My great grandmother Alice Obern was born in Bermuda in 1874 or 1875, her mother's maiden name was White. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

OBORN, Alice Maud………born, 3,Oct.1873……baptized 7 Jan. 1874 in St. George, Bermuda. Father, George B. Oborn and mother, Laura Ann.

I did not find a marriage of OBORN/WHITE.
Do you know if the mother was a Bermudian?

Thank you so much for the information! From what we were told, Alice Obern's father was in the navy (Brittish?) and her mother was the daughter of the White family, that supposedly owned the White Hotel in Hamilton. We are not sure if she was a Bermudan. I was also wondering if Obern and Oborn are interchangeable. Thanks again for your assistance.

I do not remember there ever being a 'White' hotel in Bermuda. Any other bits of information might help me to assist you.......put on your thinking cap and jot down anything else you can remember. You can contact me directly if you would prefer at ( or continue this way. Good hunting. Judy
PS....I took the name OBORN from the printed book of the church registers of Bermuda. It is possible that the person translating the info from the register to the book copied it incorrectly. I do not have access to the actual birth records. You can contact the Bermuda Archives and request one at a cost.

Seeking re-contact with descendants of this family of George Oborn and Laura White, md ca 1866 in Bermuda. I have new information on a brother to George Oborn and am seeking more information on George's military career.
Thank you, J Foster
