  • I would think they were married in the chapel in Churchstown South. This is in the Catholic parish of Cloyne. You may be able to get more information from the Parish Office, Church St., Cloyne, Co Cork. While the fathers referred to are Daniel and Michael, in the case of Michael he may have been the younger brother of a farmer. This older brother, if he was a farmer may be named in the Tithe Applotment Books around 1823. You could also check this source for the Miller surname. Also check Griffith's Valuations, around 1850s - siblings may be named. Churchstown is in the civil parish of Ballintemple.
