coleman - devlin to usa 1892

Patrick Coleman and Sarah Devlin (og).
Sarah Devlin was the daughter of John and Bridget (nee Campbell) and was born on 25th July 1869.
Patrick Coleman was the son of Michael and Jane(nee Taylor) and was born on 9th March 1867.
They were married in Ardboe, Co Tyrone, Ireland at Mullinahoe Chapel on 22nd September 1892.
Their first port of call in USA was Rochester New York in 1892. They may have sailed separately on their journey there. Sarah probably sailed on the Circassia.
From what I gather now Pat and Sarah had two children, Bernard born June 1893 and James born December 1894. It would also appear that Sarah died sometime befor 1910 as Patrick is down as a widower in the census of that year. There is a Sarah Coleman who died on 3rd October 1906 in Brooklyn and it may be her.
Bernard (at least) subsequently lived at 102, Huron St in Brooklyn and my grandfather Peter Devlin visited and indeed lived there for a time in 1922 and possibly on other occasions before and afterwards.
There is a James Coleman in North Bergen, Hudson, New Jersey in the 1930 census although it says his parents were both born in NY. He is listed as 36 and married to Geneieve(Genevieve?) also aged 36 with three children Robert 14, John 12 and Jean 6. He is listed as an automobile mechanic.
I would like to know if anyone has any information on this family and whether there are any descendants alive today.
