Looking for Edward Miller + Biddy Sheridan [Sherden] of Moonee Ponds

Biddy [Bridget] Sheridan arrived in OZ on the Orphan Ship Derwent circa 1849.
She travelled with her supposedly sister Fanny [Frances Sheridan].
I do not think that they were sisters, Biddy Sheridan married Edward Miller,they probably thought it better to travel as sisters!!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sheridan Biddy 15 Glen, Cavan NA RC Empl. John Daly, Moonee Ponds, ?6, 2 yrs, apprentice. Married Edward Miller in 1851, farmer, Moonee Ponds, Edgecombe and Malmsbury, 6 children. She died by drowning 25 Feb 1863, buried Kyneton. Kyneton Guardian 28 Feb. 1863.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have not been able to trace any of her children and have drawn a blank with the
Kyneton Guardian re her death. She may not even be part of 'my' family tree if she isn't Fanny's sister, but Fanny is just as much of a problem even though we have a large family of descendant Walshams of hers who live in NZ.
