Would that make Christine Obst a sister of Andrew Obst and is there any relation to Alan Obst?

David Bourke - (85 games Richmond, 1 game North Melbourne).
Damian Drum - (63 games Geelong, 53 games Fremantle (coach)) - is the uncle of Marcus Drum (Damian is the brother of Marcus's father Chris. This makes Francis Bourke an uncle of Marcus and David Bourke is a 1st cousin).
Marcus Drum - (22 games Fremantle, 0 games Geelong) - is a 1st cousin to Steven King (Their mothers are sisters).
Steven King - (193 games Geelong, 47 games St. Kilda).

Does that make Frank Bourke the grandfather of Kingy?
