Hello, Dillcom. Welcome to RootsChat.
From birth registration: Father John James Burke, mother Rebecca, maiden name King.
1911 Irish census family was at Henry St., Londonderry. Samuel's siblings were Elizabeth, Jane, Rebecca, Anne, Alice and Mabel. Father's occupation was printer.
Are you looking for information about Samuel after his emigration to Canada or U.SA. or between 1911 and 1935?
Was he on 1940 U.S. census?

Hi can I just ask why is the year of possible departure to the USA or Canada c 1935 so relevant, as I can see a departure of a Samuel Burke occ Labourer aged 22 from a Londonderry address in 1928?
Just thought I would bump this up in the hope more help is available you.

Seeing mention in previous post of Henry Street Londonderry a Samuel Burke 22 occ Labourer returned from Montreal to Glasgow 15th September 1928 with an address of 11, Henry Street, Londonderry?

Possibility the 2 Samuel Burkes who went to Canada in 1928 were cousins?
1901 census:

Aubrey St. (No. 3 Urban, Londonderry)
John James Burke (39), printer/compositor
Rebecca, wife
+ children, Elixabeth, James, Rebecca, Anne Hamilton* (5), Alice & Mabel.
All family born L/derry.

Strabane Old Rd. (Waterside, L/D)
James Burke (26), Foreman, meal & flour stores. Born Altnagalvin, Coonty Londonderry
Elizabeth Jane, wife + children Elizabeth, Anabella & John James.

* A younger son of James Burke of Strabane Old Rd. was called Hamilton. See 1911 census.

Birth registration of James Burke, above?
30th June 1875 James Burke. POB Altnagelvin. Father John James Burke, abode Altnagelvin, labourer. Mother Eliza Burke, formerly Hamilton*. Informant at birth Eliza Burke, present at birth, Altnagelvin. (A relative by name of Eliza Burke? If she was the mother it would have been impossible for her to have been anywhere else at the time of birth.  ;D)

Unfortunately birth of John James Burke was probably pre civil registration, so can't say who his parents were. The Hamilton ingredient may be a coincidence.

Birth registration of a Samuel Burke:
4th June 1910 Samuel Burke, 38 Strabane Rd. Father James Burke, labourer. Mother Eliza Jane Burke, formerly Dailey.

The other Samuel Burke born 1910 was Samuel Joseph, parents Patrick, occ. shoemaker, & Mary (Armstrong) of Chapel Rd. (Same address as on 1911 census.)

Marriage 29th Oct. 1896 James Burke & Eliza Daly, L/Derry.
Couldn't see marriage of John James Burke & Rebecca.

Marriage John James Burk & Rebecca King 25th May 1886. His father's name looks like Thomas. Hers was John. Marriage was at Ballyarnell (?) Presbyterian Church, Templemore (?) parish, Co. L/Derry. Witnesses John Armstrong and Rebecca McElhinney (?)
Searching for a marriage of Rebecca King got a result. Groom's name is John Burk in index.

Marriage of parents of James Burke (b. 1875, father of Samuel b. 1910, Hamilton, Annabella, Matilda, et al.)
John James Burke & Eliza Hamilton
1872 Londonderry q1, vol 2, p. 264

The 2 Samuel Burkes weren't 1st cousins then. The fact that siblings of both had Hamilton as part of their names was coincidence.
I did wonder as well about one family being Presbyterian and the other Methodist.
