On arrival in Moreton Bay the ship was held in quarintine because of a number of cases of typhoid and dysentry.
    "Ship La Rochelle, from Hamburg. In quarantine at Dunwich. C. Heussler and Co., agents.
    THE LA ROCHELLE.
    The ship La Rochelle has been ordered into quarantine. On her arrival at Cape Moreton on the 25th December, she was reported "All well;" but when Dr. Purdie visited the vessel on Thursday afternoon, in the Platypus, he found the immigrants in so delicate a state of health that he was unable to pass them. La Rochelle left Hamburg on the 5th August last, and on the passage to the Cape of Good Hope dysentery appeared, and carried off a number of children and adults. She put into Symons Bay, and remained there in quarantine for 35 days. The number of deaths up to the time of her leaving there was 42. Thence to Moreton Bay eight or nine fatal cases occurred from dysentry, and typhus fever also carried off several. Altogether there were 62 deaths, the last eight being from typhus. When Dr. Purdie visited the ship, there were five cases of typhus fever, but two of the patients have since become convalescent. The ship was in a very clean condition. The dietary scale, as is usual in most German ships coming to Moreton Bay, appeared to have been very low. Subsequently the ship has been towed to Dunwich, the Quarantine Station, and the passengers have been landed there and lodged in the hospitals. The latest reports concerning them are satisfactory as regards their health."


  • In February 1869 Johann was granted conditional approval to select 40 acres of land at Meringandan.
  • On 18 March 1905 The Queenslander newspaper reported:- " FIFTY YEARS OF WEDDED LIFE.
    In the face of all the despairing things said about marriage, and the social problems that gather round it (including George Meredith's proposed marriage on lease), and, in the very teeth of the statement that 80,000 divorces were granted in the United States in the course of a year, it is refreshing to see an old couple who have lived together fifty years, and, using the phraseology of the comic song, these fifty years to them " don't seem a day too long."The couple shown in the photograph (reproduced herewith), Mr. and Mrs. Borgert, reside at Goombungee with their daughter, Mrs. Charles Dorries. They were married in Germany on the 23rd February, fifty years ago. In the same year (1855) they set sail for Queensland In the ship Laurence Schiller, which reached Brisbane the following year. What Brisbane— or, speaking more correctly, the Settlement -- was like then has been often told. By road, in a bullock-dray, creeping along day by day, they reached Toowoomba, and Mr. Bogert has resided on the Darling Downs since. This was the day of the squatter, when all the men moving about the country were either in the employ of, or were seeking employment from, this individual, who, in the heat and burden of those days, was pioneering and preparing the way for a new age. It has become fashionable in certain circles to malign the squatter and regard him as the modern Jacob, who has robbed Esau of his birthright ; whereas his day and generation represent a stage in the evolution of the Australian Commonwealth. Johann Nicolaus Borgert married Miss Outge Boorte Muller at Bolk, Holstein, Pastor Mua celebrating the marriage, in 1855.
    At the home of Mrs. Dorries, Goombungee, in 1905, a few friends and relatives assembled, by invitation, to do honour to the occasion. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Lau (daughter) were present, also Pastor Guhr and other friends of the Fatherland. There was some singing of the "Watch on the Rhine" and other patriotic sentiments were expressed with equal fervour, all showing that love for one's country dies hard, if it ever dies at all. In fact it seems to fall under the category of hereditary traits that are transmitted in the blood. Sir Walter Scott's "Lay of the Last Minstrel" glorifies this theme, and the following stanza, cited recently by Lord Rosebery as "one of the most eloquent ever written about the Scottish exile" (though referring to another nationality), expresses in fervent language the feeling that burns within the heart of every true patriot:—"From the lone shieling of the misty island Mountains divide us, and the waste ofeeas; 'Yet still the blood is Strong, the heart is Highland, And we in dreams behold the Hebrides" A. P. C.
    A GOLDEN WEDDING.Mr. and Mrs. Johann Borgert, who celebrated at Goombungee recently the fiftieth anniversary of their wedded life.(Photo, by A. P. Corrie.)
  • Antje Beate Muller died on 23 April 1905 in Queensland at age 74. Her death was reported in The Queenslander:- "Mrs. Borgert, the wife of an old identity on the Downs, died at Goombungee, and was buried in the Meringandan Cemetery by the Rev. G. H. Guhr (Lutheran). Only a few weeks ago Mr. and Mrs. Borgert celebrated their golden wedding, an account of which appeared in the "Queenslander." Forty years ago they landed in Queensland, and at once removed to the Darling Downs, where Mr. Borgert was in the employ of Mr. Hatton, butcher, of Toowoomba. Subsequently Mr. Borgert and his wife took up farming."
  • She was buried in Meringandan Cemetery.
