“He Did Travel in the Wilderness”

Although Nephi refers to his "family" (1 Nephi 2:5), there are no sisters listed. Yet in 2 Nephi 5:6, sisters are included in the list of those accompanying Nephi in his flight to the land of Nephi. How old were these sisters? Were these sisters married to the sons of Ishmael who joined the group later? [See the commentary on 2 Nephi 5:6]
