Hi I am actually researching the Beamish-Swanton family but I became interested in Robert Henry Burke:

#013111 Co York, Toronto
Robert Henry Burke, 21, born Toronto, residence Toronto, bachelor, Iron founder, s/o Jefferson and Sarah Burke,
married Maggie Peterburgh, 21, res. Toronto, born Vaughan,
d/o Joseph and Mary Peterburgh, witnesses: Sarah Swanton,
and Samuel Ferris, of Toronto, 24th December 1879, bridegroom, presbyterian, bride Methodist, married by J.M.
Cameron, by license.

Because Robert and Maggie (Puterbaugh) Burk had a son named Robert Henry Burke who died aged 3 days on December 29, 1883, interred December 30 1883 in St..James cemetery. The reason I was interested in him is because he is interred in a plot belonging to Mrs. Evis Beamish. I think that Robert Sr was the brother of Clara Elizabeth Burke who married George Beamish (s/o Evis). Both George and Clara died quite young in 1889 and 1884 respectively and left 3 young children. Did you have any information about what might have happened to them. I tracked down one daughter. I though that Annie or George Beamish might have ended up with their Burke relatives.

BTW both Robert Henry Burk (indexed BURKS) birth and death registration are on Ancestry.ca
