The Ballarat Courier (Vic. : 1914 - 1918 ) - Monday 25 February 1918 p.7
OBITUARY
The Funeral of the late Miss Deborah Moriarty, whose death was announced in these columns on Friday last, took place on Saturday, when the remains were removed from her late residence, No 4 Exeter street, off Wendouree Parade, for interment in the Learmonth Cemetery. The funeral, which was of a strictly private character, was attended only by the closest relatives. The service at the grave was performed by the Rev. Father Roper, of St. Patricks, and the mortuary arrangements (complete motor service) were carried out most satisfactorily by Messers Steve Wellington and Son.


No visible headstone for Deborah in Learmonth.

Mary & John & infant son:

Index to Assisted British Immigration 1839-1871
Moriarty Mary age 19 vessel 'Carleton' Jul 1857 Book 12 p. 363

It would make sense they arrived together:

So, why Tasmania? Was father John a convict?

Does not look like it.

The Victoria Police Gazette started in December 1853. This was after the Legislative Council of Victoria passed an Act on the 8th of January, 1853, for the regulation of the police force. At the time there were 7 distinct police bodies in Victoria, each acting independently. These were the Melbourne & County of Bourke Police, the City of Geelong Police, the Goldfields Police, the Gold Escort, the Water Police, the Rural Bench Constabulary and the Mounted Police.
