Ages on census returns, death certs etc are often inaccurate, so you need to allow at least a few years either way when searching for records. One or Two years is nothing, I've seen much bigger discrepancies ..., so certainly would not discount that possible baptism without further checking....

Murphy is a very common surname, so you need establish Anne's maiden surname to have any hope of locating a possible marriage.

You could try a search of the BMD Index for John's death, but with as common a name as he has there could be a number of possible matches and certs to choose from. You can narrow down the search a little using his estimated year of birth and whatever clues you have as to when he died. Assuming he died in the Ranelagh (Leeson Park Ave., or Westmoreland), the the registration district to check for would be 'Dublin South'.. assuming of course he died in the area he lived and worked
