Hoping to find information on Mary McClain, b. 1853 in Rockford and died about 1822 in Chicago, having lived there for many years. Both her mother and father (James McClain and Ellen Gorman) were from Ireland. Mary was living in Chicago prior to her marriage.

Mary's father was actually James McClain, but he died while she was very young and she was raised by her step-father, James Wood/s/. Was born in Rockford, IL and married Michael Stapleton about 1876. Have not found the marriage, but she was living in Chicago prior to her marriage, so feel she was married there. Had no children, but her half-brother (James Wood) was living with them in the 1910 census in Chicago.

Thank you for any information that might be available.
