I am descended from David and have a lot of research on his family.  He did have a daughter Bridget but she died from burns in 1847.  Unfortunately  her age at birth doesn't match her birth  date.  Her sister Susan was a witness and the inquest can be found on Trove.  Her sister Susan married David Grant and went to NZ.  Her sister Catherine married Andrew Smith and went to USA and then Sydney.

Also Im not sure if this is correct but the Walsh and O'Loughlins are related to Bridget Boland.
O'LOUGHLIN.-April 22, 1893 at the Hospital, Broken Hill, New South Wales, Martin Daniel, of pneumonia, second son of Martin O'Loughlin, Karoola, Launceston, and nephew of M. Boland, Esq., railway contractor, Tasmania, aged 24 years. Tasmanian, Victorian, Sydney, New Zealand, and American papers please copy. R. I. P.
