My great grand-father Hermann Oberg was reportedly a ship's captain, who jumped ship in Brisbane in order to marry my great grand-mother.

He married Emma Cripps (b. 1853 in England - d. 26 June 1903 in Brisbane) on 2 November 1875 in Brisbane.

Together they had 11 children: William (1875-1876); Joseph (1877-1960); Louisa (1879-1916); Lydia (my grand-mother)(1881-1927); Alice (1883-1924); Alfred (1885-1912); Edward (1887-1892) Mabel (1890-1890); Orelia (1891-); Herman (also known as Harry)(1894-1986); Gladys (1897-1933).

Hermann died in Brisbane Hospital in his 73 year from Chronic endocarditis and Ventricular fibrillation.
