John Madden of Homestead, PA

Has a John Madden of Homestead, PA (a steel town just across the river from Pittsburgh) come up on anyone's list?
John was married to Delia Madden ( born circa 1860). We know Delia immigrated to the U.S. from Ireland around 1876, married John about 1880 and moved with him from Pittsburgh to Homestead around 1887.
From at least 1891-1898 John was a steelworker. He died around the turn of the century.
Delia then ran a boarding house in Homestead, which she owned.
The couple had five children: John (1881), Margaret (1883), Mary (1884), Agnes Leona (1887), and Catherine (1889)
John Madden went out west for his health. He died in Denver, Colorado, aged 30. Margaret Madden never married.
Mary married a Mark Monk. They moved to Chicago, then back to Pittsburgh.
Agnes Madden was a schoolteacher at Lincoln Place School from about 1909 to 1913, when she died,
Catherine graduated from grade school in 1905. She died of heart trouble in November 1906.
According to the 1930 Allegheny, PA census, Delia was still alive and living with Margaret and the Monks.
Does any of this sound familiar to anyone? Thanks in advance for your help.
