That date is wrong.
They married 15 february 1871- the same day as the son
Laurs was baptized.

That is wrong. She can't give birth to 2 children within
6 months.It could be Laurs(born 22 january 1871) who died
on the ship.

One brother more came to Queensland:

Med Quetta et damskib fra London til Townsville, Queensland den 29 June 1885 ankomme så den tredje bro.
