Susan McDevitt and John Henderson, 1890, Philladelphia PA

Looking for information on John Henderson and Susan McDevitt. Had children:

James, born circa 1888 (uncertain of birth)
John J. born 23 Nov 1890, Philadelphia. Married Helen
Balinski in 1916 and lived in Wilmington Delaware.
Anna E, born 1 Mar 1894, Philadelphia, married Robert E Conrad
Mary A, born 11 Oct 1896, Philadelphia, married Thomas

Trying to find what happened to parents. I suspect that one or both parents died between 1896 and 1900. Anna (and I think John) were living with other families in 1900. James appears to be in an orphanage. Our family has not been able to find out what happened to the parents. A baptismal record lists the names of the parents as John Henderson and Susan McDevitt.

Has anyone seen a marriage record for John Henderson and Susan McDevitt in Philadelphia, circa 1887??
