I would check for his immigration record, it will tell you if he was married or single when he came here.
His naturalization record may offer some information also. (I believe the one census states he was naturalized in 1890.)
Since he is listed as being married for 15 years in the 1910 census. and married at the age of 30 in the 1930 census
(normal variants) his marriage year would be between 1895-1898.

Sometimes the obituaries list marriage information.

Elizabeth is listed I believe with various immigration years which is not uncommon, as she may have left to go home to family, came back, left, came back. Also, memories fail. However, Samuel's stays the same 1888, so I would venture to say they married in the USA.

You could write or visit the Lackawana Historical Society, or Orphans Court, County Clerk.

There are quite a number of genealogy sites on the net.

Oh and there is also a Richard Roberts in the same census.

I would be happy to assist you. You can email me if you wish. :)
