HI Dorothy, how much info do you have.? Have you checked out info on Ancestry etc re censuses or other?
David jnr. on some family trees has 3 Sisters who seem to have survived childhood according to censuses. Margaret Jane & Elizabeth.( as on 1881 census)
1861 also mentions Catherine 6mths & James Bremner 21, Brother to Donald Bremner (not David) he is possibly the same Man who was accidentally killed when run down by a horse in Darlinghurst NSW. He died in St.Vincents Hospital. Inquest held 2 Jan
1901. Age 59

1851 shows his siblings.
If you can tell us what you have it may be easier to help you.
