Daniel (Danny) MURPHY was born in Ballyhillogue, Grenagh, Co. Cork. He died in probably before 2 Apr 1911. Daniel married Mary (Big Mary) SULLIVAN.

There is a record of the marriage of a Mary Sullivan and a Daniel Murphy in Grenagh on 26 April 1857. Witnesses were John Healy and John Denahy. However, there is no proof that the marriage related to our Mary and Danny, and one would expect anyway that the marriage would have taken place in Mourneabbey rather than Grenagh as marriages generally took place in the bride's parish.

There is also a record of the baptism of a William Murphy, son of Daniel Murphy and Mary Sullivan, in Grenagh on 8 March 1858. Presumably William's parents were Mary and Daniel above who married in April 1857. Sponsors at the baptism were Michael Murphy and Elizabeth Sullivan.

I am told that our Danny and Mary lived in either Ballyknockane in Mourneabbey or Ballyhillogue in Grenagh, but no 1901 or 1911 census returns have been found for any Daniel Murphy in Mourneabbey. Note that Ballyhillogue now seems to be part of Mourneabbey rather than Grenagh parish. A search of the 1901 census shows a return for the household of a 50-year-old widow named Mary Murphy who lived in Ballyhilloge (alternative spelling of Ballyhillogue) in Knockantota, Grenagh. She is listed with her sons Stephen, aged 27, and 26-year-old Daniel.  The 1911 census tells us that Mary (whose age is now 68!) is living in Ballyhillogue with her son Daniel (now 30!). Could Mary have been the wife of our Danny above? According to the 1911 census Mary had been married for 30 years and had 11 children, eight of whom were alive at the time of the census.

Mary (Big Mary) SULLIVAN [Parents] was born in Caheraveelane, Kilshannig; or Glynn, Mourneabbey. She died in probably after 2 Apr 1911. Mary married Daniel (Danny) MURPHY.

It is thought Séamus had a daughter named Mary who married a man by the name of Murphy from Ballyhillogue in Grenagh (although Ballyhillogue now seems to be in the parish of Mourneabbey).

They had the following children.
