When Rose Murphy died in 1903 (at 24 Little May Street), her daughter Mary Ann Graham was the informant at registration and reported that Rose was the widow of William Murphy:

In that light, and given the name Duncan Graham mentioned as the father in the 1908 record of the marriage of Mary Rosina Graham to John St. John, note the following marriage in August 1887 for a Mary Ann Murphy and a sailor called Joseph Duncan G ? (it's been transcribed as Grieve), Mary Ann's father was recorded as William, and her Ballyhornan address is right on the money in relation to the Dunsford birthplace mentioned in the 1911 census (the marriage actually took place in Dunsford RC church):

Note also that 9 months later, a fisherman called Joseph Graham and Mary Ann Murphy had a son Joseph at Ballyhornan:

The following 1885 birth of a daughter Rosina to Mary Ann Murphy at Ballyhornan would suggest that Rosina later took the Graham name:
