given such a common surname, there could be other Daniel & Lizzie O'Briens in the area, but they showed up in the city you mentioned for births of the children - though it might be worth checking out.

The occupation for this Daniel seems to be 'moulder'

Was it in one of the 'Dakota' states (i.e. North or South) that your Daniel died ?
Seems to be quite a distance away from Philly...

There also seems to be various counties, towns and cities named Dakota.

Yip, your asking the same questions I have been thinking for some time.  My grandmother Marie was one of the children on the 1911 census that you kindly mentioned, but she was a twin and the other child is buried somewhere in South Dakota she was named Florence. So from what i can gather she was born in 1901 in Phily and moved to South Dakota.  Daniel was killed in a mining accident in Lead, Lawrence County, South Dakota. :-\

Philadelphia marriage index is online (free)- looks like a good possibility:

Hi I was doing my family tree and I found a Thomas Lambert who would have been my uncle (I think) on checking the census he was living in Westport and he had 2 stepchildren named O'Brien you have answered that query for me as it ties in with the dates I have.

That's very interesting was she originally Elizabeth Walsh and he was my great uncle, out of 14 children born I have found 11 and you have filled in the blanks for Thomas, they were both widows as his wife died in 1906
