, born Ireland
Omorrow, Elizabeth, 16, female, white, born Tx.
Omorrow, Catherine, 14, female, white, born Tx.
Omorrow, Ella, 12, female, white, born Tx.
Omorrow, John, 10, male, white, born Tx.
Carrigan, James, 3, male, white, born Tx.

From later census data, it appears this family immigrated sometime between 1852 and 1854 from Ireland. The husband, Edward O'Meara is believed to have died as the result of a gunfight and probably was buried in Goliad county. His widow, Ellen McDonald O'Meara may have married a Patrick Henry Carrigan (Kerrigan) and had one child, James. In 1880, Ellen (Helen) is in Zavala county and by 1900 most of the family has moved to Dimmit county.
The two oldest daughters married Vivian's, the oldest son married Celeste McFarland.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
