    Lines under the picture stated that an officer of the fifth Queensland contingent, writing from South Africa, said he had heard that one of the men, named Sweeney, had been recommended for the Victoria Cross. He rode back under fire to a man whose horse had been shot, and got the man up behind him. Then he himself was shot in the chest, and fell, gasping, 'Never mind me, save yourself, old chap, I'm done for.' Mr. Sweeney never received what would have been Queensland's first V.C, but was granted the Distinguished Conduct Medal. His brother (Mr. William Sweeney, Margate) said yesterday that the man he saved was former Police Sergeant Adams, of Cabarlah, near Toowoomba, now a plumber in Sydney.

Johann Friedrich Christof Albig

M, b. 10 August 1790, d. 17 February 1868
  • Johann Friedrich Christof Albig was also known as Frederick Heiss.
  • He was born on 10 August 1790 in Kochendorf, Germany.
  • He was the son of Georg Peter Albich and Marie Salome Hessinger.
  • At the age of 25 years, 5 months and 13 days, Johann Friedrich Christof Albig married Johanna (Rosina) Heiss, daughter of Georg Michael Heiss and Rosina Magdalena Kubach or Labachin, on 23 January 1816 in Wurtenburg, Germany. Registered at the parents of the bride and groom were Georg Michael Heiss (father of bride), Rosina Magdalena Heis (mother of bride) George Peter Albig and Maria Salome Albig father and mother of groom)

    According to a researcher in Germany, Rosina and Frederick had 13 children, but only 4 lived to adulthood. Three of these, Lorenz, Adreas Jakob and Magdalena Rosina came to Australia, Lorenz and Magdalena Rosina with their parents in 1855.
  • In August 1854 Frederick, Rosine and their two children Lorenz and Rosine applied to emigrate to Australia. Rosine (younger)'s date of birth was given as 31 Dec 1835. The date of birth of the other three was not recorded. They were all noted as born in Koschendorf District of Neckarsuim.
  • Johann Friedrich Christof Albig and Johanna (Rosina) Heiss immigrated to New South Wales, Australia, on 13 February 1855. Frederick's immigration record showed him as Friedrich Albrih, 45, travelling with Rosina aged 54 presumedly his wife, Rosina 19, and Lawrence 35. They came to Australia on the "Undine". However the Victorian Immigration records show another family, the Albich family had travelled on the "Undine" bound for Melbourne - this family consisted of a W Albich, 49, travelling with Rosine aged 47 presumedly his wife, Rosine 18, and Lorenz 27, presumedly their son.
    According to an article published by the Burwood & District Family History Group, shipping arrangements for some emigrants fell through because of the lack of numbers and the passengers had to be re-assigned. A surviving passenger contract for Frederick Albrich and his family shows the family were stranded when no suitable ship could be found for them. This would account for the different information held by the Victorian and NSW immigration authorities.
    The cut off age for assisted immigrants was 50. However, hopeful passengers often gave incorrect information in order to qualify for assisted passage. Frederick was most likely amongst their numbers, since his son Lorenz stated his age as 35 and Frederick was only 45 on his application. Frederick was at least 58 when he arrived in Australia, perhaps older.
    An article on German immigration "Auswanderer nach Australien" shows a family consisting of Christopher Albig (1790-1863), Roas born Heiss emigrated to Australia in 1854. Both died there. It says their three children Lorenz, Andreas and Rosine travelled with them. There is no record of Andreas in either the NSW or Victorian immigration records, but its believed he came to Australia later under the name of Jacob Andrew Heiss. Although the ages differ, Lorenz and Lawrence are likely the same person.
  • Between 1855 and 1856 Johann Friedrich Christof Albig and Johanna (Rosina) Heiss lived in Upper Richmond. Their grandaughter Rose Bailey (nee Werner)'s obituary written in 1952 states that the family were living at "Wyangarie" Station on the Upper Richmond (near Tabulum) before they moved to Tenterfield. Frederick's immigration details show he was assigned to Wellington Cochrane Bundock of Richmond River owner of "Wyangarie" Station.
    Although Frederick and Rosina came as assisted passengers, they were by no means poor. According to their application, Frederick Albich had 300 fl, was a farmer, well digger from Bauer und Brunnennacher.
    Frederick's son Lorenz died after a fall from a horse at the station in 1856, eighteen months after the famiy arrived in Australia. Perhaps Frederick and his wife and daughter moved to Tenterfield after the accident.
  • On 23 February 1860,his wife, Johanna (Rosina) Heiss died in New South Wales at age 66. Rosina's death certfiicate shows she was born Wurternburg, Germany and had been in New South Wales for 5 years. Maiden name Heiss, her father was a farmer. The informant was her son in law Louis Werner. Husband's name Frederick Albig. She was 66 years old and died of dropsy.
  • Sometime after Frederick came to Tenterfield, his name was changed to Frederick Albig Heiss The reason for the name change is unclear. He may have changed it to Heiss after Jacob Heiss (his son, Andreas Jacob Albig) joined him in Tenterfield in 1857, although his wife Rosina was buried under the name of Albig in 1860.
  • Johann Friedrich Christof Albig died on 17 February 1868 in New South Wales at age 77. On his death Frederick Albig was registered as Frederick Albig Heiss. He was a well sinker, aged 77 and he died of natural decay after a 7 day illness. There had been no doctor in attendance. His parents names were recorded as Unknown. The informant was his son-in-law Louis Werner of Tenterfield. The undertaker was Jacob Heiss (his son whose birth surname was Albig), minister Arthur Rutledge (Wesleyan) and witnesses were Henry Bachfield and Charles Krahe. Frederick had been born in Germany, and had been in NSW for 12 years. Frederick had married at age 26 to Johanna Rosina Heiss and their children were Laurence, Rosina (twins since deceased), Christian 41, Andrew 38, Jacob 35 and Rosina 31.
  • He was buried on 19 February 1868 in Tenterfield Cemetery. He is buried in an unmarked grave in the Methodist Section Row C/Lot 24.

At the time of application he was a baker and day labourer. His wife never came with him, but his son Johann Martin Bonhag who was only 15 when his father left for Australia, followed him later on the "Gottorp" in 1857 - with Jacob Andrew Heiss (Albig), his uncle.
