Sterling had been shipwrecked on James Norman Hall's ship 'Pro Patria,' on the sandspit called Temoe, and had made his way with other Pitcairners to Mangareva. Sterling and Aunoa wished to be married, but authorities would not allow the marriage because Sterling could not produce a birth certificate (which was on Pitcairn Island). Captain Irving and Electa Johnson of the sailing ship Yankee called at Mangareva, and find the Pitcairners shipwrecked there, agreed to take them back to Pitcairn. One the voyage, because of the clearly true love Sterling and Aunoa showed for each other, Captain Johnson, as was allowed at sea, married the couple, she using the bridal gown Electa Johnson had used on her wedding day.
