Hello
I've had a look and the nearest I can find in Dumfries 1834 is this
John Dalrymple at Caerlaverock born 26 June 1834 bapt 1 July 1834 son of George and Helen Dalrymple nee Robertson mariner
or
John son of Thomas  and Margaret Dalrymple nee Kerr born 2nd Feb and bapt  09/02/1835  at Keir Dumfries.

Does his grave give a date of birth or does the naming pattern of his children along traditional Scottish lines help?

Personally I'd go for the earlier example based on his entry in the Cemetery index for 9th  Feb 1883 age 49.
Margaret Robertson born 1776  ,Helen's mother lived with the family could that be where Margaret came from?

1841 census Glencapyle Quay Caerlavorock
Helen 35

Helen Dalrymple   35
Thomas Dalrymple   13
Robert Dalrymple   11
John Dalrymple   7
James Dalrymple   5
Mary Dalrymple   1
Margaret Robertson   65
Sarah Edgar   30
Agness Edgar   3
William Edgar   1

George was out at sea.
1851 same address


Helen Dalrymple   45 mariners wife born Caerlaverock, Dumfries
John Dalrymple   18 shoe makers apprentice
James Dalrymple   15
Mary Dalrymple   11
Janet Dalrymple   8
Margaret Dalrymple   5
George Dalrymple   2
Margaret Robertson   78

other one at Hopefield Dumfries 1841

Thomas Dalrymple   ag labourer 38
Margaret Dalrymple   36
James Dalrymple   8
John Dalrymple   6
Thos Dalrymple   4
George Dalrymple   10 Mo

But son John appears in censuses after 1851 so it can't be them.

Yes it does seem possible the names are just about the same give one or two differences. We don’t have and exact birth date only abt 1834 as he was 49 at death, on his death cert mother was given as Margaret, but  most likely they didn’t really know for sure as it usually goes the distance and time had faded
I forgot to say that this John appears to of arrived on assisted shipping to Australia  1855 aged 21 he later appears in census occ as platelayer, he marries in 1858 to a Mcdonald..

Cheers,
